Rendezvous Screen Sharing with Chrome


Having some trouble using Rendezvous screen sharing with Chrome on the Mac, specifically, it just doesn't work.

I tried both the shipping version of Chrome (79) and the beta of 80 since I know 80 has some important fixes related to this stuff. This is on macOS Catalina 10.15.3.

Video from the camera works great again with v80 but screen sharing does not work.

When I pick screen sharing from the drop down, I am correctly asked what screen I want to share. Then, I choose my main display and the small tear-off window appears at the bottom of the screen saying that 'rendezvous.telestream.net is sharing your screen' but no screen is sent to Wirecast, it freezes on the last from from the camera before I switched inputs.

Also, there's a red bar saying 'Please allow Rendezvous to access your camera and microphone' across the top. There's no button to take action there. If I click on the camera icon in the address bar, it tells me that I have allowed camera and mic access for this site.

If I look again at the input selector, it's moved off of 'Screen Sharing' by itself, to the next input in the list.

I have the Rendezvous Screen Sharing extension installed, v1.0.1.

Has anyone else seen this?
