Zoom - a quick question

My walking group has been doing a zoom meeting on Saturday mornings when we haven't been able to walk safely (too many of us).

I don't organise the meeting but what I want to do is turn off video so that I can't see others but I can hear them (to save my data). What I DON'T want is for everyone's video to be turned off so that the others can't see one another.

Is this even possible? Thanks.

Or.... If I turn off my own video would that hugely reduce the amount of data the session uses?

Ahhh... I've just found the answer to my 2nd question - reduction of about 30%. That still leaves me using around 1GB for 40mins.

So if anyone knows the answer to my 1st question I'd be grateful.

I'll answer my own question - 40mins with only audio from me but seeing the video from 4 other participants (one of whom left partway through) I used about 200MB. So that's very do-able.
