[jitsi-dev] Video Bridge Service Test meet.jit.si


#1

Hi everyone

what’s wrong when the following phenomenon occurs:

  1. entering https://meet.jit.si

  2. allow access to camera and microphone

  3. send over the url to another machine

  4. enter the URL and allow access

now as shown in the video - there should be a conference - but no!

  • I see myself on the first screen but not the other side

  • the other side sees their video but not mine

  • no voice - not even feedback noise :slight_smile:

  • I’m able to send text messages though - so the system migt recognize that we’re in the same room (ok, I doublechecked the URLs)

I tried:

  • Chromium 31 (on Ubuntu 12.04) to Chrome Android (ok, that went wrong as expected as I’ve read about shortcomings of Android browsers - even if they’re called Chrome (not Chromium)

  • Chromium 31 to Chrome 31 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint - same results

  • I even dared to install the latest Chrome browser from the Google site on both sides just to encounter the same disappointment.

I’m behind NAT - the same Fritzbox for both machine - but this shouldn’t play a role since the RTPs go through the server. In the demo video it worked :slight_smile:

What’s wrong here?

Has anyone managed to conference using the service meet.jit.si the way I tried?

Do I need Chrome or is it enough to have Chromium

Any Chances to have it on Android y/or Firefox soon? ( I know I should ask this to the respective projects but maybe someone has information here what’s missing in these browsers)

Merry Christmas for all of you guys.

Hi Conrad,

- Chromium 31 (on Ubuntu 12.04) to Chrome Android (ok, that went wrong as
expected as I've read about shortcomings of Android browsers - even if they're
called Chrome (not Chromium)

chrome for android has some webrtc support, but it's typically lagging behind.

- Chromium 31 to Chrome 31 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint - same results
- I even dared to install the latest Chrome browser from the Google site on both
sides just to encounter the same disappointment.

chrome and chromium should behave the same WRT to webrtc capabilities.

I suspect it's a version problem, 31.0.1650.63 on linux seems broken for me whereas on windows everything works fine.
I have also filed a bug against chrome, see
https://code.google.com/p/webrtc/issues/detail?id=2688

There is a small "download log file" button in the lower left corner of meet.jit.si which might provide more insight. Can you send me the JSON that clicking this downloads?

Any Chances to have it on Android y/or Firefox soon? ( I know I should ask this

I'm working on Firefox compability and my mobile developer is working to get https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.estos.apps.go compatible with the bridge.

to the respective projects but maybe someone has information here what's
missing in these browsers)

Firefox is unable to play more than one audio and video stream per peerconnection. That's pretty unfortunate :-/
