Is it possible to completely hide the broadcaster's viewpoint and only show a guest's stream using the IVS stage feature?


I'm currently reading through the official documentation on the "multiple hosts" feature of Amazon IVS and one thing I don't fully understand is: Can I completely hide the broadcaster's stream to only show the viewpoint of a guest? E.g. in the example of the guide, can Alice be completely invisible to the audience and only Bob's video be shown in fullscreen?

Yes, this is possible. If you don't add the slot for the local stream (either audio or video), then it will not be visible in the broadcast.

See the docs for more info.
