After installing Jitsi Meet on a Debian 10 server, I can create a new conf using a browser pointing to jitsi.myserver.com . I see the welcome page, then I enter a name or use a random one, then I am in a conf room. It asks authorization to use the camera and microphone, I accept.
But now, the microphone and camera icons are crossed and I can’t activate either of them. The permissions appear to be ok for the browser (tested with Firefox and Chrome). If I click on the microphone icon I can see the input volume move when I speak, and the speakers test works, I hear a ringing tone.If I click on the camera icon I can see a preview of my camera, with my face, it seems to work. But it stays disabled in the conf room, which stays black.
Furthermore, if I connect from another computer to the same room (I think, at least I used the same URL as given when clicking on “Invite more people” ), it seems to open a new room : “you are the only one in the meeting”, and same in the original room.
The only log that I can see change is /var/log/jitsi/jvb.log
Even when no room is supposedly opened, every 10 seconds I see:
2020-10-26 13:48:55.531 INFO:  Videobridge.createConference#260: create_conf, id=b60a2cc3137c29f4 gid=-1 logging=false 2020-10-26 13:48:55.537 INFO:  HealthChecker.run#169: Performed a successful health check in PT0.005625S. Sticky failure: false
The create_conf id is each time different. I checked via netstat, there is no other connection but mine on this server.
This is a bit strange, I’m not sure how to investigate this. Any help would be appreciated.
