I’m working with someone who runs Yoga classes on Zoom. She has a paid account. She sometimes uses virtual backgrounds against a big, wide greenscreen. The meeting settings are set to NOT allow anyone to share their screen.
To keep the left and right edges of the green screen from showing, she runs the meeting with “maintain original screen” checked under video settings. This starts the meeting with a narrower field of view. There are two black bands on either side. It looks like a 4x3 display which is just what is needed.
The problem is when someone joins with a 1920x1080 screen, and clicks to go full screen, the host screen switches wide too, exposing beyond the edges of the greenscreen. I think this is a bug, as the computer must still think someone is trying to share their screen, making the host’s machine go wide too. How do I prevent this? (If the attendee leaves their screen smaller (not full screen), nothing changes for the host’s screen ratio).
As background, I have changed the attendee’s screen to 4:3 mode, and the host’s ratio remains fine (narrow) regardless if the attendee goes full screen.
Thanks for any help!
