Does anyone know why WebRTC is such crap under Firefox\? I have to use a Chromium based browser to use Jitsi.

@art Guessing you checked the usual suspects such as DNS over http and extensions that are running amok?

@art

My dad's at Cisco and he tells me something across the lines of "WebRTC is pretty clean. Well it *was*, but then we got clients"

Something like that, anyway.

@art Maybe because Google effectively detains the almost only modern implementation of WebRTC and that they don't do it in a open-source development model but in a shared-source model?

@art #firefox have had a very early webRTC implementation and numerous bugs have been fixed lately. I was my impression that most functions work by now.
I still have some issues regarding screen share, but that is the same on Chromium. Sadly I have to use RealChromeBrowser to have a reliable setup capable of sharing my screen.
I you are interested there are a lot of (mostly historical) information on Jitsi bugtrack

@art I only have Firefox installed and use jitsi and Big Blue Button all the time

I do run into occasional issues, but same goes for proprietary video conferencing on the work laptop

running debian or Ubuntu everywhere

I do use uMatrix, so maybe I'm blocking analytics or other JS that causes issues

@art which Version oft FF is that. Thought WebRTC issues in FF Werke solved like half a year ago. Have they returned or haven't you updated since a while?
