# Enable Screen Capture for Chromium/Chrome
## DIY
Do what official documentation says:
I suggest:
sudo apt install git
git clone
cd jidesha
What is missing after that is how to generate the crx. Let's go!
Requirements for debian 9 (src
sudo apt install rubygems-integration ruby ruby-dev
After that install the application that does the crx
sudo gem install crxmake
Assuming we are in the same directory (the git repository) we generate the pack extension with the chrome directory:
crxmake --pack-extension chrome
after that you will see in the same directory `chrome.crx`
drag it to your extensions in chrome/chromium and copy the `id`
In your jitsi server (replace with your domain) `/etc/jitsi/meet/` paste your `id`:
- desktopSharingChromeExtId: 'diibjkoicjeejcmhdnailmkgecihlobk',
+ desktopSharingChromeExtId: 'myidisherelalalalalalalalalalala',
## Optional additional step: facilitate DIY
You can put a message in the welcome page explaining how to install chrome/chromium extension:
+ &nbsp;
+ <p align="center" style="user-select: auto !important; -webkit-user-select: auto !important;">Si utilitzes Chromium/Chrome cal descarregar un plugin per compartir pantalla <a href="" target="_blank" style="user-select: auto !important; -webkit-user-select: auto !important;">aquí</a>. Després ves a <strong style="user-select: auto !important; -webkit-user-select: auto !important;">chrome://extensions</strong> i des d'allà arrastra el addon per instal·lar-lo</p>

<div id="react"></div>
<div id="keyboard-shortcuts" class="keyboard-shortcuts" style="display:none;">

+ <p align="center" style="user-select: auto !important; -webkit-user-select: auto !important;">If you use Chromium/Chrome you have to download a plugin to share your screen <a href="" target="_blank" style="user-select: auto !important; -webkit-user-select: auto !important;">here</a>. After that go to <strong style="user-select: auto !important; -webkit-user-select: auto !important;">chrome://extensions</strong> and drag there the addon to install it</p>

<div id="react"></div>
<div id="keyboard-shortcuts" class="keyboard-shortcuts" style="display:none;">
## Optional additional step: going official
If you want facilitate plugin installation (as you may see in you have to do the following:
- get developer account
- pay 5$ (one time payment) - but you can register limited (20) number of applications in store -> src
- Verify that this is an official item for a website you own (add new, select), scp html that gives google to /usr/share/jitsi-meet (remember to use https, and set https as the url, redirection won't work)
- ~~check `inline install` -> src info about inline install -> inline installation is not supported anymore ->
- Verify that this is an official item for a website you own -> src
- put `visibility options` as `unlisted`
[Since chrome/chromium 72 extension is not needed anymore.]( So it should work out of the box :)
