My conferences often start with audio & video muted
In my usecase, some users are only listeners, so they should not need to grant mic permission or if they don’t even have a microphone, they should be able to join the conference in listen-only mode
Is there a possibility to ask the user for device permission after joining the conference when he wants to unmute his microphone?
If some people are only listeners, have you considered setting up the live streaming feature? It would allow listeners to join via a YouTube Live link, which would go easy on your system resources.
thank you for the input. due to privacy reasons, we would like to keep it on our jitsi-server and knowing who is listening to the conversation. As soon as there is a link to a livestream, it’s harder to control that.
there are 2-4 people discussing and 10-15 people who are only listening so jitsi would fit perfectly for this application.
