I am working on a video conferencing application based on Jitsi Meet and I have a peculiar case when a local participant joins an existing conference without allowing the access to microphone and camera (via the Chrome popup notification), I have been experiencing cases where the local participant (the one who disallowed access) is unable to hear remote participant’s audio even though the remote participant’s audio is clearly working and heard by other remote participants.
Steps to reproduce the error:
- Start a new meeting in Jitsi: e.g. https://meet.jit.si/micproblem/
- Join the meeting room in a new incognito window and deny the access to microphone and camera
- When remote participant speaks, sound is not heard.
Newly joined participant denying permission access results in audio/video error
Newly joined user’s settings dialog box shows permission not granted error for audio output
Console window shows failed to access local tracks error
What I would like is that a local participant is able to hear a remote participant’s audio irrespective of whether or not he grants access to his/her microphone.
