Windows 7 screen sharing issues


We are configuring jitsi for multiple OS, somes are using Windows 7 and when using screen sharing while selecting an app we have the following behavior :

  • We can see the app on the remote computers but the presenter’s disappear
  • fullscreen powerpoint are seen as black screen for remote users.

Did you have any issues with that ?

Thanks in advance.


An update because there is a big issue on it.

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by that?
We just pushed a new feature in the latest unstable packages where screensharing and video of participant can be seen at the same time, you can test it on, is this what you are referring to?

There is nothing we can do about this, it is a browser limitation.

Thank you damencho for your answers.

I might take screen shot for the first question.

What I was meaning is when sharing an application like powerpoint or other but not fullscreen on Windows 7. The full Window of the application disappear and you have to mouse the mouse and try to click @ the position of menus to take it back (like if it was crashing).
To go back to normal we only need to stop screensharing from jitsi.

As I said it is only on Windows 7.



Up the post again, if someone has the same issue would be great.
