Webex - How to Turn Off or Prevent a Participant's Video in Webex Meetings, Webinars, and Events (classic)
Have you ever wanted to turn off video for a participant who's left the room, or when there's a distraction in the background? Hosts can turn off a participant’s video during a meeting, webinar, or event.
How Turn Off Participants Video
From the Participants panel, right-click on a particular user or video system and select Stop Video .
Participants can turn their video back on when they're ready, including if they leave and rejoin the meeting.
In webinars and events, only panelists can send video.
If the main video window is locked on a particular user, see Select who you want to focus on in the main window.
How to Prevent Users from Turning on their Video
From the Menu Bar, navigate to Meeting | Options | Uncheck "Allow all Participants to Turn On Video"
