Do you have valid certificate?
Or self-signed…?

it is a self signed certificate

Then you need “--ignore-certificate-errors” in your jibri.conf

This is my conf in /etc/jitsi/jibri/jibri.conf in the Jibri container

jibri {
chrome {
flags = [

But you have acceptInsecureCerts: false in your log.

yes , thats why i’m confused about the issue. I have restarted the instance multiple times after adding this flag

are there any other flags i can try to add to resolve the issue?

You can check this template

thank you! i copied the entire template and made the required changes and the recording is working now. it starts and stops but cannot find the recorded file. i have set the recordings-directory = “/tmp/” and finalize-script = “” .

Should I set something in the finalize-script path ? do you know why the recordings are not saved or where they would be saved in?

I don’t know how it works on Docker setup but it should be in the /tmp folder of the container. Did you check the container folder or the host folder?


yes i checked both but did not find it.

strange… maybe you can find something related in the logs

please share the jibri logs. Also, try to map different directory(it might be a directory permission issue).

check this out. you can try this example. but before spinning it up, change the meet.example.com to your_domain or whatever default config you are using. Also, please double-check the networking part.
