[jitsi-users] video only conference


#1

I have a Jitsi Meet installation on a CentOS machine which I installed manually. Using Jitsi Meet I noticed that if one PC has the microphone disabled, videos are not switching between two users. Is it possible to ignore the microphone status and have a video only conference? Thank you.

Hi Fabrizio,

Videos are switched based on the active speaker which is detected using audio levels, so if there is no mic there is no way to know who the active speaker is and who the video should switch to. You can manually switch by clicking on the thumbnail though.

Cheers,

Actually, it is possible @Fabrizio. I've run a local env and it worked (

The current scenario is:
1 -> Request for audio and video
If 1 fails:
2 -> Request for audio
if 2 fails:
3 -> Stop requesting devices

I've added a third case that only requests for video.
if 2 fails:
3 -> Request for video
if 3 fails:
4 -> Stop requesting devices

However, I am not aware of all consequences of this possibility. Most code
is not based in this scenario.

By the way, this is the part of code that I had to change

My previous solution doesn't work with three or more participants.
