To get video view of a given participant

You can call participant.getVideoView() which will return a View which further can used to add in any ViewGroup in android.

Similarly one can use participant.getScreenShareView() which will return a View which further can used to add in any ViewGroup in android.

Similarly, you can also access the pagination related information like follows:

val maxNumberOnScreen = meeting.participants.maxNumberOnScreen
val currentPageNumber = meeting.participants.currentPageNumber
val pageCount = meeting.participants.pageCount
val canGoNextPage = meeting.participants.canGoNextPage
val canGoPreviousPage = meeting.participants.canGoPreviousPage

Move between pages in paginated mode

The setPage(pageNumber: Int) method allows you to switch between pages of participants present in the meeting.

// switch to 1st page

Host Controls

If you (the local user) have the relevant permissions, you can disable a participant's video or audio, or kick them from the meeting.

// To kick a participant from the meeting

You can also pin or unpin a participant in the meeting. All "pinned" participants are added to the meeting.participants.pinned list.
