Our application provides a way for users to use the Zoom Desktop application over the one made from the Zoom Web SDK. This happens transparently, and in order to do that, we open the start_url link on a hidden browser and let it generate a zoommtg link for us.
However, we have an issue where the start_url redirects the users to the download page (or forces the user to download zoom first) despite having Zoom already installed on their machine – and this seems to be random. During these cases, the page does not generate a zoommtg link even after performing refreshes. We have to wait for some time (it could take up to 2 minutes) before the page decides to give us a zoommtg link, which is not ideal.
Is there a way for us to generate a zoommtg directly from a start_url link? Or is there a direct API we can use to retrieve a zoommtg link?
