Hello Jitsi community,
Thank you so much for this great app!
I’ve already read that there might be multiple reasons why Jitsi Meet running in the browser window can put heavy load to the CPU of computers , laptops and smartphones . This leads to a lot of heat , loud fans and very short battery life .
I know that you can modify the URL to something like “https://meet.jit.si/somemeeeting#config.disableAGC=true” but this is not very convenient .
Why don’t you add five simple toggles to the user GUI settings so that people can turn off resource-hungry processes on their devices if they don’t need them?
One toggle to change own camera resolution: 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p.
One toggle to enable only one video stream (of the current speaker) at once: (channelLastN: 1, enableLayerSuspension).
One toggle to disable some audio processing (Automatic Gain Control, Noise Suppression, Highpass Filter, Audio Levels).
One toggle to disable all unnecessary visual effects (DISABLE_FOCUS_INDICATOR, DISABLE_DOMINANT_SPEAKER_INDICATOR, DISABLE_VIDEO_BACKGROUND, something else?).
One toggle to switch between hardware VP8 and H264.
I would like to use Jitsi permanently, but if the battery is empty after 50 minutes, it doesn’t do much and that seems to be a big problem when I look around the forum . So why are there no options for individual users to conveniently switch off unneeded options in the menu to save some battery juice?
Thanks and have a nice day!
