    Customer question : When using screen sharing in conferencing the local video fills the screen and the remote participants go small. Why ? Customer had dual monitors. He wants to see the remote participants not his face.

    The problem goes as following:
    -Share your screen
    -Because you're sharing your screen and your screen is showing your screen, this happens.

    And this is the reason why you have to see your enlarged face.
    Eventually we will find some kind of work around to this, but it's doubtful that you'l ever be able to see what you're sharing on the same screen due to this effect.

    Morning Leonidas,

    No this isn't the issue let me demonstrate(warning large images and my face)

    I start a conference on my dual screen machine as follows:

    As you can see this is correct, the remote party (the side of my head) is large, my local video is small and my second monitor is ready with something to show. I initiate screen sharing :

    My local video fills the screen locally and the remote parties become small (imho this is the wrong way round).

    For reference remote side working as expected:
