How to install jitsi-meet, jicofo and jitsi videobridge through source code


#1

Please help me, how to install jitsi-meet, jicofo and jitsi videobridge through source code on ubuntu-16.04

If you want to play with the source code and modify any of the components, my recommendation will be to just deploy an instance with the default quick-install guide with installing nginx before that, verify that it is working. Than you can start replacing the components you want from source. Stop videobridge (/etc/init.d/jitsi-videobridge) and start it from source passing the same arguments that the running instance was using, the values are in /etc/jitsi/videobridge/config, same goes and for jicofo.
For meet check it out in a folder, do npm install && make and just change in nginx the root folder from /usr/share/jitsi-meet to the location where you just compiled jitsi-meet and restart nginx and you will be serving the jitsi-meet instance from source.

thanks @damencho

I am able to run jicofo from source code and replace build in /usr/share/jicofo/

And also I try to build jitsi-videobridge from source, it is built

But unable to access on browser. the URL is not found/page not found.


#4

I have cloned jitsi-videobridge and build using mvn install -Dassembly.skipAssembly=false

And replaced jitsi-videobridge files in /usr/share/jitsi-videobridge

After the changes made, The url is page not.


#5

Did you install nginx? If page is not found it is the webserver not serving it, which is your web server?


#6

Installed nginx and am using firefox and google chrome

But thing is I built jitsi-videobridge using maven and generated .zip file in the target folder.

I replaced jitisi-videobridge jar file in /usr/share/jitsi-videobridge/ and restarted jitsi-videobridge service.

After the made changes I have accessed URL, the page is showing Unable to Connect.


#7

So the webserver is not running find why. Did you install nginx before jitsi-meet or after?
