I've just set up Jitsi Meet on a Debian 7 (wheezy) Virtual Machine running
under KVM. I've followed the first part of the instructions at
https://jitsi.org/qi (ie: down as far as, and including "Open a conference").
From a (real hardware) client, I use Chrome to connect to the Jitsi server IP
address, and I get offered a conference URL. I accept this, and I then get
joined to a new conference and I can see my own video stream.
So far, so good - that was nice and easy to get going
If I then connect to the same URL from another machine (also real hardware,
and just to be clear, all three machines are on the same 192.168.36.0/24
network with no NAT involved), I also see my local video stream on that
machine, and I can see on both machines that there's a second person now in
The problem is that I get no audio or video between the two clients - the
"other participant" window on one machine is blank, and on the other it just
has one of those default Jitsi avatars in it, but there's no display of the
other machine's video stream on either. I also get no audio on machine A from
machine B or vice versa.
I do know that there's no problem with the clients themselves, because if I
point them at https://meet.jit.si/Something they can conference completely as
expected (and that is also going through NAT, of course).
1. Is this a known problem; should I have done something different from the
(surprisingly easy) instructions at https://jitsi.org/qi ?
2. Where should I look for log messages indicating what might be wrong? I've
found /var/log/jitsi with jvb.log and jicofo.log in it, but I'm not sure how
to make sense of what I find in those files.
I there's any other info I can provide to help work out what's wrong, please
tell me what to post.
