Zoom Meetings and Webinars

Zoom meetings

Our Zoom SDK (Software Development Kit) allows you to integrate your Zoom webinar or meetings into Glisser. Before beginning, its certainly worth baring in mind that this link with Zoom currently has a more limited features  than a direct Zoom call. If you would like to use Glisser and Zoom natively (e.g. for gallery view) – you can add this as a related content link or, use an alternative platform such as Jitsi or BlueJeans.
