How can i change favicon.ico in JITSI?

Customising jitsi is one of the first things that people do post deployment. There are many different aspects of customisation to jitsi , starting from UI customisation to feature/functionality customisation.

Amongst all this , the smallest customisation that is often overlooked is the favicon. So how do we change the favicon in a jitsi frontend?

  1. locate the favicon at /usr/share/jitsi-meet/images
  2. Replace the favicon.ico, in directory with a new favicon
  3. Clear browser cache and reload to verify that favicon has been updated. (Note : Changing favicon does not require a restart of the jitsi system)

You can also change the favicon by replacing providing a URL of the new favicon in the header

<link rel="icon" href="" />
