Can i mute and unmute remote participants locally?

Would it be possible for me to mute and unmute remote participants locally, that is only I do not see their video feed or hear their audio feed but other people can? If yes, then how?

Hover your mouse over the thumbnail of the participant you want to mute, you’ll see an ellipsis (3 dots) on the top-right. Click on the ellipsis to reveal a drop-down menu from where you can “Mute” and “Stop video” for the participant.

ohh my bad, i wasn’t really clear, i meant how can i implement this in lib-jitsi-meet xP. As in what functions should I use?

LJM is nor involved in that. Just mute or lower the volume of the <audio> tag where you are rendering the remote audio.
