While more & more features/options are being added here & there, some basic stuff is still missing in Zoom Web SDK. There seems to be no option by which we can programatically hide non-video participants in Zoom Web SDK. Neither there is any offical sdk option/method/function nor html has logical classes so we can try to achieve the same using css, although some official sdk option/method/function which can do that would be a better option.
Browser Console Error
Not Applicable, request is about feature needed, not about some error.
Which Web Meeting SDK version?

Someone please help me in this.
Such a long associated high paying customer, yet can’t expect a solution from Zoom Support. They are there to just solve basic problems like “how to start video” nothing else.
Its been so long since software is developing developing & developing and yet so many basic things are still missing here & there. Don’t know what the heck they are developing when so many basic things are still missing when you compare cross platform SDKs.
Thank you for posting and sharing your feedback. You are right, the M-SDK does provide an option to programmatically “Hide Non-Video Participants” at this time. In checking our backlog, there is no item listed for “Hide Non-Video Participants” support in the upcoming quarter. I can see how offering this feature will also benefit you and your development process. I’ve gone ahead and reached out internally to see if there is already a plan to build this feature. When more information is shared on this topic, I will let you know what’s shared. In the meantime, I would love to hear more about your use case and why this feature is important to you? What benefits would you see from having this built? Happy to share your feedback with our SDK team for consideration. If you would like this feature to be considered for a future release, please feel welcome to also submit your use case as feedback here: Feedback - Zoom
Look feature is already there in other SDKs. Feature is already available in Web SDK but has to be executed manually by user by clicking “Hide Non-Video Participants” (as available when hovering non-video participant & clicking more button).
You guys already have enough reasons to have it, thats why you already have it properly in Other SDKs & partially in Web SDK, you don’t need to know my usecase as a reason to build this missing piece in WebSDK, when its already there in all SDKs fully or partially. There is no reason to not fully develop it for Web SDK (give option when joining meeting via WebSDK’s ZoomMtg.join function), such a basic thing got available in SDKs from so long yet its not available fully in Web SDK and its not that you can’t have it in Web SDK since you guys already providing user a manual option to click “Hide Non-Video Participants” which does the same thing. Just need to have an option (like other SDKs) to programmatically do the same.
If you can’t provide proper solution than provide alternative solution via:
- CSS Style (html doesn’t have logical classes so as to target those elements which needs to be hidden)
I need solution this time as i can’t ignore this now, its been years i am following up WebSDK yet it has not reached a good standard against other SDKs, no flexibility, so less options, i can’t wait my entire life to have this simple option in Web SDK while its already in other SDKs and also in Web SDK as manual option to the user. Sic.
And remember we here are discussing MISSING PIECE in WEB SDK, not asking for entirely a new feature, it is to bring it at par to other SDKs atleast in basic/fundamental options/features.
