LifeSize --> Jitsi

at the moment I am using a LifeSize-bridge and some other LifeSize-hardware videostations for a conference
Now I created a Jitsi-Meet server, but I can’t connect with this LifeSize-hardware-videostations to this Jitsi-server. Is there a software necessary (if yes, which) or what should I do to make this work?


We had done that, but setting it up is not like running jus apt-get install command, it is complicated process.

thx first :wink:

and how does/should this finally work? I mean if I open with jitsi meet the room “hostname/test123”… how can I connect with my lifesize (lifesize room 200) this conference? What IP/URL should i call?

So there is an invite option in the UI (the plus in bottom right corner), if you start typing there the name of the room you will get the room and when choosing it, its id, which will be the sip address will come to jibri and jibri will use the pjsua client to call it using sip.

for jibri… is there a dns entry necessary (for jitsi meet or jibri)?
Bcs always when I try to start a recording I get an error "Recordingunvailable - Oops! The Recording service is currently unvailable. We’re working on resolve the issue. Please try again later.
Or what could be the problem?


Maybe jicofo does not see any reocrders. Check jibri and jicofo logs.

Is there something false?


No, I don’t see anything for the moment

But logs describe the situation, more than looking at the config …

jicofo.log (27.2 KB)

my jibri logfolder is empty

Is your jibri running? You uploaded a log snippet, which doesn’t say much. You need to check the log file from starting jicofo, do you see that it detects a jibri. But as you say jibri has no logs, I suppose it is not running for some reason, and neither jicofo and neither you can use it. Check why jibri is not running.

but jicofo doesn’t detect a jibri…
I also installed jibri again… but without successs…

jibri-logs are still empty

What is the java version you use to run it? Make sure it is java8.

root@jibri:/var/log/jitsi/jibri# java -version
java version “1.8.0_201”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_201-b09)

any other tipps???

I just tried guessing from the part of the logs that you had shown. Find and paste the whole jibri log file, so we can see the error from the beginning.

my logging properties:

but my /var/log/jitsi/jibri folder is empty…

where should the log file be?

Try using journalctl -u jibri to extract it.
