[jitsi-dev] Jitsi-meet speaker symbol


#1

Hello,

I noticed that the "Main Speaker Symbol" only changes, when the other users different than me are currently speaking.
So when I become the main speaker, because I am talking the whole time, the "Main Speaker Symbol" does not change to my user's film strip.

This behavior is rather confusing.

I think it would be better that the "Main Speaker Symbol" is set to the actual main speaker, even if that it's me.

Opinions? What do you think?

Regards,

Rainer

Ps: I am using jitsi-meet 1.0.775-1

Hi,

we are currently working on switching to the library for jitsi-meet.
There we currently change this one, so when the local participant is
the dominant speaker we clear the indicator from remote participants.
On later stage we can add this indicator and to local video thumbnail,
but I personally don't think this is necessary, cause its not needed
as the current speaker knows he is speaking :slight_smile:
Soon this will be available in the master (once we switch).

Thank you for the info.

I brought this matter, because several users came to me and commented this was rather confusing.

Agree.

I am not sure that I do. Now that we have the icon and separate it from the "on stage" speaker then I don't see why we wouldn't move it over ourselves. Otherwise it just looks like something might be broken and could lead the user into thinking they are not being heard.

We should check if this would be hard to fix.
