Jitsi VideoBridge errors and no changes made to server

Ok I have a working jitsi videobridge up and working (or I should say had). Last week it wigged out we removed it and re installed it and everything was fine worked great.

Now a Week later it wiggs out and I un install it and re install it and it nopes out. It gives this error on a videobridge connection:

org.jivesoftware.openfire.http.HttpBindServlet - Client provided invalid session: 9b6a6d74.

This is Openfire 3.9.3 and jitsi videobridge 1.3.1 . Also noticed it has search plugin with no plus sign but you can not remove it either and it is spitting errors up about that too.

org.jivesoftware.openfire.container.PluginClassLoader - Failed to cache plugin JAR file: jar:file:/opt/openfire/plugins/search/lib/plugin-search-jspc.jar!/

Now I have done some testing, we had audio before witht the bridge and no video. After A complete re -install I am getting the same just audio no video on the bridge.

At a loss here since nothing changed and all of the sudden it is broken and will not work.

Yes, similar problems yesterday, using stable 3.9.3 Openfire and 1.3.1 JVB. Could not get anything to work.

Not sure what server you are using, but on debian 7 (should be same with ubuntu) I got it working with Nightly 3.10 Openfire: Project summary - Atlassian Bamboo and the plugin from there too.

You must “apt-get -y install openjdk-7-jre” rather than the openjdk-6 default Java package first. I much prefer the reduced bloat of “openjdk-6/7-jre-headless” package and it worked for 3.9.3 but will not on Nightly.

Some problems were to do with /etc/hosts - you have to have a line with your main IP address and a host name (“12.34.56.78 hostname.example.lan hostname”), rather than use localhost I believe. I can then access without using host name and just the ip address.

So basically, once debian 7 is installed:

apt-get -y install openjdk-7-jre

wget -O openfire.deb http://bamboo.igniterealtime.org/browse/OPENFIRE-NIGHTLYDEB/latestSuccessful/art ifact/shared/Project-Debian-distribution-files/openfire_3.10.0_all.deb

dpkg --install openfire.deb

http://xx.xx.xx.xx:9090 and set up

cd /var/lib/openfire/plugins

wget http://bamboo.igniterealtime.org/browse/OPENFIRE-NIGHTLYPLUGINS/latestSuccessful /artifact/shared/Project-Plugins/jitsivideobridge.jar

/etc/init.d/openfire restart

Create Room, Users - Leave room permissions open

https://xx.xx.xx.xx:7443/jitsi/apps/ofmeet

Make sure 7443 at least is open on firewall. I had no joy changing to standard 443 on the control panel for http-bind settings - just errors.

But you can put an “index.html” file in /usr/share/openfire/resources/spank/ to give a sshort “sane” URL redirected say straight to ofmeet… See the forum.

It seems to be working fine. With a specified 360 video resolution there is however an offset in the browser video display.

This is a great improvement for office purposes on the open public Jitsi. Dela has put a lot of work in which I really appreciate. You can put a user/password entry gate for example. But if you want a simple public option there is also an easy debian install on the Jitsi Meet website - it only works on Ubuntu 14.04.1 though, not debian (libc or something is too out of date).

We are using centos 6 on the server. IT is not mine, it is an associates that is letting us use it for webrtc. We were running ours at 720 video resolution and had 4 seperate convo’s running with 0 issues till this happened. Just stopped all video and all we got was audio.

The strange part was it worked great for us then we shutdown and came back 7 days later and boom. Didn’t want to work. I installed oracle java thinking that was the issue. It is version 7. I will try what you have posted and apply it to what we have with Centos 6. I will let ya know.

I keep getting this no matter what I do :

2014.11.06 06:00:22 org.jivesoftware.openfire.http.HttpBindServlet - Client provided invalid session: c6961813.

Every client gets this so it never validates or connects the bridge.

Ok here is part of the debug log:

this is getting really frustrating since it was working then it just quit working and now no matter what I do it will not work.

Ok all fixed with swapping version of java and fresh install…
