It appears the source code is actually available. That is rare for a Windows app.
With that it may be possible to compile and run with Wine (no X86 needed). Or compile and run with Mono (if it's a UWP).
I doubt that would end well. Considering Zoom is video chat software, I don't think it would playback HW accelerated. I think the best options are the electron app or the chrome app.DougieLawson wrote: With that it may be possible to compile and run with Wine (no X86 needed).

I didn't say it's desirable and I have no point in doing that for three reasons 1) I don't have a RPi4, 2) I've got a perfectly good Win10 system and 3) I can't accept the faults in the Zoom security model.Botspot wrote: ↑Fri Apr 03, 2020 1:06 pmI doubt that would end well.

The Chromebooks that are being handed out here are proving to be just another headache and increase the trauma for parents, students and schools alike.
I chose to develop a configuration of Ubuntu Server 19.01 Desktop for the Raspberry Pi 4 because it operates very fully and is the fastest, simplest and most reliable way to configure an interface that is enough like OSx to relax any user. I have been using since the day Ubuntu Server 19.01 Desktop was released for this device, with 100% uptime. I did this because I was already seeing a deficit in the number of households who could afford a reliable computer for homework. I set the configuration up free of charge and have a unit in the field now with three students who argue over who gets to use it next. I want every computer user who needs a computer to have a computer. That being said, here is the remaining issue in my part of the world.
The schools are using Zoom meeting and Goto Meeting to facilitate the online, instructor-led portions of their classes. Audio and video via computer are required. Phone traffic makes phone audio and video almost impossible. Providers were not ready for an online world to pop up overnight. Can someone please adapt the Zoom app to the Arm processor in the Raspberry Pi 4 for Ubuntu Server 19.01 Desktop? It is the only larger hurdle left. There could be a Pi in every home. Students love to buy additional cards and play with Raspian and other operating systems and learning from the many available projects. I will be willing to be the guinea pig for this, just please do this. I feel that this device will be living up to so much more of its mission than ever imagined.
I think that's a good corollary to my comment.
I'm afraid I don't think that's the application's source code (which doesn't surprise me too much - I would've been frankly amazed if Zoom was open source!). I had a dig around the repos - there's some SDKs for embedding a Zoom client in an existing application (e.g. zoom-sdk-macos, zoom-sdk-android, zoom-sdk-windows), some out of date API docs (api-v1 and api), lots of sample code (sample-app-node, sample-app-ionic, etc.) but have a dig into some of those and see if you can find the actual client - I can't.Botspot wrote: ↑Fri Apr 03, 2020 12:58 pmIt appears the source code is actually available.

The electron SDK also looks like it's full of pre-compiled bits for Windows and Mac OS only (dig around under sdk/ in there).
Guys! Why tinker with Android when there's a Zoom Chrome app that Just Works® ?
Either the microphone built into my webcam, or I use my usb mike.
For some measure of "just works".
Well Zoom is what is being used by our kids' school so I want to have another device that I can use it on.Giga_Pi wrote: ↑Sat Apr 04, 2020 1:21 pmI have found zoom to not work well with Linux. I have attempted An average budget computer with Ubuntu, and Pi4. Audio was choppy, and not great.
Besides, zoom is not the best. You have to pay for it. If you don't, you only get 45 minutes. A personal favorite of mine is Google Hangouts. I haven't got a camera yet, but have used with a USB microphone, and have found it highly reliable fo me. But as a believer of choice in the world of software, each to his own!
Same for me on a Pi 3B. The same Chrome App run under Chrome on Windows 7 connected just fine so it seems it's not an issue with my network, router, or what I'm connecting with.
It would be better to get Zoom working on a Pi under Chromium if we could. It seems to work to some degree for some but not all. Would be nice to know why and fix that.WODAK wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 1:36 pmTry a different approach as I said in some other thread

I find Zoom doesn't work well under linux anyway. It could just be the way I use it (in the web browser), but some one needs to find what makes linux and zoom disagree (I'm afraid I'm not good enough to do that) .hippy wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:39 pmIt would be better to get Zoom working on a Pi under Chromium if we could.

I'd personally use Windows where it seems to work just fine if I wanted a different approach and that's much easier than faffing about with an Android phone. Especially as all mine have one camera, on the back, not the front.
I actually installed Ubuntu last night to try and see if the Ubuntu Zoom Client would work. It does not since it's not made for ARM.
