[jitsi-dev] Video calls in Qubes OS


#1

I'm trying to get Jitsi video calls working in Qubes
(http://qubes-os.org/), an operating system where you run all of your
software in isolated VMs. The VMs don't support 3D acceleration.

I can run Jitsi fine, and I can start video calls with other Jitsi
users. But when I look at the preview of my own webcam or the video feed
coming from the remote user, it just displays a black box -- the remote
user can see the video stream coming from my webcam though.

I assume this has to do with lack of 3D acceleration and OpenGL in the
VM. Does Jitsi support video calls on system that don't have a modern GPU?
