Description Yauhen Shulitski 2024-01-26 13:58:36 UTC

Videochat WebRTC solutions like Google Meet don't work in the latest Firefox 122 build from fedora. It does work if I just download tar.gz file from the official firefox website (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/download/thanks/).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Google meet meeting with camera enabled
Actual Results:  
No one in the meeting can see or hear you 

Expected Results:  
Your videocamera stream is visible for all participants

Reproducible on Firefox 122.0-1.fc39

Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2024-01-26 14:35:19 UTC
Can you try to attend the meeting with new profile?

Can you also try another WebRTC page?

Also can you try to run Firefox under X11? Run on terminal with MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=0 env variable like:

Hi Martin,

getUserMedia call works locally for me without problem. I also tried different WebRTC solutions and it is the same problem - I can see the video preview, but no one can see my video. I tried running it with 
`MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=0 firefox` no luck, also tried it in the new profile - no luck.

Comment 3 Florian Weimer 2024-01-26 15:28:52 UTC
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1875201 suggests it's due to --with-system-libvpx, which we use in Fedora builds.

Comment 4 Frédéric Bérat 2024-01-30 12:04:24 UTC
Since I face the same problem, I tried everything suggested here without success.

I can confirm that the flatpak works without troubles.

I'm currently using the following workaround, even though I don't like changing `about:config` stuff:
