Ah, didn't think of the manual end user action.

In my experience setting send quality even just to "low" or "normal"
results in pumping data traffic (up and down) even in a conference with
just two users. Hence my default is "lowest" and I let users manually
increase it for better screen sharing.

Ah yes.

Would it make sense to stop sending a video stream to a user if the user
displays only one of the streams as full-screen?

Mainly [Panic] means disable video and audio.

Hmm, to me [Panic] and [Mute] sometime feel redundant. Would it make
sense to have simple "buttons" for enabling/disabling video, audio and
screen-sharing? Hmm, could be tricky for the user with browser's
user-interaction asking for access permissions.

Ah, it seems my users and me are probably too disciplined. ;-)

Ciao, Michael.
