    Re: Zoom Communications Services

    I prefer to use jitsi, but it only works on Chrome/Chromium-based browsers. I know it works on Slimjet, but I don't know about Vivaldi.

    I've been involved with Toastmasters meetings on zoom, which I guess I'll need to still be involved with, but I might rule it out for individual conversations.

    Re: Zoom Communications Services

    I use Zoom regularly several times a day to attend video meetings remotely since I work from home -- which is out in the boondocks.

    I use Ubifi and a directional Yagi antenna to hit an AT&T cell tower and I get about 32 - 34 Mbps, which is pretty good for a rural connection. Works just fine.

    Work and organizations will dictate the apps that we must use. Unfortunately, there's no getting around that.

    But on a personal level, we thankfully have choices. I use Signal (in snap form): FOSS, secure, distributed, point-to-point, encrypted. Apps for Android, Apple/iOS and Windows.

    Major drawback is: it only connects one-on-one. No group video chat AFAIK, which for some is a deal breaker.

    There's also Jami which does permit group video chat. Same benefits: FOSS, secure, distributed, point-to-point, TLS encrypted. Also in snap store and has Android, Windows, Apple/iOS apps.

    The application does not come with a help document. I could not find any information on how to indicate that I wished to participate in the conference. And there is a lot of audience participation in our Christian meetings. I have now found out how to do it but at the time I did not fancy clicking everything in sight during the actual meeting.

    very few things break in future Linux or other distros. a program i wrote in a very old Slackware and last compiled in a more recent Slackware works fine in Xubuntu 18.04. it won't compile due to some gcc changes. i'm rewriting it in Python rather than fixing the C version. but for now, the binary works on x86_64.

    Re: Zoom Communications Services

    When you install the Zoom client with dpkg, it will complain about three missing dependencies. You need to install them manually and then it works as advertised. See my post above.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Does it have a limit on number of participants? I couldn't just see anything about that

    Re: Zoom Communications Services

    I didn't want to install the .DEB package outside of the repository. So, I installed the snap package instead.

    One minor issue I encountered is that the camera was disabled in the "limited environment" of snap. So, I had to enter a command to map the laptop camera:

    snap connect zoom-client:camera core:camera

    Much easier to use sudo apt install rather than sudo dpkg install as apt will sort out and install all the dependencies automatically and does not need the manual installation of those dependencies.

    Group chats of up to 100 are possible.
