Embed code for host

How can I get iframe’s embed code for host (who initiated a meeting), not for attendees?

I’m using code for attendees like this:

<iframe src="https://zoom.us/wc/{meeting_id}/join?prefer=1&un={base64_name}" width="1000px" height="500px" sandbox="allow-same-origin allow-forms allow-scripts" allow="microphone; camera"></iframe>

I need similar code for host.

Now I use iframe with src={start_url} (for host-side, not attendee-site), but it requires installation of Zoom when I open that iframe in Chrome browser. I want to embed Zoom without installation of program.

{start_url} - URL to start the meeting.

Response from Create a Meeting (Zoom API):

I’m actively reading your documentation and forum. Your documentation says that non-login user cannot start instant meeting but he can start scheduled meeting (with ZAK token in start_url). I’m trying start_url like https://us02web.zoom.us/s/87279800730?zak=... (received through Zoom API) in Chrome’s incognito window but it requires authentication (for scheduled meeting). How can I launch meeting in browser without authentication (ideally instant meeting)?

I found the answers to my questions at your forum. I’ll try Web SDK. Thank you, guys!

Thanks @pavel.register!

Yes right now the Web SDK is your best option.

We are working on an easily embeddable Zoom iFrame for the future.
