Chromium doesn't work with Jitsy, I discovered. Why that should be the 
case for me is odd but it is what it is. I installed Chrome and found 
that Jitsy works fine both audio and video. Doesn't take much memory 
either and no latency issues. If someone wants to send me an invite and 
using chrome I could verify that.

Many thanks and stay safe!
