Not sure whether this is right place to post about perceived issues with BBB.
Since the growth of interest in meet.coop and BBB, I’ve been involved in a number of calls using BBB, on the demo.meet.coop server and on two others.
On every call we have encountered unexpected audio issues:
- A couple of people unable to get their mic and/or speaker working as they would expect.
- One person joined a call yesterday, and while the sound that others on the call heard when this person was speaking was fine, the quality of this sound quickly degraded over a minute or two to a noise where their voice was almost inaudible. They didn’t hear this, and to them everything seemed fine. When the issue was pointed out to them they disconnnected and then reconnected to the call. Again, the sound from them was fine initially, but quickly degraded. We ended up switching the call to Zoom, where we noted no problems with this pserson, depsite no changes to their local set-up.
- On a call this morning on the newly built demo.meet.coop server with Webarchitects, another user reported that my normal audio set-up (which works well on Zoom and Gogogle Meet, for example) was causing annoying feedback for them, which stopped as soon as I disabled my mic. I ended up having to plug in a USB mic/headest which resolved the issue.
Altogether less than ideal. I don’t have insight into the cause of these issues, but wanted to flag them up as a supporter of the project, as this type of thing is hugely irritating to users and impacts poorly on user experience and perception of the quality of the service.
