I’ve recently upgraded my environment from the 5390-stable to the latest stable and I’ve noticed some changes regarding the screen share, especially screen sharing from browser tab.
In the 5390 version, when a video was screen shared through the browser tab, the mic could be muted and still, the other participants could hear the audio from the video. With the mic muted, the other participants would hear only the audio from the video, not the audio from the participant who was screen sharing.
In the latest version, all of the above can still be done, only if the participant who is going to screen share, starts the conference audio muted. The moment the mic is turned on, it needs to be left turned on for the other participants to hear the audio from the video. But they also hear the audio from the participant who is screen sharing, and if he is in a noisy place, that could pose a problem.
The ugly workaround is to refresh page, in which the participants all start audio and video muted and then start screen sharing. Every time the participant wants to screen share.
So my question is: is there a misconfiguration on my end or in this new version, the browser tab screen sharing really changed?
