Jitsi Meet - Screen Sharing bad quality when presenter enables personal video additional to screen

Hi @all,

maybe you could give me advice what to do :slight_smile:

Description of our issue:
participant share its screen or application and the quality of the presentation is quite good.
the default settings of our jitsi meet is to disabling presenter video while the screen sharing has been started.
after enabling the video the quality of presentation/screen-sharing gets very bad (unreadable).
there is no way getting it better.
Workaroung: disabling screen sharing and video and start screen sharing again

we are using jitsi meet on ubuntu 18.04, virtual installation, p2p disabled, 8 core, 16gb ram, 1gbit network

installed version of most important packages:

Is this a bug, worked as designed or is there a tweak to improve the behaviour?

Thank you!


Hi @All,

I updated my jitsi setup on stable/jitsi-meet-5390, and facing the same issue.
Any update on that will help.

Thanks a lot @emrah
