FYI... I am asking due to an incedent in a zoom meeting where only one of the participants was unable to use virtual backgrounds while the rest of the participants where able. When this participant checked his own zoom advanced settings the virtual background option was enabled. Thus I was wondering if the host would be able to have such selective control over specific participants, or if the reason could have been something else.
Unfortunately, that's not true. There is something else that can cause this, but what I am not sure. On occasion, my own background is not available in a meeting, and I get the OPs same message "Virtual Background has been Disabled", but I am the only one in the meeting whose background doesn't work. When I join the next meeting, my background starts working again. It's not that I am not running the latest version, or that the application is corrupt, because if it was, it wouldn't work in any meeting! There is a bug that causes this and Zoom haven't fixed it yet.
