    @AlexMartinez , all layouts get moved over to Kaltura and then associated together as parent-child relationships. To an enduser, it will presented as one "entry", but will function like a multi-stream asset where the viewer has the ability to toggle inputs as primary/secondary in the player, and even sub in any of 3+ inputs into either the primary or secondary view.

    You can check out an example here... https://eduteam.mediaspace.kaltura.com/media/t/1_vzoev3i3/231868293 . Use the player layout controls to swap primary/secondary, and bring in additional layouts.

    @thomas_ellis In my testing, the parent source gets duplicated in both streams by default and the user has to click the stream selection button to view the child. Is that expected behavior? For example, the meeting starts with camera only. Screen share begins. Screen share becomes visible in both the large view and picture-in-picture view. The user clicks the stream selection button to view the camera source.

    @desmondg , it sounds like in this situation that perhaps you are recording pseudo-duplicate layouts. If you have something like this where you are recording "Active speaker with shared screen" as well as an independent "Shared screen" then you would kinda have two copies of the shared screen, one as screen-only, and the other with shared screen and the presenter fixed in the upper right corner.

    That's my guess as to what's happening based on your description. Check your recording settings in Zoom and see if perhaps that is the case.

    @thomas_ellis Thank you for sharing that screenshot, that's helpful. So what would be the ideal Zoom cloud recording settings in you opinion?

    Should we click "Save closed caption as a VTT file" if we want Zoom captions to be sent to Kaltura?

    As the Zoom admin, we are wondering what campus wide Zoom settings can applied to make for the best experience in Kaltura world.

    Thanks @thomas_ellis

    @AlexMartinez UCSD has a great knowledge article on the different Zoom layout options and how they will look in the Kaltura video player.
