Do people react to a video of you?

Suppose you record a video of yourself on a bad day. Then you have some people sit in a room and watch that video without you being there. Do people react to you from watching you in the video? If this goes through land lines, cell lines and internet digital voice chat like skype, facetime, etc. then it should be easy to document. whatever is being emitted should be able to be captured in digital form and reproduced multiple times/analyzed. Any thoughts? Can someone make a video of people watching a video about yourself so we can see them react?

I have people that I speak both on phone and over the internet VOIP often and they react to me only when I meet them live.

PatmSucks92 lucky you that your PATM is of the local-only variety !. But pay close attention next time. It might be that you haven't yet noticed that it telecommunicates or perhaps you are right and indeed you have a simpler PATM version that only affects people locally around you. But for sure a big part of this community believes it travels through *phone lines* and other telecommunication means. I'd like to call this variant tele-PATM. So I think this creates a fork in the road for the community. Some should follow their inquiries on local-PATM only hypotheses. Others can pursue only a subset of those theories that must also be consistent with tele-PATM. I think it might be worthwhile for people who have tele-PATM to be more precise. Does it travel through VoIP internet talk like google talk, skype, facetime, etc? or "old-fashioned" cellphone wireless signal, or both? When using VoIP, do you generate reactions if you mute the mic? or only when it is unmuted?. What kind of device are you using to communicate. Different devices have different microphone technology that could make a difference. If people still have land-lines they should report if it goes through that as well.

tele-PATM affects both people locally and remotely. So one obvious hypothesis for tele-PATM is the sound wave hypothesis. A sound wave hypothesis could explain why it goes upwind, across sealed walls, it telecommunicates and also reaches very quickly people several yards away. This tele-PATM variant that broadcasts across various telecommunication platforms necessarily has to rely on the microphone to capture whatever the PATM emissions are generating as reports indicate that this happens not only on videoconferencing but also on audio-only communications.  Microphones capture pressure from sound waves, whether in the audible range or not, and convert them into electric current. It is clear that the content (which includes the needed info to replicate the PATM sound wave) is then stored either digitally or otherwise and transported through a network and reproduced at the other end generating remote PATM reactions. Since that process involves storing it for network transportation, the PATM culprit is trapped and can be analyzed. Does someone have any close friend with acoustics knowledge or deep knowledge of how microphones work that could help look into this?. By recording and analyzing the audio it should be easy to document some anomalies/discrepancies in the sound waves of audio recordings from PATMers vs non-PATMers.
