Video starts sharing automatically?

As of Saturday, when my app connects to Zoom meeting, video starts sharing automatically. It didn’t do it before…

I can muteMyVideo after the meeting is established, but the camera still gets engaged for a brief second, killing my own camera preview session.

Unfortunately, calling muteMyVideo before connecting to the meeting has no effect.

Would it be possible to make muteMyVideo API functional even if it’s performed before the meeting is joined? I basically need a way to tell SDK that I don’t want it to share video before I join the meeting…


Hi grey-bit,

If you would like to mute the video by default, you can use(


Enable this setting and it will mute the video by default.

Hope this helps. Thanks!
