Two thumbnails for shared youtube video

Hi @damencho ,

On sharing a youtube video I am receiving two thumbnails for that shared video.

Please do not tag people in your requests for help unless they’re already helping you with the specific issue at hand.

Per your report, is this on or on your private server?

Ok, Freddie, It comes on my private server.

Are you able to reproduce this on
I don’t think I quite understand what you’re reporting, looking at the screenshot you shared. Can you explain a bit more?

No on it is working fine. but when I downloaded “stable/jitsi-meet_7439” and run it in my local environment then it shows two thumbnails on sharing the youtube video.

Did you actually do an installation of Jitsi Meet? If so, what guide did you use?

Hi @Freddie

I followed this guide to install jitsi meet in my system.
Self-Hosting Guide - Debian/Ubuntu server | Jitsi Meet.

what I observed, _renderFakeParticipant() method is executing two times.Can you please explain me why this happens.
File path : (jitsi-meet/react/features/filmstrip/components/web/Thumbnail.js)

render() {
const { _participant, _isVirtualScreenshareParticipant } = this.props;
if (!_participant) {
return null;
const { isFakeParticipant, local } = _participant;
if (local) {
return this._renderParticipant(true);
if (isFakeParticipant) {
return this._renderFakeParticipant();

In "_participant " object I am getting two instances of fake participants.

Did you do any customizations?

customizations in which module?? No I did not make any changes in the code. Yes I made some changes in orignal config.js and interface-config.js to run it in my localhost.

What changes did you make? Something is clearly wrong in your setup as the issue you’re reporting is unique to your environment.

Also, are your running this on https?
