[Freeswitch-dev] mod_conference - User Classes

Would the speaker's video always be presented even if the speaker is not the loudest? Just not entirely clear on the proposed
semantics of "speaker". Would it be used in lecture/presentation style conferences?

sounds useful enough, lets see how you do.

One feature that many conferences have is classes of users. There is the Host/Moderator, speakers, and Guests/participants. In such conferences, the Host may have the ability to Mute all non-speaking Conferees. Currently this requires a separate flag for each user indicating the user class. To toggle conference level mute, the application will need to get a conference list and run through it. For each conferee in the list, the current mute status and user class must be determined.

I would like to propose introducing a new member flag: speaker.
This indicates that the member is a speaker and should not be automatically muted. This would be provided as a "speaker" flag as part of the status on a list.

A new set of Conference APIs would be also be provided: mute & unmute at the conference level.
When issued, any member that does not have a moderator or speaker flag set would be muted or unmuted.

If the conference is "guest muted", the first line of the list API response would indicate this a "muted" similar to the locked indicator currently provided.

If this seems like a reasonable proposal, I would take a stab at modifying
mod_conference and testing it and then submit it via a Jira request.
