1. What is Active Speaker?
In default, when there are 3 or more participants in the meeting, ezTalks dynamically detects who is speaking and automatically shifts the video feed to the active speaker, which means the larger video window keeps switching to the active speaker.
2. How to disable Active Speaker?
Pin video allows you to fix a specific participant's video no matter he/she is the active speaker or not. If you pin a specific participant's video, he/she will show as the larger video in the presenter view and will be on the top in the gallery view. Pinning another participant's video will only affect your local view, not the view of other participants.
If you enable the PIN video feature, it will disable the Active Speaker mode.
3. How to Pin a participant's video?
