Can I see myself in big view all the time during a meeting where the others are muted?

Hi,
when I teach yoga via the tool, I need to see myself as main view all the time - because I am about 3 meters away from the screen, and if I am only a little symbol at the edge, I can’t even see if I am in the picture. I mute all others during these meetings, but still I did not manage to see myself as main view during the meeting. Please advise.
Thanks!

Press 0 on the keyboard to focus on yourself while in full-screen mode. This should work for you as is.

I have further modified the user/interface for working slightly better while hosting yoga classes by hiding most distracting buttons in the UI and make it work on mobile phones without installing apps.

Oh, that sounds great! how do I use this modified UI?

I am using my own jitsi server directly from the yoga studios internet connection.

Some of the customization can be done by editing the /usr/share/jitsi-meet/interface_config.js file on the server.

The full customized experience to hide the right side filmstrip at startup, and enable mobile users to use the web-interface I had to recompile the user-interface on the server by following the jitsi-meet development guide instructions.

Hm ok. I will try typing the “0” on the keyboard then to see myself big. When do I do this, and which view do I select before? Or doesn’t that matter?

PS: I am not a developer, as you may have noticed :slight_smile: So I cannot customize anything or edit files or stuff like that. but if typing the “0” works, then my problem is solved.
