We have users with low CPU machine using our application. We realized that on the 1.9.0, the gallery view switch option button is deactivated for such users. (no button available, so they only have the speaker view mode)
We could reproduce it 100% of the time between different computer models, ones with low CPU specs, others with high CPU specs. And CPU is the only main difference between computers (same chrome version, same OS, etc.)
It looks like the Web SDK deactivate the gallery view option if the computer running it has not enough CPU. Very similar behavior that the one with video thumbnail being deactivated when doing screen sharing without enough CPU power.
- Can you please confirm this is (CPU) the reason of what we observed, and that it’s a wanted behavior ? (we did not find anything about that on your documentation for the gallery mode release)
- Is there a way to disable this or customize it on a future release ? We are running most of our meeting in 1 vs 1 mode or 1 vs 2 mode, so it does not make sense to deactivate that gallery view just on the supposition that the meeting can host many participants (and i agree, using the gallery view on low CPU specs with many participant’s video to render would affect the rendering performance)
The device we observe this are old chrome box models.
