[jitsi-dev] meet.jit.si doesn't work without webcam


#1

I wanted to use meet.jit.si with my colleagues and just share them my screen. But I couldn't, because I don't have a webcam.

In browser's (Chrome) console are the following errors:

strophe.jingle.adapter.js?v=1:615: Failed to get access to local media. Error NavigatorUserMediaError {constraintName: "", message: "", name: "DevicesNotFoundError"}

app.js?v=4:125: failed to obtain audio/video stream - stop NavigatorUserMediaError {constraintName: "", message: "", name: "DevicesNotFoundError"}

I think those errors should be handled more gracefuly, and allow people joining the room, even for just voice chat.

Hi Jan,

I have also seen this issue with a colleague who had a faulty webcam.

It can also be reproduced for those who have a web cam simply by
removing the kernel module like this:
$ sudo rmmod uvcvideo

Further, not so useful other than for testing, but you could still join
a conference but not share audio/video by using a fake audio device like
this:
$ chromium-browser --use-fake-device-for-media-stream

Cheers,
Markus
