Do track events occur for remote participants?

Are track-started and track-stopped events meant to be emitted only for the local participant's own tracks, or for remote participant tracks as well?

    Do you get “participant-updated” events from the remote participants?

    Yes! I added a listener and now “participant-updated” for remote participants works. Thanks all!

  • I believe that it’s for all tracks

  • Weird, I am seeing it only for local tracks. I suspect I'm doing something wrong then?

  • It may also change based on whether or not you're using prebuilt.

  • Interesting, thanks. I am using custom call object. In my case, I am getting track-started/stopped events for camera and mic (not using screen share), but only for the local participant, not remote ones.
