In most video collaboration systems, only one user may share their screen at a time. If another user wishes to also share their screen, commonly the previous user's shared screen disappears. Techniques are presented herein that allow any meeting participant to control the distribution of video streams. In particular, aspects of the presented techniques enable multiple participants to share their screens, allow individual users to choose which shared screens they wish to view on their local "stage," and allow a user to synchronize their stage with other participants.
