Feature request: In Multipoint calls, automatically detect and remove "video muted" participants from layouts

    You have all participated in such calls, where some people kick-in the "Video Mute" feature, and their frame is a nice blue or black still image.

     

    Quite often, if there are more than 13 participants in the call, you also know that there are additional hidden participants, who deserve to be on-screen, rather than the "video mutes".

     

    The simple idea is for the Multipoint video engine to detect "video stillness" for a participant, and remove it from the layout as long as the image is still.

     

    This will make our multipoint calls nicer to look at
