[jitsi-users] Add banner


#1

Hi There

Few months ago I installed our own Jitsi-Meet server in our company.
Despite that it's working pretty well, there are some people that complain
about the communication is not good enough and there are several cuts.
Analysing their situation with some statistics, we could prove that the
problem is not because Jitsi-Meet, the problem comes from their side, their
connection is quite poor and their WiFi signal is extremely weak.

Is there any way to add a banner before the conference starts giving some
advises about how should be their connection before joining the conference?
I don't know if I'm clear enough.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards

Hi, Jack.

I'm not really sure, but I think jitsi-meet does not have that option.
You would have to make the modifications manually.

You can edit the main index and add the modal to show the message you want
to start.

On the other hand, Jitsi-meet is constantly calculating the user's
bandwidth and if it is very low it displays alert messages.

Look at the object:
APP.conference.getStats ();

You cannot do that without modifying jitsi-meet itself. However, the latest stable version contains a bunch of fixes with regards to adaptivity, so jitsi-meet should behave a lot better even on craptacular WiFi connections. Remote video will be suspended if not enough bandwidth is detected, for example.

What software versions are you running?

Cheers,

Thank you very much for replying. I'm gonna check if there is a way to do
it manually.

BTW I realized that I sent the message 3 times. Sorry for that.

Cheers.

Yes, thank you

I solved this using window.alert in the index.html. Before starting the
videoconference it shows a small popup with some recommendations.

Cheers.

Hello Saúl,

Regarding these changes on handling crap connections, is this a way to
disable it?
For example, I have simulcast enabled and I would not want to get the video
disabled message (and keep seeing the worst resolution).

Nope.

Video is only disabled if there is not enough bandwidth even for the crappiest resolution / there is too much packet loss.

Cheers,
