[jitsi-dev] Suggestion: Mute Function


#1

Hey,

Just to make sure I understand. Is the currently existing "mute" button not
working for you?

--sent from my mobile

Dear Jitsi developers,

i am a big fan of your program and since the new Skype versions work like

crap and are overloaded with Advertising im only using Jitsi for talking
with my friends and playing videogames with them.

Now my suggestion is to implement a mute function to conference calls to

mute individual people.

The problem i have and i never could solve (in skype) is that, when i

want to play with my roommate and some people in the Internet together, me
and my roommate hear each other. I already tried the hold function but this
doesn't work since he or me would be muted for the whole conference.

If you really would be so kind and implement this very simple feature in

a future version i would be very VERY happy. To my knowledge is the muting
of individuals only possible in Teamspeak and Ventrilo (yet!) but i really
dislike the requirement of launching a server.

PS: I don't want you to exchange the hold function with a muting

function, i wan't the mute function to be added since the hold function is
also very important in my opinion.

Thank you for your time and efforts which made Jitsi to a really great

program.

I believe he wants a sort of moderator to be capable of "muting" others on the call. I don't know much about Jitsi's actions in this area but I think he's using Jitsi similarly to Mumble/Teamspeak/Ventrillo, where it's an "audio chat room" of sorts.

This would be interesting indeed. If anyone would like to open a ticket, it would be most welcome.

This would be interesting indeed. If anyone would like to open a ticket,
