"HTML5" and "WebRTC".
As I said, I have never (knowingly) used the camera or microphone
on this computer, nor even the speaker/headphones. But I have
a few questions:
(1) Did you guys see me? I tried to join WLUG meeting last Thu.
I never got sound, but I saw some people I recognized, and
a picture of myself. I was the guy with the big head. It actually
looked bigger than it is, partly because of the firmware in the
standard laptop camera which uses AI to zoom in and magnify
any slight hint of receding hair, and partly because I was leaning
back in a comfy chair with the "Lap"top on my chest.
Yes we saw you. We also saw and replied to your text chat messages.
(2) Is the URL https://meet.jit.si/WlugMA
it work with Microsoft Windows? I am thinking that I could test
it out by connecting to WlugMA with my Linux computer while Diane
connects with her MS computer. Then we could debug by shouting across
the living room.
I don't know. You could always try creating your own meeting URL. It is free to use.
(3) Does HTML5 require DHCP to redirect or forward the
No. Your stream worked fine.
(4) Is there a standard codec or is that something
that must be
installed to match the whim of the website?
You said you saw us but didn't hear us. We saw you but didn't hear you. Then
after the meeting you found the volume control and turned it up which allowed other audio
applications to be heard. I'm guessing you have all the codecs you need already, and
you just needed to have raised the volume. The same Pulseaudio control panel should also
have a Microphone volume slider and/or mute button that you may need to turn up or
What Debian version are you running? What web browser and version?
