But only if there are still guests or you have some timeout plugin in prosody, not?
I am looking for some elegant way to allow easy access to the meet server but not fully open it to everyone (which I did during the pandemic)
Currently what I could think of is
login / create the room
stay in the room, disable mic/cam
leave browser open, waiting for the meeting time
at meeting time enable mic/cam
What I do not not like about this;
is that people that are joining early, see you are also already in the room available with disabled mic/cam, and they assume you see them joining.
I think it would nicer for such a person, would have some privacy to maybe check some settings, see if everything is working ok before the meeting.
If nobody else is in the room, they are more comfortable investigating a bit the features and options.
