If you are using vMix with Zoom, you might want to be cautious about updating to the current windows client. It is not playing well with vMix on my computer.

I updated Zoom to the current version about 2 hours before starting a session on Wednesday.
During the meeting, the session window was very very slow to respond. Task manager showed very high system interrupt usage, pinned CPU at 100%.
Clicking on anything in the session window was very delayed before responding.
Fortunately most of my session was a screen share, which was unaffected.
This was Version: 4.6.0 (13610.1201)
I did various reboots, shutdown, windows updates, etc... the symptom persisted.


I spoke to one of Zoom's support folk, he finally sent me an installer for the previous version and the clean_zoom.exe that removes zoom completely, facilitating a clean install.
After running clean and reinstalling the most recent version, the symptoms reappeared.
So I ran clean again, and installed the older Version: 4.5.7 (5712.1029). That worked fine.

However, I did come across an important piece of information... when doing a clean install, Zoom picked my logitech c920 camera by default, and everything was working properly. However, the symptoms reappeared as soon as I selected vMix as Zoom's video input.

So it appears that the new version is working properly with physical cameras, but is choking on my virtual camera... Vmix.
I don't know if the issue is limited to vMix or if it affects other virtual cameras.

When I contacted Zoom again with the information about the virtual camera, they opened a support case nd sent me a logging version of Zoom.
I ran a few tests (which choked on vMix) and uploaded the logs to them.

I will let you know if I get any more information from Zoom.

Curious. I just loaded the latest Zoom client and tried this myself. It seems to work ok using the latest vMix 23 beta.

Zoom 4.6 client using vMix 23 Beta, 2-box, color bars & Brio webcam

The vMix project is set for 720P30, which is all that Zoom can handle. The shot is a 2-box, with color bars and Brio webcam over black.

You can enable HD in Zoom (as well as stereo).

I send full HD 1920x1080 NTSC 29.97p

MJ,

I tried it with vMix 22 and 23 with the same results. Are you using the same Zoom version that I mentioned in my original message?
The log files from the instrumented version Zoom sent me showed several internal crashes.

I haven’t heard anything new from them yet.

I had the same sort of problem. All I got was white screen on my Zoom capture input after upgrading to the newest version of Zoom. Then my system started lagging bad after that. I will uninstall Zoom completely and reinstall my earlier copy of Zoom. I am using VMix 23 with the newest update. Thanks for the info in the initial post here.
