Jisti/Jibri Localhost Connection

I am trying to connect to Jibri, and I keep getting this error:

BridgeChannel.js:83 WebSocket connection to 'wss://localhost/colibri-ws/default-id/b8d2fdc0f429527e/0f19a61d?pwd=4o9bc21gui4b8mnuaim85o738n' failed:

Is this error being caused by trying to connect to the localhost or is this something else?

Your deployment seems to be misconfigured. Unless Jibri is on the same machine as the rest of the Jitsi components trying to connect to localhost will fail.

Do you have any clues and where I should start looking for this misconfiguration? My /etc/jitsi/jibri/jibri.conf looks like this:

jibri {

// A unique identifier for this Jibri
  // TODO: eventually this will be required with no default
  id = ""
  // Whether or not Jibri should return to idle state after handling
  // (successfully or unsuccessfully) a request.  A value of 'true'
  // here means that a Jibri will NOT return back to the IDLE state
  // and will need to be restarted in order to be used again.

    // If all clients have their audio and video muted, Jibri consideres this
    // as an empty call and stops the recording after ALL_MUTED_TIMEOUT expires.
    all-muted-timeout = 10 minutes

    // When detecting if a call is empty, Jibri takes into consideration for how
    // long the call has been empty already. If it has been empty for more than
    // DEFAULT_CALL_EMPTY_TIMEOUT, it will consider it empty and stop the recording.
    default-call-empty-timeout = 30 seconds

How is this log related with jibri? It seems like a JVB issue.
Can you share your jvb.conf?

My jvb.conf

videobridge {
    http-servers {
        public {
            port = 9090
    websockets {
        enabled = true
        domain = "meet.example.com:443"
        tls = true

Do you have the real domain in this field or is it exacly like you pasted?

@emrah I have my real domain in there in the actual config.

When you ping your domain in jibri server, what is the result?

@emrah WhenI ping the jibri instance it hangs:

root@ip-10-0-0-230:/home/ubuntu# ping1.234.567.89

PING 1.234.567.89 (1.234.567.89) 56(84) bytes of data.

Also when I go to 1.234.567.89//jibri/api/v1.0/health, the site cannot be reached.

On the instance, Jibri is running:

root@ip-10-0-0-208:/home/ubuntu# sudo systemctl status jibri

And it also saying the jibri log:

2021-11-17 13:36:44.993 FINE: [19] org.jitsi.jibri.webhooks.v1.WebhookClient.log() Updating 0 subscribers of status

ping the jitsi-meet domain name on jibri instance, not IP…

@emrah So pinging works

ping meet.example.com

PING meet.example.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from ec2-23-45-67.compute-1.amazonaws.com ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=63 time=0.261 ms

64 bytes from ec2-23-45-67.compute-1.amazonaws.com ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=63 time=0.526 ms

I’m trying to find where this localhost comes from… There should be your jitsi-meet address here

@emrah You know whats hiliarious, I just did an apt-get update/upgrade and restarted, and magically the error is gone. I have a new issue where its no longer finding any of the jibri instances, but thanks for your help on the above.
