Terminal sharing: Known issues and limitations

This article describes known issues and limitations within the terminal session sharing functionality.

Rendering issues and artifacts

One of the known limitations of the shared terminal sessions is caused by the use of the WebRTC data connection based on the UDP peer-to-peer connection. When the network is unstable or the terminal generates a lot of output (e.g. due to ls -R /), or when the terminal is being frequently updated (e.g. by htop), a viewer may see that the output is incomplete or that a character appears at an incorrect position.

The solution is to reconnect to the shared terminal by closing the tab and following the shared terminal link again.

Terminal Size issues

Another current limitation is the absence of synchronization between the size of viewers' terminal and the size of the streamer's terminal. Because of that the viewers' screen may look different from the streamer's screen.

The solution is to adjust the size of the terminal, making it the same as the size of the streamer's terminal.
