Start live Stream visible for non moderators

Hi folks I have everything working as i want with the exception of a couple of things.

  • the option to ‘start live stream’ is visible to non moderators and I don’t understand what i need to do to disable that. I only want moderator to be able to see the menu item and documentation indicates that should be the case, but it isn’t. (See screen shot of ui for a guest log in attached)59

  • I would similarly like to only allow moderators to be able to share Youtube videos - how do i configure for that?

  • when i show a youtube video, if i am a moderator and have ‘follow me’ then jibri streams it fine, but other participants can’t see the youtube video? Is that expected?

  • finally, during a Youtube video is it possible to leave the audio of other participants running so they can comment in a way that audiences on the jibri encoded stream can hear their comments while the youtube audio is also playing?

Thanks in advance for all / any feedback!

You can change this here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/011972872ebee8c30465dfedcea5584e7ee37c2f/react/features/recording/components/LiveStream/web/LiveStreamButton.js#L89
You can check how recording button is checking that:
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/62e7fd7e8e004972ff707f664e7997abee84a29a/react/features/recording/components/Recording/AbstractRecordButton.js#L124

Same as above: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/6bc1d87753949820169d893c4ede06d7f4cfc0cc/react/features/toolbox/components/web/Toolbox.js#L985

This is not expected, there should be no difference between jibri and normal users.

This is was made on purpose, cause if a participant with speakers unmutes there will be multiple inputs of the video to all the participants one local and one remote with little delay. And if the unmuted participant is more than one, it is even worse.
We had tried it and we needed to add the automuting to make it usable.

@damencho - Thanks so much for the feedback.

I have been unable to recreate problem #3 (the ‘follow me’ youtube video one) so that may have been a mistake or a one off. Assume that was my mistake.

Regarding #4 - that is understood - thankyou for clarity.

Regarding #1 and #2 - i think I am being really stupid :slight_smile: !- I simply cannot find the files you reference on Github on my server installation. I can see more or less what i need to do but the subfolder ‘react’ doesn’t exist in my /usr/share/jitsi-meet/… folder…? Indeed i have searched the whole system for it and nothing…? I have to assume i am confused - where should i be looking? (sorry for the n00b question!)

Those are source code files. To change you need to checkout project from github, modify files, build (following instructions in README) and then use the built version (the easiest is to replace folders /usr/share/jitsi-meet with the checked out and already built folder).

Doh - of course: ‘build’ :slight_smile: was looking for static files!! Thanks chief - Ill give that a go.
