Best free video conferencing app (since the v5 update) for the Mac. Skype is dying a slow death. FaceTime is limited to Apple users and never seems to work without hiccups for both parties whenever I use it. PPL complain it is time limited but if you need to run your meetings longer than 40 mins then you need to sort your agenda out first or purchase the paid plan. It's easier to use and cheaper than using GoToMeeting/Webinar and Webex. BlueJeans might be the closest competitor to Zoom at the moment.

It won't download on my mac saying it will only download on a mobile phone that I've not used since last November. Its got no sim in, its not on the internet & not even on! When I download Zoom from my browser, its saying it cannot support audio and to download a browser like firefox or something. Firefox is on my mac & still I'm getting the same message. Fed up! I've got a zoom app on my ipad with no problem yet you can't seem to get a zoom app on a mac that you can actually open and use, the same way. When I download the app its just going to my downloads & I can't actually get it as an app! Ridiculous

I was presented with a screen dated 1 May 2020 and a box to type a number but no response to my click on the blue box with the camera. A terrible experience for me and my mac.

Not sure. Getting all kinds of feedback. For the time being I will take the risk of using it as it seems to be the best in the market, good video, sound, etc. Hope the free 40 mins can be extended to 2 hours until corvid-19 becomes docile.

I clicked on another button on that page, but that seemed to be just for some review group, or something similar. I waited, but no zoom arrived. I tried again, but got nowhere. VERY FRUSTRATING.

So much for security through obscurity. With Zoom being used by everyone during the Social Isolation Ordeal, from Granny to Baby, major security exploits are being uncovered every few days to the point where it's unwise to use it. I linked today's example below. AVOID Zoom until it gets all fixed up again and Zoom's marketing stops hiding the chinks in Zoom's armor. - -> "Ex-NSA hacker drops new zero-day doom for Zoom" https://techcrunch.com/2020/04/01/zoom-doom/

While Zoom twiddles its thumbs until its delayed July 12 security update... Apple has pushed out an update to their MRT (Malware Removal Tool) ConfigData, version 1.45 dated 7/10/19. MRT is part of Apple's XProtect security system. This MRT update disables Zoom's inexplicably installed faulty web server, which is the core of one of their security holes.

Public pressure & shaming has prompted Zoom to update their Mac client app to fix this horrible security hole. Current version = 4.4.53932.0709. Release notes: Remove local web server -We are discontinuing the use of a local web server on Mac devices. Following the update, the local web server will be completely removed from the Zoom installation Option to uninstall Zoom -Zoom users can now uninstall the Zoom desktop application and all of its components through the settings menu

Current Version = 4.4.53932.0709
Get it HERE:
https://www.zoom.us/download

1) CVE-2019–13449 - A Denial of service attack. Update NOW to patch!

So you'll have to PATCH AGAIN!

From LifeHacker: "The Zoom video conferencing app contains two big security issues for Mac users. First, uninstalling the app the regular way doesn’t actually remove it from your system; instead, by installing Zoom, you’ve actually installed a persistent web server on your system that can be used to reinstall the app without your permission. Why is that a problem? Because an attacker can then send you an invite link to a meeting—embedded in a website, or even an email—which launches Zoom (even if you “removed” it). This joins you into a conference call and, by default, your webcam is on, which could create some awkward moments depending on what you’re up to." https://lifehacker.com/remove-zoom-from-your-mac-right-now-1836209383

Since I'm communicating with people who don't have Apple devices I can't use FaceTime (which is my default if possible). For a long time I used Skype which became worth than ever in recent updates, hangs for long times and last time even screwup my builtin MPB camera (I had to reset the computer to revive the camera). I switched to zoom which fits me in the sense that the video meetings are prescheduled (or set up via email or text) and particularly since people can't just "call me" anytime while I'm "online". I tried it only in one-on-one meetings and aside from a one time that it froze, the communication was excellent.

This excellent app is ideal for online meetings/classrooms for 50 (or more) participants. It's not a Skype look-a-like and doesn't try to be. Unlike Skype, you are not shown a user's online status and so cannot just call them for a chat. Instead, meetings have to be pre-arranged for a specific time when the host is online in his/her virtual room.

The host has various controls over participants' activity e.g. the host can mute or activate a participant's sound or video. Any participant can send a note to any other participant or can share their screen and use various markup tools to annotate what is shown on-screen. With the host's permission, participants can activate the inbuilt record button to record the meeting.

Sound and video quality are excellent, although sound quality suffers the more people have their mics active, so it's best to keep mics muted when not in use.

The app is free, but sessions are limited to 40 mins. To remove time limits the host needs to buy a pro account (currently about $150 per year). The app remains free for all other participants and there are versions for iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

(MacUpdate is not showing the latest version. An update to 4.0.29656.0413 was released April 13, 2017)
