How to run zoom video conferencing client on th Pi?
The only way at the moment is to use the Chromium browser (https://zoom.us/
1. Select "Join a Meeting"
2. Enter the Meeting ID, click "Join".
3. *Cancel* the pop-up, "Open xdg-open?", scroll down, and click "Join From Your Browser".
4. Enter you name, and click "Join".
Camera: USB webcam, like a logitech C500, or the standard Pi cam board.
Mic: On the webcam, or a separate USB mic.
My camera worked ok, but the mic was blocked. The Zoom audio said "your browser is blocking access" (but it wasn't). To fix the Mic, edit the default config in "/home/pi/.asoundrc", as per instructions https://iotbytes.wordpress.com/connect- ... pberry-pi/
BTW, the chrome app extension (zoom, or zoom scheduler) doesn't work. It will install, but you'll get an infinite spinning wheel when you try to join a call. And, there's no Zoom Linux client for RaspberryPi, due to Pi's ARM CPU, and all the Zoom Linux clients are compiled for x86 CPUs.
