Enabling or disabling Scalable Video for your Vonage Video API projects.
- Vonage Video API
- Scalable Video
You can customize the scalable video setting for a specific project API key in the account portal.
- Log in to your Vonage Video API Account.
- From the left menu, select a Project.
- Scroll down to Project Settings.
- Under General Settings, click Edit.
- Select the desired setting for the Scalable Video
On — Scalable video is always enabled (in supported clients) for all sessions in the project.
Off — Scalable video is not enabled for any sessions in the project.
Auto (default) — Scalable video is enabled for a session in the project when the OpenTok Media Router determines that it should be used (when there are more than two clients in the session).
Unless there is a specific reason for scalable video to be always on or off, you should leave the Auto option selected.
6. Click the Save button.
By default, in sessions that support scalable video, scalable video is disabled for screen-sharing streams and enabled for all other streams (streams that have a camera or custom video source).
For sessions that support scalable video (that do not have scalable video turned off at the project level), you can override the default scalable video setting while publishing the stream (enabling it for a screen-sharing stream or disabling it for other streams).
