Very highCPU and memory required while sharing my screen


My laptop with Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS as OS, 16 GiB RAM and 8 CPUs needs a high memory during the the meeting especially when I share my screen. Its so noisy that people can hardly hear me. I tried to close all Apps but the problem persists. I upgraded Zoom to the latest version but I m still facing the same issue.

Could you please help me? Any advice?

Thank you

Hey @lyoussar,

Thanks for using the dev forum!

Unfortunately, this forum is for Zoom SDK Developer questions only. I would suggest reaching out to Zoom Help Center for assistance with this.


Thank you Michael for your Email. I was also wondering if I was on the right place.

Could you please delete my message from this forum? I do not have the rights for that.
