Details on your question, workflow or the problem you’re trying to solve.

After upgrading the Meeting SDK Android to the zoom-sdk-android- recently, when joining a Zoom meeting, participants can only see small video thumbnails of each participant (as indicated by the red box in the screenshot below). The larger video feeds of other participants (indicated by the blue box in the screenshot below) are not displayed initially, which was automatically shown (active speaker mode) before the upgrade.

Switching to other functions and then returning to the video feed restores the automatic display of the larger video (the normal active speaker mode)

Is there a way to adjust or configure any settings or parameters to ensure that the active speaker mode is activated right from the start upon joining a meeting??

It seems like you’re experiencing a specific issue with the Zoom Meeting SDK on Android after upgrading to version While I can’t provide real-time technical support, I can offer some general guidance on troubleshooting this type of issue:

  1. Check the Documentation: First, consult the official documentation of the Zoom Meeting SDK. Check for any release notes, known issues, or migration guides related to the version you’ve upgraded to. Sometimes, the SDK update might come with changes in default behavior or new configuration options.
  2. Configuration Options: The Zoom Meeting SDK typically provides various configuration options that developers can use to customize the behavior of the SDK. Look through the SDK documentation for any settings related to video layout, active speaker mode, or initial video display configuration. If such settings exist, you might be able to adjust them to achieve the desired behavior.
  3. Forums and Communities: Zoom often has developer forums or communities where other developers and Zoom staff discuss issues and solutions. Posting your question there might help you get more specific advice from people who have faced similar problems.
  4. Contact Zoom Support: If you can’t find a solution through documentation or forums, consider reaching out to Zoom’s developer support. They might be able to provide guidance specific to your issue.
  5. SDK Demos: Zoom usually provides sample applications or demo projects alongside their SDKs. You might want to check if there’s a demo project that showcases the desired behavior, and then compare its configuration with your own implementation.
  6. SDK Updates: If the issue persists and it’s affecting your application’s functionality significantly, you might consider rolling back to a previous version of the SDK or waiting for a subsequent update that might address the issue.

Remember that development environments and issues can be complex, and it might require some experimentation and interaction with the relevant community to arrive at a solution.
