Live Jitsi

The Problem If you are using a video conferencing platform and want to have a lot of people attending you probably want to only have a few speakers and a lot of viewers - in a real life conference you normally have a few people up on stage and perhaps a few roving microphones for questions. If you are using a platform where everybody is equal you may have noticed that there is the issue of people who are supposed to just be viewing can still, often accidentally, interrupt the call because their mic is on.
