[jitsi-dev] Screen sharing with Internet Explorer


#1

Hi Jitsi Team.

I understand that sharing screen requires the interaction of two parts:
support in Jitsi Meet + installation of an extension (Jidesha).

From what I was seeing, Jidesha extension is used to share screen with
Firefox and Chrome/Chromium, but I would like to know if it is possible
to share screen also with Internet Explorer through some other
extension/addon. Although, as I said before, I guess this will need to
interact with a piece of code that makes this possible on the side of
Jitsi Meet and at least for now I do not see any hint of that (as I see
it for Firefox and Chrome) in the config.js file.

I would like to know if you are currently working on this or intend to
do so in the future.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Researching on Internet I found a Tamasys plugin ([1], [2]) that would
be compatible with Jitsi Meet. Can anyone confirm? It is the only option?

Apparently, only the standard version (not free) supports screen sharing.

One question aside: neither Internet Explorer nor Safari have native
support for WebRTC?

Kind regards,
Daniel

No they don’t. But if you visit meet.jit.si on either you’ll be prompted for the plugin installation, that’s automatic and integrated with Jitsi Meet. Note however, that the experience is not as good as it is in a browser which natively supports WebRTC.

Cheers,

Thanks for confirm. When you talk about this plugin, do you mean the one
from Temasys?

And for those of us who have our own Jitsi Meet installations, what
options are there to use WebRTC with screen sharing in these browsers?

Thanks for your time.

Kind regards,
Daniel

IIRC the plugin is free to use for non-commercial purposes, it should Just Work for you too.

Is it necessary to add something in config.js as with the other plugins?

It seems that screen sharing is only available with the commercial
version :frowning:

I was doing a test with a person using Internet Explorer to access my
Jitsi Meet. After installing the plugin, she sees the following screen:

I asked her to close the browser and reopen it, accessing the site
again. But the result was the same.

Any thoughts if we're missing something?

What Internet Explorer were they using? It’s not edge, right?

I'm not sure what version of Explorer it was, but I can confirm it was
Explorer. Here you can see some screenshots:

https://ibin.co/3P5JSUIm0xGC.jpg (before install the plugin)
https://ibin.co/3P5JlX6uRpZh.jpg (after install the plugin)

In my Jitsi Meet I have configured authentication to create a new room
so I expected the person accessing with Explorer to sees a screen to
enter user and password, but she got what I showed in the other email.

I'll try to figure out which version she was using and also do a test
with meet.jit.si (since there is no authentication, in case the issue
might be related to that --- do you think it might be related?).

Thanks for your reply.

Kind regards,
Daniel

The Internet Explorer version is 11.0.9600.18378 running on Windows 8 I
think.
