We would like to use the Zoom API to check if a webinar has started, however, we can’t find an API to check this.
https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/api-reference/zoom-api/webinars/webinar - this API only gives us information about the scheduled start time.
If the webinar is started, everything works well, however if a person starts when the webinar isn’t live, we see this error in the log:
result: “Meeting 94900460578 not started.”
Which Web Client SDK version?
We use SDK version 1.9.1.
To Reproduce(If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
- Create a new webinar
- Try to join the webinar before it’s started
Another option could also be a waiting screen which let’s people wait until the webinar starts.
See screenshot above.
