Hello Michael,

It is very likely an issue on your end.

That said, by now I am used to deal the most common quirks of Jitsi on 
the client's end (and some of the server end as well, but that's another 

If you experience issues next time, please send me a private message, an 
e-mail to alberto at abrao.net, or just a text message to - or call - 
204-558-6886. I am always curious to have more info on my book of 
troubleshooting for Jitsi, so I will be happy to work with you on this!

Kind regards,
Alberto Abrao
