[jitsi-dev] Thanks @ Hugh Barnard

@ Hugh, thanks for the helpful clues, and apologies for not responding
immediately.
Your responses led me to look up 'port multiplexing'. I poked around my
prosody config and (finally!) managed to get both jicofo and jvb up.
But no streaming/camera view. Need to sort out DNS resolves, I think. Or
maybe get to jidesha. I don't know.

1) Should the camera show me on the monitor "out of the box" if I click on
the browser permissions prompts?
Or is a static black screen to be expected till domain name gets resolved
in DNS?
I honestly have no idea what I've done right or wrong, but the prompts for
permissions to use the mic and webcam happen, and when i click yes to
share, no video.
However, there's an 'active' status with a blinking red dot on the browser
tab . The screen has an unchanged greytone page message: "*Jitsi-meet needs
to*...")
If someone reading this knows how to figure out what's going on using
a *domain-name/pre-bind
*/*http-bind* approach in the address bar ( or any other correct approach),
thanks for throwing a clue this way!

2) Do I need any other SDK to make/change the welcome page? I have
lib-jitsi in a folder with the same name.

Amateur coder here, so please spell it out to the extent
possible/permissible [^_^] I'll follow any instructions as best as I can.

Best regards to the brilliant minds who created jitsi,

Hi Mkr

Sorry, I'm now a little tied up with other stuff too, but see below. Best

Good, maybe just use bare IP address to simplify the problem. I did that
and added DNS when the rest of it started to work/

Yes, should show you view from your camera. I had grey screen, that was due
to this:

But also, I notice that the local feed takes a moment to come up, a few
things need to sort themselves out, I guess.

If Chrome use Crtl+Shift+ J to show the javascript console, look especially
for entries in red. Otherwise firebug, but I had some problems with Firefox
for some reason.

Nope.
