Hi everyone !
With the lockdown, I want to develop new ways of doing interactive dance performances that everyone can watch from their own homes. I want to perform a show from my home, and the audience would be present through a jitsi call and also share their video with everyone. The audience members will do actions that everyone else will see, thus making the “stage design” of the show. For this to work, I would need a specific layout for all video call participants, where I know in advance where each participant is and where the same custom layout appears on each participant’s screen.
I would like to use a gallery layout as drawn in the attached image. The performer would take a larger space in the middle of the layout, and each audience member would have a space around the performer. The specificity is that I need to assign a position to each audience member before the video conference / performance starts. When each audience member registers for the performance, I send them a meeting link that will assign them a specific number. So I would know that Mr X will appear in the audience slot number 4, and Ms Y in slot number 12, etc. The layout needs to appear in this ordered way for myself and for all the meeting participants.
Do you think that I could use lib-jitsi-meet for that ? Are there enough options already implemented inside to make a custom UI or would I need other tools ?
Thanks in advance !
