Useful for reducing the CPU and network load on other connect peers if voice-chat is sufficient.
  • Join a group-room as audio-only, to limit load on the guests.
  • Useful for a large group room where you want everyone in the room to see only the OBS Virtualcam output.
  • Consider using &broadcast option instead of this flag as it is better suited for presenting a single feed to a group than using &novideo alone.
When used together with &noaudio (&novideo&noaudio), prevents guest room member from seeing or hearing other member's audio or video feeds.
  • Useful for directors who may wish to only issue commands or text chat, but not need to see video or audio.
