Hello dear community!
I can not see videos when I am connected with zoom. I use Abrowser. Is that a problem with the browser?
Thanks for your time

Probably, the reason you are using Trisquel is "software freedom". In that case zoom should be avoided.

Does zoom even work within web browsers? I thought people had to use the zoom program itself. Also, it violates all of your software freedoms badly, as Jaret said.

> Does zoom even work within web browsers?

I have heard that there is a webapp. I haven't tried it myself because so far I have not needed to use Zoom. Although my university is heavily pushing Zoom, I have been fortunate in that my advisor is willing to use Jitsi Meet to meet with me, and that I am not prevented from using Jitsi Meet for the courses I teach.

Like the others have said, Zoom is nasty. If you are making a personal choice to try to use Zoom, I recommend using Jitsi Meet[1] instead. If you don't have a choice because you are being forced to use Zoom by your employer or institution, I can tell you that the desktop client does work on Trisquel, but we cannot help you install it because guiding users toward non-free software goes against our community guidelines.

The Free Software Foundation also has a Jitsi Meet server you can sign up for by becoming a donating member[1].

Zoom works in browser thru add-on. I have to use it in Windows.
Haven't used zoom add-on on Trisquel and have no intention to do so.
