Zoom Web Video SDK - Unable to Join Video SDK session when no Microphone is Available

We have found that if a user does not have a microphone, or for whatever reason, their microphone is blocked, they are not able to join a Video SDK session.

We were advised that listening-only without a microphone should be possible.

Is this the expected behavior? Is there a possibility to join a Zoom video SDK session from a browser that either does not access to a mic or mic is not physically present in order to Join and listen only?

Thanks for any clarity if this is a zoom limitation or something we’re doing wrong in our implementation.

Which Web Video SDK version?

Hey @seth ,

Thanks for sharing this with us. We are planning on fixing this. :slight_smile: (ZOOM-287814)
