Until someone can confirm whether recording is still working for them, can you tell us how much free space you have in your dropbox account? (as the only think I can think which would stop the file appearing if Jitsi was able to create the folder, is storage space).
This happens when all the available recorders are being used. I just tried now on meet.jit.si and recording works just fine. Try now yourself to confirm everything works fine.
My frank suggestion if recording these meetings is crucial to you would be to consider a JaaS subscription (https://jaas.8x8.vc) to ensure you’re able to record when you need to. Because traffic to the public site is unpredictable, it’s impossible to tell whether or not you’ll have recorders available at the specific time of your meeting.
I agree with Freddie, it is nice that meet.jit.si is offered free for people to try out Jitsi (as resources and load permit), but one should not depend on such offerings for important or commercial events.
I didn’t realize that the recording service was limited in the public server. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
I see that the the JaaS price for recording is $0.06/minute. Since this is for club meetings that can no longer take place physically because of Covid, I will see if the others accept that expense or not… I don’t see why they would oppose.
Anyway, thank you both for the clarifications and help!
