Jitsi-Meet Chrome version compatibility and Coturn test result

In some of our customer environments, they have firewall and their Chrome are in old version. To meet the requirement, I tested the Coturn solution on several Chrome Version, below is my test report:
Jitsi meeting version 1:
Installation environments:

  • Ubuntu 20.04
  • Docker stable-7210-2
    Network enviroments:
    -Two groups of participants
    -Group 1 can access the meeting server and can access the JVB udp 10000 port
  • Group 2 can access the meeting server, but cannot access the JVB UDP 10000 port
  • Coturn server is used to bridge the JVB and the participants from the group 2

Test result:

  1. Chrome version 90 and later:
    Two groups work fine with each other
  2. Chrome version 83
    If there are only group 1 users, the meeting work fine
    The video/audio of the group 2 users are blocked
    If there are only two users, peer to peer work fine
  3. Chrome version 78
    Video/Audio from both groups are blocked and even peer to peer

Jitsi meeting version 2:
Installation environments:

  • Ubuntu 20.04
  • Docker stable-5993
    Network enviroments:
    -Two groups of participants
  • Group 1 can access the meeting server and can access the JVB udp 10000 port
  • Group 2 can access the meeting server, but cannot access the JVB UDP 10000 port
  • Coturn server is used to bridge the JVB and the participants from the group 2

Test result:

  1. Audio/video from group 2 are blocked on all chrome version
  2. Users of group 1 work fine on chrome version 76 and later

Jitsi meeting version 3:
mixed jitsi meeting docker, keep Web on stable-5993 and others on 7210
Test result:

  1. Audio/video from group 2 are blocked on all chrome version

So my summary is,

  1. Seams that Coturn is not supported on stable-5993, and to support Coturn,
    newer prosody or JVB are needed
  2. Seams to support Coturn, the Version of the chrome is limited
    Is my summary correct?
