Hi, I’ve only just started using Jitsi to replace the Google Hangouts feature which stopped at the beginning of August.
It looks ideal, but I have a couple of problems. One is that I don’t have a great internet connection, so I guess that is causing my image to appear blurry to participants in the session and occasionally they get a message saying that I’m having connection issues - though I don’t see that myself, and my image looks really clear on my laptop.
The other issue is with the live streaming. I’ve got it set up and I get the Stream Key and put it in the Live Streaming BETA option in the menu in Jitsi, and that works fine. However, I run an online session where participants in a course can drop in with questions then leave again. It looked to me like I could start the live streaming when someone comes in, then turn it off when they leave and there is no one with me, then restart it again when someone else comes in.
When I tried it, it all looked fine in Jitsi. The ‘Live’ indicator came on and I thought it was working, however when I viewed the video later, only the first live stream was recorded. When I tested it again, I can see that YouTube says I’m live and the ‘stream health’ is good, but in another place below it’s off - ‘Live stream offline’
Is it not possible to do this? I was ecstatic when I found this feature as it would be so useful, so very disappointed when it doesn’t seem to work.
Thanks for any help or suggestions!
