hmmm... I still get a black screen for video without the LD_PRELOAD workaround, even after the latest update. Anyone else, or am I the only one?

EDIT: Interestingly, if I instead rm -f{,.*} as was originally suggested by @mnabid and use the bundled, it works.

Thanks @mnabid. I've implemented that patch in the latest release. It worked for me so that makes three out of three of us. If it turns out to be a problem later if versions stop being compatible or whatever we can try reverting.

I can confirm that mnbaid 's fix solved my webcam issue. Also, the LD_PRELOAD workaround caused me to loose the ability to open zoom links from the browser, which works well with the fix as well.

Thank you!

Since my last comment, I thought it makes more sense if we use the system (as zoom-system-qt uses system Qt libraries instead of the provided ones).

@caleb, here are the changes I made.

If anybody is still annoyed about the webcam issue, here's another workaround (no v4l2 or LD_PRELOAD stuff :D):

  1. Remove the following line from PKGBUILD:
rm -f{,.*}
  1. Rebuild and install (makepkg -sifc).

Thanks to this bug ticket from Gentoo.

For those with issues getting the webcam to work, I did the LD_PRELOAD trick and it works, but only if I do not enable HD video.

@NICHOLAS85 The qt5-graphicaleffects packages is already listed as a dependency.

NICHOLAS85 commented on 2020-07-07 18:16

Seems to be missing the dependency "qt5-graphicaleffects" in order to install.

I have no problem with video (Dell XPS 9560) with this package, but for me Zoom crashes every time when I leave breakout session to return to the main session. The only additional information about the crash I found in ~/.zoom/logs/zoom_stdout_stderr.log:

Something went wrong while running zoom,exit code is 141.

Hi there, I had also issues trying to get my webcam (logitech HD Pro Webcam C920). I tried the suggested "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/" workaround but to no avail. As somewhat of a Linux newbie I got a bit fed up of trying and failing so installed the non-qt version here on aur. It works with my webcam 'out of the box'. Wonder if that bug in Qt that might explain the difference.
