Start Meeting without host start?


My Application Scenario is like this:

  1. create a meeting by back-end-server using API.
  2. 3 users, join the meeting by Web SDK & JS SDK.
  3. I am getting an error message like “meeting not started”.

can I start meeting without the host start?
How can I start by meeting by API? any other way?
Do users join the meeting without a host?

Create Meeting Parameters:
“topic”: “Testing API Create Metting”,
“type”: 1,
“password”: “”,
“agenda”: “3 users join the test meeting”,
“settings”: {
“host_video”: true,
“participant_video”: true,
“join_before_host”: true,
“mute_upon_entry”: true,
“watermark”: true,
“use_pmi”: false,
“approval_type”: 2,
“audio”: “voip”,
“auto_recording”: “none”,
“enforce_login”: false

Hey @arunkumar,

You can start the meeting via the Web SDK by setting the role to 1 in the meetConfig object. This allows a user to join the meeting as a host which starts the meeting.

Let me know if this helps! :slight_smile:
