Thanks for the great effort to make zoom on RPi available to a wide community. There's obviously a big interest into this, and it's a pity that zoom are not interested in this.
I've tried the Pi-Apps/box86 approach and here are my preliminary results.
Test setup is
- Rasberry Pi 4 rev2
- Raspberry OS 10 with latest updates (@2020-01-24)
- Pi-apps commit 1eb1e5c (https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps
- usb webcam Logitech C615 (connected to USB-3 port)
- audio to HDMI (TV)
- personal Zoom room with 3 participants.
1/ Application is not usable due to low FPS video rate and constant audio interruptions.
Maybe there are specific configurations that should be done before ?
I've noticed in various related posts :
- increasing GPU RAM,
- tweaks on audio interrupts,
- tweaks on pulseaudio config
Also - is it possible to change the Zoom video resolution ?
( I have only run on defaults - not aware if can be changed)
2/ After installing Zoom from P-apps, audio stopped working from Chromium. (eg play youtube).
Actually, some sound can be heared, but it's some cracks vaguely resembling the actual audio.
Uninstalling pulseaudio and reboot fixes this.
Maybe there's a reason why pulseaudio is not installed by default.
3/ (unrelated to zoom) Google Meet in Chromium works flawlessly, even on 720p video
