Instruction for installing Jidesha?

Posted October 17, 2016 3.8k views

I am hosting on my own server but not Jitsi, and is using Jitsi for the video chat.
So in my case, if I am using Jitsi’s server for the video chat through, do i still need to install Jidesha in order for my users to use screen share ? I do get the error message: failed to install desktop extension.

If so, is there a tutorial or instruction in terms of how to get Jidesha up running? there is nothing in Github.

It is quite simple -

  • Clone the repo
  • Replace the image files with your branding
  • Tweak manifest.json (‘name’, 'description’, 'version’ and change 'matches’ to reflect your details)
  • Use the documentation here to create the .crx file.

Note: Because of Chromium’s (and Chrome’s) security you still need to manually install the extension or work on getting it added to the Chrome Store (which we haven’t done).
