Cannot start Jitsi videocall in livechat room Rocketchat > 6.6


I have been using the rocketchat server since version 5 over 4 months ago and have Jitsi set up as a provider for video calls, which I use when a contact joins via livechat. Everything was fine until I installed version 6.6.0 where I started having problems because when starting the video call in a new room (from livechat) rocketchat freezes. This happened again in the new version 6.6.1 and couldn’t find the problem. To solve it I had to downgrade to version 6.5.3. As information, I have the Jitsi application in the latest version available. Can you help me diagnose or does anyone else get this problem? In any other room, as a direct message or channel, it doesn’t happen to me, the video call starts fine in a new browser window. Thank you

I think i have the same issue though I can start calls in new/empty rooms.

I am not 100% sure it is linked to Jitsi but if i try to enter a room where there were historic Jitsi calls → browser and electron client load/hang infintely and do not display the channel contents. The developer console on browser does not yield any results.
