Zoom is an online video conferencing service which does not require an account to use. When clicking on the link, you will be prompted to download the Zoom Launcher, a bit of software which will run the session on your PC. If you are using a mobile device (tablet or smart phone) you will be prompted to download the Zoom app from either Google Play or the App store*. Please allow these installations and the meeting room will open. You may on occasion be shown an information box saying that you are waiting for the host to start the meeting. This just means that the meeting has not yet started and not that it isn’t working.
To use Zoom, you will need:
- An reasonable internet connection to stream live video
- Speakers or headphones
- and ideally a camera and microphone
Most laptops, and all tablets/ipads and smart phones will have these as standard.
If you already have a zoom account and are using your account to join the meeting by meeting id (and not clicking on the link), you will be prompted for a password; for the online dhama hall it is 229889 for the online sitting group it is 367244.
* If accessing on a smart phone/iphone or tablet/ipad, you will also be prompted to download the app from either Google Play or the Apple App Store. Using Google Play or the App Store, search for Zoom. It can also be downloaded from here, https://zoom.us/support/download
