Jitsi Meet room name doesn't accept special chars

#1

HI,
We had use case where we wanted to add few words before room name delimiting by underscore char, so we can process Jibri recorded file as per room name.
Our Jitsi Server is quick installed one on VM.

I have chacked meet.jit.si accepts underscore(_) in room name but not our VM one.

Do I have to change config somewhere to add support for same.

Thanks,
NIlesh

This is a change in the webserver, like here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/debian/jitsi-meet/jitsi-meet.example#L33

Thanks for the response @damencho.
I have installed jitsi meet using Quick install guide.


Where can change this field?
There’s no nginx specific directory in /etc

In /etc/jitsi/videobridge/sip-communicator.properties you should have same regexp like this one: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/debian/jitsi-meet-web-config.postinst#L136

#5

is there a reason why by default underscore and dash is not supported by default?

#6

I don’t think so.

Thanks, it works now.
