Zoom Meetings also known as Zoom is a proprietary videotelephony software program developed by Zoom Video Communications.
Zoom is commonly used in remote work and educational environments.
Installation is pretty fairly straightforward; just set USE flags as appropriate and then emerge the package. See the sections below about USE flag requirements for specific features (video and audio).
USE flags for net-im/zoom Video conferencing and web conferencing service
First, accept the all-rights-reserved license (you can read it at '/var/db/repos/gentoo/licenses/all-rights-reserved')
echo "net-im/zoom all-rights-reserved" >> /etc/portage/package.license
emerge --ask net-im/zoom
If the system uses Pulseaudio, enable the
pulseaudio USE flag. This should rectify issues of not being able to speak to people.
Normally, if the system has a webcam available, it should just work. If the webcam video feed is not displayed in Zoom, here are some things to try:
- Use a different program to make sure that the webcam itself is working (see Webcam)
- Ensure that Zoom is upgraded to
220.127.116.1138-r1or later, or that the
openclUSE flag is enabled. (see for the context)
- Ensure that the
bundled-libjpeg-turboUSE flag is enabled.
