[Linux] Screen share selection on dual monitors - only "entire screen" option available
[Steps:] 1. Have dual monitors and open FF. 2. Open https://jsfiddle.net/pehrsons/7kgvL48e/ ,select Video/Screen and press Start. 3. An identity panel pop-up will be shown to select the screen to share(record). 4. Select Entire screen and "Allow". [Actual Result:] 3. The options Screen 1 / Screen 2 is missing, being replaced by "Entire screen" 4. The recording will capture and record both screens in a 3840x1080 resolution. [Note1:] Please see upstream bug: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=437507.
jib, is this something you know of? Maybe somewhere to dupe this one?
Priority: -- → P3
Looks like an upstream issue. Unfortunately, the upstream issue was closed as WontFix for what seems like poor reasons, judging by the subsequent activity. Maybe we should file a new bug? Dan, any thoughts?

Someone filed a new bug back in 2016 as https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=660032 which doesn't seem to have been prioritized yet. If we want this fixed, I'm guessing the best bet would be to do the work ourselves and upstream it. Looking at the code it seems like the relevant functions (ScreenCapturerLinux::GetSourceList and ScreenCapturerLinux::SelectSource) are just not implemented. I'm not sure offhand how much work would be involved in writing these, but I'd be willing to take a look when I have a chance, assuming we're happy with this being a P3.
I'm not sure if it's related to this bug, but I also can't select a single window to share. Only the entire desktop is offered in the dropdown. Browser: Firefox 58 OS: Debian buster (testing) Architecture: amd64 Desktop: Plasma5/Xorg Package: firefox-58.0.1-1+b1 from the Debian repos
