Hello Dele,

Thank you too for the hard work you are doing for Openfire community.

i only become an grey screen when i access with my jid. Have anybody an idear?


Thank you for the installation guide. It is very well written.

I have queries.

While I was configuring, I didn’t find any config.js file under /ofmeet/js folder, so I couldn’t complete step 10. Could you please let me know, how could I resolve this issue?

I am using openfire 3.9.1 and jitsi videobridge 1.3.

Second, I completed rest of steps except the step 10. Now, When I open the link https://my_server_address:7443/jitsi/apps/ofmeet it always ask for username and password. How can I get rid of that.

Finally, When I share the video conferencing link to other person, we can’t see each other and even we can’t hear each other, BUT we can Communicate through chat. Is it due to some port open issue in firewall? FYI, I have configured the openfire in a Linux VM hosted in Azure platform.

I am a beginner in these, so I am asking too much questions. Thank you for your consideration.



I am running openfire 3.9.3 and jitsi videobridge plugin 1.3.1. The file config.js file in /opt/openfire/plugins/jitsivideobridge/apps/ofmeet/js/ does not exist. Is this located somewhere else with the new version of jitsi videobridge? I am experiencing the exact same issues as Md. Mesbahul Islam in the post above. When I am video conferencing via ofmeet, none of the participants can see each other, nor can we hear each other, but the chat works.

It does not use config.js anymore. See the openfire admin web page to configure
