"It works by launching a Chrome instance rendered in a virtual framebuffer and capturing and encoding the output with ffmpeg."

What hellish thing did I just read? 😲

@rugk Oh that's how recording in Jitsi works, right? Really messed up IMHO.

@rugk I recently read it too. What a mess.

I think that was the first time I was glad about the existence of docker, therefore enabling one to install this bunch of chaos in something rather self-contained and not having to mess around with the ugly details too much...

@phel @rugk I used often, they use zhe same thing (notification window is the same).

@rugk Is it trying to bypass DRM or some such?

@rugk does the "it's not stupid if it works rule apply here?" 🤔
