1. An electronic device comprising:
a display device;
a communication interface that enables the electronic device to communicatively connect to at least one image stream transmitting (IST) device during a video presentation session;
a memory having stored thereon a video image segmentation and selection module (VISSM) with program instructions for selective display of one or more segments of a video feed based on user preferences; and
at least one processor communicatively coupled to the display device, the communication interface, and to the memory, the at least one processor processing the program instructions of the VISSM, which configures the processor to:
receive, via the communication interface, the video feed from the video presentation session;
determine that the video feed is a subject-based segmented video feed comprising multiple segments that can be individually selected for local presentation on the display device, including a primary segment within which a primary subject is presented, and at least one secondary segment having at least one secondary subject;
determine a user preference for local viewing options of the video presentation session, from among (i) a first preference that the video feed should include respective segments presenting the primary subject and the at least one secondary subject; and (ii) a second preference that the video feed should include only the primary segment with the primary subject; and (iii) a third preference that the video feed should include one or more of the at least one secondary segments, but not the primary segment; and
provide a resulting video feed on the display device presenting only content of specific segments of the received video feed that correspond to the user preference.
