Set all options in webinterface

Great Zoom people,
I hope I hit the right spot, if not please let me know.

Nice that you are stil working on Zoom and trying to make it even beter.

However sometimes the improvements don’t always work out the way you want it to.
We are using a dedicated PC with our own writen scripts around the linux weblink connection.
It is being used for eldery people and they have only a remote control device to use it.

Now with the new update “Video Preview” we are stuck.

  1. How can we resolve this issue ?

  2. Would it be possible to also have those configurations in the administrators webinterface ?
    on/of yes/no

This would resolve this problems but also for in the future.

With kind regard,
Bart Helderman

Hey @bart, thanks for using Zoom!

Are you using one of our Developer SDKs or APIs?

If not,

Can you try setting this setting to on?

Your users can also change their camera settings on the Zoom Client and their profile.

For more information and help, please reach out to support@zoom.us

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi Tommy,
Yes, I know of this option, but we would like to see this in the admin webinterface for the whole room.
As said before the users do not have a mouse and keyboard.
Thanks
Hoping it wil become a added feature

Hey @bart,

A possible solution could be to use a Zoom Room instead of the Zoom App. Zoom Rooms allow for One-touch to join meetings with both video and audio (won’t block your flow as they do not use the video preview setting).

Let me know if you would like learn more about Zoom Rooms.

Thanks,
Tommy

Thanks for the reply,
We use the webinterface to make a connection, is that not the “zoom room” ?

Otherwise , YES I would like to know more.

Thanks in advance

If I have seen it correctly, a zoomroom is at this moment not possibly for us, we are a nonprofit with a little budget at the moment.
Thanks

Hey @bart,

To clarify, do you use the Zoom Desktop App/Client, or the Zoom Web Client to join the meetings?

If you use the Web Client, there is a way to join a meeting without having to go through the “preview video” popup.

As for Zoom Rooms (which I think is the ideal solution here), I can put you in touch with one of our sales people who can talk about non profit pricing :slight_smile:

Thanks,
Tommy

We use the webclient in a linux platform. Everything is controlled via bash scripts.
I like to hear more about the zoomroom

Thanks

Thanks for the info @bart!

Sales will be reaching out to you to see if Zoom Rooms are the best solution for your use case.

As a possible alternative to a Zoom Room, here is the 0 click start/join meeting link via the Zoom Web Client:

Start:

https://zoom.us/wc/{{ meeting ID }}/start

Join:

https://zoom.us/wc/{{ meeting ID }}/join?prefer=1&un={{ base64Encoded Name }}

See browser support here.

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi Tommy,
I made a mistake.

We do not use the webclient. We use a webbrowser ( firefox )

Sorry

No worries @bart :slight_smile:

I would suggest using Chrome if you decide to use the links I shared above to join/start meetings.

Thanks,
Tommy

Thanks for the advice, but we use firefox for the headless function.
I tried the links but I needed to login. With ff and google :innocent:

Thanks for the advice, but we use firefox because of the headless function.
Tried the links with ff and chrome but I had to sign in.

Happy to help @bart!

You do have to be logged in to start a meeting via this link:

https://zoom.us/wc/{{ meeting ID }}/start

but to join an existing meeting using this link, you do not have to be logged in:

https://zoom.us/wc/{{ meeting ID }}/join?prefer=1&un=YmFydA==

Anyway you can send me a photo of the “video preview” that is preventing you from joining the meeting without a mouse / keyboard?

Thanks,
Tommy

Hey @bart, this is what I thought! :slight_smile:

I would suggest the Zoom Room approach, unless you uncheck the “Always show video preview dialog when joining a video meeting” for your use case.

Thanks,
Tommy
