When using Zoom, the active speaker doesn't work. The participant source stays on the host camera when set to default, regardless of who is speaking.

No pin or spotlight is set. Anyone in the zoom app or zoom web sees the cameras changing as per the usual active speaker, but not in vmix.

We tried with both an HD licence and a Pro licence.

Hi,

This is expected behaviour.
To explain why, vMix only has access to raw audio/feeds of participants that need to be selected manually.
There is no "active speaker" feed available.

So default is the first participant in the meeting.

It is not possible to dynamically change this, as this would require multiple recordings to be started and stopped, sometimes many a second
that would become unreliable and offer poor performance.

As a result, you will need to manually assign participants to separate Zoom inputs in vMix.

Regards,

Martin

You can simulate Active Speaker with the new triggers - set a trigger for "when this person is speaking on Zoom, cut this source to output".
