Anyone had luck getting the recording/streaming component of Jitsi working? I installed jisti from the marketplace (seems to use GitHub - jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet: Jitsi Meet on Docker) and that works pretty slick. There is a jibri.yml waiting for you to use if you ssh in and cd to
~/docker-jitsi-meet so following the instructions you can run this command to spin up jibri:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f jibri.yml up -d
The problem is this will fail after it pulls down the images it needs:
Starting docker-jitsi-meet_jibri_1 ... error ERROR: for docker-jitsi-meet_jibri_1 Cannot start service jibri: error gathering device information while adding custom device "/dev/snd": no such file or directory ERROR: for jibri Cannot start service jibri: error gathering device information while adding custom device "/dev/snd": no such file or directory ERROR: Encountered errors while bringing up the project.
It seems like this is because you need ALSA loopback support (
and the instructions they reference:
I think I got alsa installed with
yum install alsa-utils but it seems like
snd-aloop might require a different kernel or something. Once we get to kernel stuff my noodling around probably won’t get me very far.
Anyway, I just wanted to see if anyone else was interested in testing the recording / streaming component of Jitsi. I’d love to help get this working if its possible/reasonable!
My next idea would be to instead try and set up jibri just on an ubuntu vps, but in the limited testing I’ve done there I run into similar kernel issues.
