Hide film strip for decrease bandwidth download

Does hiding the film strip with users video thumbnails, ether with the toggle at the bottom right or pressing “F,” decrease your download bandwidth? Are the thumb nails still active as they are off the screen? Wondering when I have a large number of guest, If I tell them all to hide their thumbnails or I remove them all together, would it make the meeting smoother for each user?

Could you remove the thumbnails and save bandwith. ? Please share if you have some clean way to do it.
