This is my first post in this forum.
While trying to install Jitsi Meet and Jibri on my own server(s) with these video tutorials: (https://jitsi.org/news/new-tutorial-installing-jitsi-meet-on-your-own-linux-server/ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHHoqKCjJ0E&feature=youtu.be), I ran into problems, which I want to describe below:
All attempts happened on a laptop with 2,60 GHz and 8 GB RAM, with Lubuntu 18.10 (64bit, Desktop Edition).
I want to create one single conference room with only three or four participants, and in the end, I want to record the conference (video and audio) locally on the server (no youtube livestreaming needed, but after all my unsuccessful attempts, I activated it anyway…).
I installed first the stable version of Jitsi Meet (following the instructions in the first video tutorial). All participants in the conference room saw each other with video and audio.
I have no FQDN, and I just want to use it in my internal network, so I provided the internal IP address (192.168.2.113) for the installation routine. That all worked like a charm!
Then I followed the steps in the second video tutorial to implement the recording functionality.
I installed it on the same machine; that didn’t work.
After that, I thought I can install the second server (Jibri) on a virtual machine with virt-manager, which at the beginning really worked.
But the record button was just enabled; but when I clicked it, there was no video file in the specified folder.
I thought it might be a good idea to switch the second server from the virtual machine, to another computer, but no improvement.
Then I installed the unstable version in the first step, but it made things worse. I was able to create a new conference room, but it shows the message “Maximum members limit reached” immediately. And the record button is also gone.
Is it really a basic need, to install the unstable version in the first step, or is the unstable version only needed for jibri on the second server?
Additionally, I tried to include all relevant config and log files into a zip file. I have uploaded it here:
If you are missing anything, just report it to me, and I will try to provide it, too.
Any ideas, what am I doing wrong? Please, can anyone help me with that problem?
