We have a requirement to toggle the screenshare audio recording. Which configuration or property need to add to achieve it?

    Hey @Karthik — on your app, does the participant that started the recording have the choice of whether or not they'd like to include screen share audio? Or rather would you like to ALWAYS include screen share audio IF screen share audio is available?

    I will check with our recording eng team about your question — just want to make sure I understand the use case.

  • Hi @marco ,
    In our app, we would like to implement the feature that the participant who started the recording(owner) should have the choice to include screen share audio or not in the recording.

    Hi @Karthik I checked in with the engineers that work on recordings, and unfortunately the granularity to allow you to say: "I want to get a participant's mic audio but not their screenshare audio" is not yet available. You could set layout.participants.audio in an updateRecording() call and pass the explicit list of participants whose audio should be included, but it doesn't differentiate between mic and screenshare audio.

    Have you considered disabling the screenshare audio track at the sender client side instead? Or is this a situation where you'd like the screenshare audio to be shared during the call, but not in the recording afterwards?

    Either way, I will submit a detailed feature request for this gap.

  • Hi @marco ,
    Thanks for your reply,
    No we don't want to disable the screenshare audio at the sender client side. We want to share this audio among participants during the call. but we don't want to record this screenshare audio.
