The issue that most affects video conferencing is, most probably, the "switchover" from one satellite to another. When I look at my SL app I see a large number of outages in the range of 01.s to 1.0 s. They can occur as frequently as every couple of minutes. Recently I opened a support ticket to ask about these and the response was to explain that I was, indeed, seeing this satellite to satellite handoffs.
I was told that as the number of satellites increases the duration of these outages will reduce (the "spacing" between satellites will be less) but, of course, they will always be there.
Rather than running a "failover" setup I am using a load balanced connection using my Verizon hotspot along with my Starlink. I find that load balancing seems to work better than any kind of active failover or hot standby arrangement.
I would think that World Cup soccer would provide a good test of any arrangement you implement. I doubt that the video stream has much, if any, buffer so it ought to be analogous to a Zoom meeting.
