i’m back with a new problem and it’s a bit strange
So i’m hosting a Jitsi instance for my school, such the typical scenario is 1 video stream sent and then received by around 20 students and this in max. 8 conferences.
A few stats on my system:
Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS
Jitsi-videobridge 2.1-478 (on the same system)
16 GB RAM
1 Gbit/s network up and down
The problem started occurring after i updated from 1.0.4628 to 1.0.4900.
A few students reported that they were experiencing blackouts in the video streams with the message “Video for XYZ has been turned off to save bandwidth”.
I immediately switched back to the previous version and the problem was gone so i guess there were some changes made to the bandwidth estimation or allocation logic.
Sadly these changes prevent my students (with sufficient bandwidth at hand (checked with internal speed test to the same server)) from participating in those meetings.
Do you have any idea what could cause this behavior or even better a solution for it?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance and if you have any questions, please ask!
