USE flags for net-im/zoom Video conferencing and web conferencing service

bundled-libjpeg-turbo Use bundled libturbojpeg instead of media-libs/libjpeg-turbo
bundled-qt Use bundled Qt and icu instead of system-wide libs
opencl Use OpenCL for virtual background support (virtual/opencl)
pulseaudio Add support for PulseAudio sound server
wayland Enable dev-libs/wayland backend

The above list of USE flag is not comprehensive. Use equery (part of app-portage/gentoolkit) for a full list:

user $equery uses net-im/zoom


To compile the naturally provided version based on system Keywords, just issue:

root #emerge --ask net-im/zoom

Enabling audio

If the system uses Pulseaudio, enable the Pulseaudio use flag. This should rectify issues of not being able to speak to people.

Enabling webcam

To access the webcam, the 'bundled-libjpeg-turbo' USE flag may need to be enabled. See bug #833951.
