Screenshare in two directions

Can I enable screen sharing in two directions at the same time? That is, so that both the host and the participant simultaneously show each other their screen?

Now it turns out like this:

  • If the host started the screenshare, then an error occurs when trying to start the participant’s screenshare: {“type”:“INSUFFICIENT_PRIVILEGES”,“reason”:“only host can grab screen share”}
  • If the share is started first by the participant and then by the host, then the participant’s screen sharing is aborted and the “active-share-change” event is not fired.

Is there a solution to this problem or is it impossible to do this?

Hey @evgen_dev

Thanks for your feedback.

The Video SDK Web is not able to support multiple screen sharing at the same time so far. We will roll out this feature in the next release. Please stay tuned.
