COTURN problem after update from 2.20 to 2.21

Hi,
my current project worked well with with standard configuration of OpenVidu 2.20. - with just a small change. I used my web-server (with OpenVidu application) with public IP and domain in front of the internet - and the OpenVidu with just a local IP. To achieve this, I did the following:

  • add my public domain as COTURN_IP to env file
  • use nginx on my public server to redirect API, websocket and COTURN requests to the OpenVidu server with local IP

All worked good - until the update to OpenVidu 2.21. - then the COTURN hangs on “incoming packet BINDING processed, success” and I can’t see any video.

COTRUNs Log (replace MY_PUBLIC_IP):

If I just switch back from “image: openvidu/openvidu-server:2.21.0” to “image: openvidu/openvidu-server:2.20.0” in the docker-compose.yml (keeping coturn 6.0.0 etc.), everything is working again.

What can cause this problem?

(Yes I know - I would now be able to install and configure an external COTURN on my public application server - but I really like the dynamic authentication system of the OpenVidu default solution and want to keep it!)

Hello @DiStefano8472

(Yes I know - I would now be able to install and configure an external COTURN on my public application server - but I really like the dynamic authentication system of the OpenVidu default solution and want to keep it!)

Don’t worry about this. We are allowing more flexible TURN/STUN configurations but we still support the coturn deployment which is deployed next to OpenVidu and dynamic authentication. And we don’t want to stop using it.

Regarding your issue, what makes you think that the issue is Coturn?

Did you upgrade following official instructions? I would try to use in COTURN_IP, instead of your domain name, your public IP, and check if it works.

Also, if you set COTURN_IP=auto-ipv4, the public IP is autodiscovered.
