Thanks @damencho :relaxed:,
After updating with mentioned changes Recording started working (Both Audio and Video)
For info of jicofo and jibri version:

What if jitsi and jibri are on the same vm or server?


Configures Jibri recording setup in separate instance . I have followed this tutorial for configuration.

systemctl enable –now jibri
Failed to enable unit: Unit file \xe2\x80\x93now.service does not exist.

Sharing the log file details, please check.

  • Could you watch the resource utilisation (especially RAM) while recording

  • Be sure the default is java8

  • chromium from the official distro repo may be more stable than chrome. Its configuration is a bit different

Will check memory usage.

Using java 8 as default

chromium from the official distro repo may be more stable than chrome . Its configuration is a bit different: i didn’t understand this part.

jibri uses a chrome instance while recording or streaming. chrome is mostly installed from the chrome repo because most guide suggests this. But sometimes chrome may behave differently depending on the current version.

Ok, as per log file is there any issue in chrome instance.

Thank you.

Does you folder have the right permissions?
I mean can jibri write files there?

Hi @damencho, @saghul, I am facing the same issue when trying to record using multiple jibri inside docker container. Please refer below error in ffmpeg.0.txt

I have set up Alsa loopback device using the guide in
Also I have done loop back interface based the suggestion given by you. Please let me know how can I resolve. Also please be noted I can be able to record in a signle jibri. Only multiple Jibri at the same time is not working.

Hi @saghul
I did the setup of Jibri in an AWS Ubuntu 18.04 server. Did the work after adding your config file and it worked accurately. My issue is, in that instance, I entered an AMI. But it occurs an FFmpeg error in the AMI added Jibri. Have you got any ideas on this matter?

After executing this command (modprobe snd-aloop) I will get this output:-

Switch the standard Linux kernel. If it’s Ubuntu, IIRC it’s needed an extra kernel package too. Solved on the old posts

@emrah Could you please guide me to how to resolve that problem?

search for snd_aloop on Ubuntu

Do you mean execute this command on ubuntu terminal ? @emrah

Result is empty @emrah
Please have a look

I mean this is a frequently replied issue. You can find the solution on the old topics

Hi @emrah
Thank you very much. I 'll have a look.

Hi @emrah
I loaded a snd_aloop module for the first time, according to what was told by Sagul. Now I can’t load that. The reason is, I’ve entered an AWS AMI. The Jibri also stopped working after creating the AMI. Thank you
