Screen sharing extension is not needed anymore?


#1

Hello,

I tried to share my screen on https://meet.jit.si and the desktop sharing popup showed without asking for the extension installation. Jitsi-Meet doesn’t require the extension on chrome anymore ?

I use Google Chrome Version 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)

It is not meet.jit.si it is that chrome implemented the getDisplayMedia a way to screen share by the spec without the need of an extension and the latest stable release have this change already, so whenever that is detected it uses that method, if it is an older chrome or without this enabled an extension is required.

That’s great, because it was challenging to deal with the screen sharing extension.
Thanks for the prompt reply
