Browsers crash out of memory

Browsers are crashing with an “out of memory” error.

Users on different browsers (chrome, internet explorer, etc.) are experiencing “out of memory” error crashes on the browser when using the zoom web sdk.

Is there some way we can forward the users, zoom meeting ids, host ids etc. in a way that isn’t public? I have a list prepared to send.

Not enough memory to open this page.
Try closing other tabs or programs to free up memory.

  3. Try a few toggling a few different activities like screen share and using messaging.

Hey @kylerebstock ,

Can you confirm which SDK please? Is it the Client Web SDK, or the Fully Customizable Web SDK?

If it is the Client Web SDK, my first suggestion would be to upgrade to the latest version, 1.9.0.

Let me know if that helps! :slight_smile:


@tommy We are in the process of upgrading to 1.9.0. We’ll update back as soon as we know this is working or not. Is there any additional information we know of that can help in the interim? It seems like using some browsers will help.

Hey @kylerebstock ,

We recommend using Chrome. Please let us know if upgrading to Web SDK 1.9.0 fixed the issue. :slight_smile:
