[jitsi-users] Screenshare doesn't work if no camera device is connected


#1

I've been having trouble sharing the screen when no camera device is
connected, but I don't know when it was introduced.
it may relate to this thread of 2 days ago (Jitsi-Meet screen share
extension <http://lists.jitsi.org/pipermail/users/2017-February/012288.html>
)

I've tried with meet.jit.si and beta.meet.jit.si as well and it failed for
most of conferences (kind of 9 out of 10)

I run tests in three different computers, desktops linux and mac and laptop
linux, and it works as soon as a camera is connected in any of the desktop
computers.

No exception occurred during screensharing session. I get two exceptions
after stopping the screen sharing: 'failed to create local tracks' and
'failed to share local video'.

Hi Camilo,

I tried this yesterday and worked fine here, can you try again?

Cheers,

Screen sharing is working now even with no attached camera device :slight_smile:
However, after screen sharing stops, the second user kept receiving a black
frame forever. I tried three times and it happened all of them. New
participants don't receive the black frame.
