Subscribe only works with camera permission granted.

Hi... I know this is a long shot, but I just wanted to see if anyone could help me. I'm still on 4.2.1, but I think the issue was happening before then.

This is how I do my subscribing on the javascript client: 

________

    async function subscribeTo(stream,options){
    makeCamBox(stream);
    if (typeof options == "undefined"){
        let videocodec = stream.settings.video.codec.name;
        options = {audio: false,video:{codecs:[{name:videocodec}]}}
    };
var subscription;
    try{
        subscription = await conference.subscribe(stream,options);
        subscription.streamId = stream.id; //stream id and subscription id are different, so we need this to know where it came from.
        subscription.origin = stream.origin;
        BC.subscriptions.push(subscription);
        subscription.addEventListener('ended', function(){console.log(subscription.id + ' (subscription) has ended.'); BC.tools.removeFromSubscriptions(subscription);})
        
    }
    catch(err){console.error('subscribe failed', err); //alert(err);
    //now remove the errored cambox still loading status..
    removeLoadingCamboxByStreamId(stream.id);

}
    showSubscribedStream(subscription);

}

_______

So basically, you pass it the stream you want to subscribe to, it makes a box for it to go with makeCamBox().
It all works 100% in firefox.

But with chrome, and safari (desktop, iOS and iPadOS), it will ONLY work if the site has already been granted permission to access the user's own webcam. The user's webcam doesn't need to be already opened or transmitted either, just with that granted previously. So clearly some sort of thing is going on with permissions, where camera permissions kind of elevates what is allowed.

The "subscription = await conference.subscribe(stream,options);" Never ever resolves or finishes or even gives any error in the logs at all. It just kind of hangs. But if the site has camera permissions, then it works PERFECTLY.

And the box from the makeCamBox() stays on the screen and is never removed with "removeLoadingCamboxByStreamId" because an error is never fired.

I'm not 100% sure if it's related to the problem but I think maybe the "dtlsState" is staying as "connecting" under chrome://webrtc-internals ??

___

It's not good for my site, because new users who join want to be able to receive streams before they ever give my site permission to access their webcam. And if they don't have a webcam plugged in at all, then there is no way at all to view incoming streams at all.

What might I be doing wrong? Any idea appreciated!

Here are the separate

Here are the separate websocket messages that occur client side when unable to subscribe to a new stream. They are all downstream messages unless i marked them as UPSTREAM.

And then the javascript console just shows this:

main.js:70 A new stream is added  161060986993090780
main.js:1031 The layout for mix stream '5cb31a8ac38a6317f5aaa638-common' has changed.
owt.js:9 Empty candidate.
owt.js:9 ICE connection state changed to checking
owt.js:9 Remote stream added.
owt.js:9 ICE connection state changed to connected

 

I hope that can help a bit 😕

again: works perfectly as long as the browser has been granted access to webcam. As soon as the webcam access has been granted, new subscriptions start working fine on the page without any refresh at all, and the old ones never get resolved.
