How to choose a fixed active speaker for streaming to youtube and recording


When doing recording or streaming to youtube, the system detects the active speaker by audio level from mic and switches the picture. This is fine in many cases.
However, sometimes some noise or just a short question from a participant which does switch the picture is percieved as annoying and disruptive to the main speaker.

Is there any configuration option to pre-choose active speaker for recording and streaming by jibri?
I’m running my own setup with jitsi-meet installed, so it is ok to modify config files on the server.

Could not find anything on this subject. Thank you in advance for your support.

Enable follow me from settings and choose the participant you want to be in the recording by clicking its thumbnail. That will change to that participant for everyone including in the recording.

It works! Thank you very much!
