How to set meeting background using image?


On, I already know how to set background to different colors using DEFAULT_BACKGROUND

but how to use a image url as background? I tried like DEFAULT_BACKGROUND: “url(‘’)”

but it doesn’t work!

Create a custom /etc/jitsi/meet/DOMAIN-body.html, add it to nginx:

location = /body.html {
    alias /etc/jitsi/meet/DOMAIN-body.html;

Reload Nginx and put all the CSS changes there, for example:

#largeVideoContainer {
    background-image: url(images/welcome-background.png);
    height: 100%;

You can see it in action in

P.S.: You also have the following section in config.js, but I haven’t used it.

Thanks, that’s awesome! However, I forgot to mention that I am using not my own server

Ah I see - well, I’m not sure how to do this technically. You also need to make sure you have the right, as the T&C of forbid changing the branding, and a custom background image can easily do that.
