Description

I can't share any windows running with Wayland or the whole screen when I started a session on meet.jit.si. I'm running on sway (i3 alternative running Wayland only). I can select XWayland windows and sharing of those works.

Current behavior

I can only share XWayland windows.

Expected Behavior

I would like to share all windows also those running on Wayland

Possible Solution


Steps to reproduce


Environment details

Running latest Manjaro with 5.5.8 kernel on Sway

Is your browser running under Wayland or XWayland? If it's the latter, there's no chance the browser will be able to capture the screen from Wayland windows.

I can confirm this. Running Sway on Arch Linux, I can't share wayland-native applications from 1. firefox (wayland-enabled), 2. jitsi-meet-desktop (as far as I can tell running wayland-natively). When trying to share the entire screen I get a black screen only. Trying to share fx Firefox or Audacity (both wayland-native) doesn't work. Changing desktop to i3 solves the problem, but I'd rather not do that...

Browser (Firefox) is running on Wayland. The same behaviour (also with black screen) is present with the application Slack.

@ibauersachs I think it would be better to move the issue to the correct repo instead of closing it.

Done. I didn't notice this is possible now...

I have shared my screen successfully using meet.jet.si and latest firefox on Fedora 32. It uses xda-desktop-portal (which uses pipewire) for sceencapturing, and I'm not sure sway supports that yet (even though I have seen some activity around that lately).
So my guess is that this is more of an issue with sway, than with jitsi.

Closing since there is nothing we can do from the Jitsi Meet side. The browser must have support for this.
