this api in place:

Hi @basma.A.

Thanks for reaching out! Just to make sure I’m understanding correctly, is your question in regards to this setting under our Update Webinar endpoint?

Is it possible to provide a few more details around your question so that I can further assist?

Thank you,

Hi @will.zoom ,

Hi @basma.A,

If you’re using a Webinar, I believe this would be expected, as attendees do not share their video in a webinar. Do you experience the same behavior for meetings?


Hi @will.zoom

these options are available in webinars ( at least in the GUI ) . but I can enable them using the api.

what about the other option : Always send 1080p video to attendees.

Hi @basma.A,

Ah, I see! Thank you for clarifying. At this time, I do believe this is a limitation of the API vs the GUI. However, I’m working on confirming this for you, and I will follow up with you here shortly. (ZOOM-247914)

No problem, I will follow up here as soon as I have an update! :slight_smile:
