In my acs application i try to preview the local screenshare videostream. So a user can see what he is sharing in the videocall page i created. In case he switches back to the videocall page.

when i call startscreenshare(). "localVideoStreamsUpdated" event isn't called so i can't seem to access the stream.
The "remoteParticipantsUpdated" event does fire. Here i can see the screenshare videostream is present. However i can't acces the stream in this event.
I have updated my js libraries to the newest version. But still no result.

i did found this bug: https://github.com/Azure/Communication/issues/67.
Can't seem to find if the bug was really fixed.
