[jitsi-users] Jitsi & audio devices


#1

For the past while I've been using Jitsi for Windows as my daily use XMPP client. However, in that time I've noted that it causes some problems.

I don't use it for anything involving audio. Just text chat via a private XMPP server.

On that basis I've got the audio system setting set to "None." Similarly, the camera selection is set to "no device."

Even so, I find that Jitsi reacts every time a USB media device is added/removed. I do this a lot. Sometimes it seems that all the activity causes Windows to lose control of the USB subsystem. The entire system becomes unresponsive.

This highlight the logic of a PS-2 type keyboard+mouse. When Windows loses it's USB control all I/O goes away for a while.

I would have thought that with the audio & video devices effectively disabled Jitsi would ignore the comings & goings of USB devices.

Hello Michael,

The notification can be disabled by going to Tools->Options->Events
and unticking checkbox next to "Device configuration has changed". But
this will not turn off the device hotplug detection which will
continue to work in background. We're going to look for a way to
disable it.

Regards,
Pawel
