Camera not enabled until switchToNextCamera() is called


Hello, I am working on a project with custom meeting UI. When the user joins the meeting (MeetingStatus.MEETING_STATUS_INMEETING), I add the views like this:

                val videoViewManager = zoom_mobile_rtc_video.videoViewManager
                videoViewManager.addActiveVideoUnit(MobileRTCVideoUnitRenderInfo(0, 0, 100, 100))
                videoViewManager.addAttendeeVideoUnit(zoomSdk.inMeetingService.myUserID, MobileRTCVideoUnitRenderInfo(75, 75, 20, 20))

However, the user’s video is not activated immediately (just see the placeholder icon). If I call


then the user’s video is activated, but ideally I don’t have to do that (and also the camera switches to the back-facing camera).

Do you have any suggestions on how to make the video activate immediately? Thanks!

Which version?
