Problem in starting jitsi-videobridge.


Hello Developers,

I have just started using jitsi, and I was trying to install and configure Jitsi-Meet on ubuntu 16.04 using

the instructions at

But I keep getting an error while trying to start the videobridge using

the following command.

./ --host=localhost --domain=localhost --port=5347 --secret=


However, I do always get the following error again and again:

#starting error

JVB 2018-10-10 20:50:00.624 INFO: [1] util.NetworkUtils.().118

SLF4J: Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings.

At the end of terminal output it always shows this and it repeats:

when i restart prosody with the following command.

sudo prosodyctl restart

It says, prosody is already running with PID ****

Also in /etc/init.d/ i am unable to find jitsi-videobridge but i have prosody in it( /etc/init.d/prosody).

Mentioning this, in case it has to do something with this.

Also, when i start jicofo it shows this in the prosody log file.

I have also referred and I have been trying to figure out the problem and haven’t had any luck with it. Please let me know what changes should I do. And in which files ?

I hope for a positive response soon.



So your jicofo and deployment are where your jvb is using domain localhost, this doesn’t look right.

Why are you using the manual install steps, instead of the quick install one? The manual install you will face many problems which are already solved by the debian install scripts.


Hello sir, I have also tried quick install step by step from this video.[]. I am setting jitsi video bridge on Ubuntu 16.04.

By quick install, I am facing this problem after running this command:

sudo /usr/share/jitsi-meet/scripts/

In order to use let’s encrypt certificates your domain needs to have a valid dns entry.


Can you elaborate it please ? Like how can I have a valid Dns entry ?


You need to go and buy a domain and configure in its provider’s console the A record to point to your public ipv4 address where you are hosting your deployment.
