I concur.  Zoom stinks on ice.

Unfortunately, I've investigated about half a dozrn different VTC
packages for Linux and they *all* suck. Terrible UI, random flaky
failures to share video...these are routine.

The least bad, so far, seems to be  Bet even that can
get confused about whether can see your webcam - I've several times
