Option to Mute / Unmute participants by moderator


#1

Hi Team,
I have setup Jitsi meet in Amazon EC2, I would like to know if there is an option to Mute / Unmute participants by moderator from the UI or using Jitsi external API.

I have looked for all the config files in Jitsi meet.
Please help me out in achieving this, thanks in advance.

There is no option to unmute due to privacy concerns.
You can click on the 3 dots on the remote participant and you can Mute that remote participant when you are moderator.

Thanks @damencho
Do we have option to hide participant video ?

The moderator can open the settings and enable ‘everyone starts hidden’ before the conference starts.
Or you can enable on your deployment startWithVideoMuted: true, and everyone will always start video muted.
