> I was asking that the information that meetecho manages is designed in such a way that it can stay it its window.  I have no idea why you think the other items need to be addressed by meetecho.  (I don’t even know why the superfluous function to replace the slides by a codimd iframe is in there, who wants to use that?)
> Clearly, the participant names are unnecessarily large.  This causes a spacing where even the microphone line doesn’t fit on the screen and requires scrolling; I no longer can see who is speaking (as this is inexplicably below the microphone line).  So I need to run meetecho at 67 % scaling.  This means that the constant-width multi-purpose column is now wide enough that it would also be no problem to optionally fit the chat inside it.  These are all design options that need to be considered rationally.

I suppose we could ask Meetecho to offer a more compact style. I would 
prefer not to make the names much smaller since I find them hard enough to 
read as it is, but if they can do it by twiddling style sheets, or even 
better letting users twiddle their own style sheets, sure.
