Manipulating live video

My startup is in the research of selecting video and collaboration platform for our application.
We need to be able to show different views of the users video.

In long term the application would run on Desktop/Web/Mobile.

The question:
In one of the views we would like to show a background picture with the live attendees faces only
(not showing the full picture but only part of it - the face).
Is this possible with zoom SDK?

Hey @shalomgu,

Thanks for reaching out about this—very cool use case.

At the moment, it’s not possible to manipulate the live video feed like this. However, we’re planning on releasing a lot more customization options to our SDKs in the near future, which you might be interested in. To stay up to date on the latest developments, you can subscribe here.


Thanks @will.zoom.

Two followup questions:

  1. In the new API I saw that for android/ios the raw stream is accessible. Does it not allow to manipulate it before sending/disaplying to others?

  2. Do you have a roadmap document with planned features ?


Hey @shalomgu,

For your first question, I would recommend posting this in #mobile-sdk, and someone from my team will be able to confirm this for you.

Regarding our developer roadmap, we don’t have one specifically for our SDKs, but you can find our general roadmap here:
