'Zoom' crawls in beowulf

hi, i installed 'Zoom' with binary package download from their website.  it seems the apps is extremely slow with video skipping and no sound.  The menu fonts are displayed extra large size on the screen.  I use an old MS webcam.

does anyone have similar problem with using Zoom in Beowulf?

Re: 'Zoom' crawls in beowulf

The Zoom .debs work fine for me under Debian buster, even when run in a (KVM) virtual machine. I would be surprised if Devuan beowulf behaved differently.

You should probably share the exact URL from which you downloaded the package so that we can confirm you have the correct version.

Do you see any error messages if you start Zoom from a terminal?

Re: 'Zoom' crawls in beowulf

Just as another data point.
I have Zoom installed, version 5.0.418682.0603 on a normal Beowulf installation. It installs in /opt. I have a old Logitech webcam (low res).
And it works fine.
I note that it seems to uses Qt. Could this be an issue?

Re: 'Zoom' crawls in beowulf

(never used zoom, but ) why are you running it with sudo permissions? zoom looks for configuration in /root/.config/ that seems wrong, just try running it as user :
$ zoom

Do you have PulseAudio installed?

If not, do you use apulse instead?; if so, you ned to launch your binary with apulse binary

Re: 'Zoom' crawls in beowulf

Comparing your output, running as root with mine as local user, in addition to the lack of pulseaudio (which I have) I also note that you don't seem to have a desktop:

Linux Client Version is 5.3.465578.0920
QSG_RENDER_LOOP is
XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP = ;   GDMSESSION =

whereas in mine:

Linux Client Version is 5.0.418682.0603
QSG_RENDER_LOOP is 
XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP = X-Cinnamon;   GDMSESSION = cinnamon

Also you've truncated the line that gives your PC spec. How much memory do you have? I have 8GiB. Zoom only seems to be using 57 MiB idling but I don't know how much it uses in a live session. I'd expect it would also use quite a bit of graphics memory.

Probably worth checking whether when zoom is active it's not driving you into using swap (disk) memory.

Don't run zoom as root, that's just silly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principle … _privilege

launching 'zoom' as regular user didn't work at first, but after a system reboot, i was able to launch the app from command line, no additional info was displayed once zoom was started from CLI though.

The issue remains:  live video in full screen mode lags, if i scaled it down, the video quality improves. and the menu as well as fonts display disproportionately large on the screen.

I was able to go into settings to get sound output once i logged in.

The system is a HP desktop with intel i7, 4G RAM, and nvidia 9300 video card.

Re: 'Zoom' crawls in beowulf

i don't think this is a problem for linux/devuan.. probably zoom related.. you might want to ask there for proprietary zoom support..
could be an issue with the old m$ webcam, the old video card, or connection related (?), or something other than that..
