We have a requirement to share PDF documents on Jitsi. I’m aware Jitsi does not support this by default and it can be achieved using screen share easily but my management does not want to use screen share.
So far I have this idea:
- Convert PDF into images. (Now the problem is sharing images over jitsi that can change by click of a button)
- To send the image I’d join the meeting as one more user (say PdfUser).
- i.Convert the image into a video and share it using startShareVideo in iFrame API.
ii.Every time a page is changed, I’ll pull the video convert the second page to video and push it.
- i. Modifying the avatar code in a way so that I can show an image(PDF page) that changes dynamically
It would be really helpful to have the communities inputs on how to go about this. Have anyone tried this before? Any suggestions where I should start looking in the source code?
