BigBlueButton do not start meeting


After update of BigBlueButton can't get it working on slackware.
It loading modules, but do not enter meeting correctly. No audio, no windows from meeting.
I tried firefox, chrome. Try reinstall slackware from current. The problem still exists.

But people report that it works on ubuntu 14.04

It can be tested on demo page https://demo.bigbluebutton.org/b

Welcome to LQ

Do you want it to be client or host? What went wrong? Where's the exact error?

BigBlueButton use Java. Ensure you have some JDK or JRE installed, I guess you missed it. Look in the AlienBOB's smithy and chose something.

http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/peo...uilds/openjdk/
http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/peo...ilds/openjdk7/

You need to install either JRE or JDK, but not both, also chose one the versions.

I use only client to BBB. So, I do not see any errors. BBB just stop loading and do not enter meeting.
See screenshot attached.

No, BBB use java only for desktop sharing.

The previouse version of BBB (1.1 I think) was worked fine. Something happend with current version and it seems it is special to slackware distribution. I have 3 PCs with slackware current installed at different timestamp last year. All have the same symptoms.

I think firefox's script blocking got more paranoid.
Maybe you ought to allow that particular site.

I think this is not firefox problem, I tried chromium too - the same problem.

Now, I tried install ubuntu 16.04.3 with firefox inside VirtualBox, and BBB works.

BUT, it works in Slackware 14.2, which is the latest stable release ?

The Slackware-current is the very development tree of Slackware, not a kind of rolling release.

So, you should use -current only for playing with, assuming yourself the role for beta-tester, then when you find a bug, to report back to the Slackware Team.

Definitively, using the -current for corporate things is not something which would be recommended.

Come on!

BBB from client side is just a browser thing, depending in JAVA

Try this way: 14.2 with the Mozila shipped browser. There is a script to repack it...

Try every browser, going back step by step.

TO ALL HANDS ON DECK! Who know where's @ruario script to repack Firefox?

I think you got it wrong: I installed a version of jdk with the mozilla plugin and BBB works fine, I tested it using seamonkey (because I'm using noscript in firefox and BBB doesn't like it).
before installing the java plugin I had the exact same situation of your screenshot (stuck at "loading").

it might be because there you have enabled the java plugin: you can check it entering "about:plugins" in firefox's location bar.
