Jeremy, uncheck the microphone and camera buttons after selecting
'computer' and before selecting 'join'.

The right question here is: is it more important

the question is, should it also cost engineering
Idealism comes at a pretty high cost. The foundation in the past has
pretty reasonable choice in the past in that
they're willing to use
proprietary software for functions that aren't directly associated with
projects. The decision is often focused on
"if the community wanted to
the projects, would this proprietary software
we're using be a problem?".
In this case the answer would be no.
the old default (AFAIK) was Google Hangouts. which I guess is just as
closed source but maybe is less cost? note that I'm not saying that
sub-optimal cost or source availability or hosting options are
necessarily a reason to not use bluejeans. but I would at least like
to be aware of the answers to those questions.
OTOH, IMO, the (apparent) inability to use this service with stock
Chrome (on a chromebook, stable channel) without sharing my
webcam/microphone is a blocker. (which maybe we can get them to fix)
I suppose the service may work ok with a Chrome instance that itself
doesn't have access to the webcam/microphone hardware. But that's not
good enough. again, IMO.
