New vHerf (Zoom)

We're switching to Zoom for the vHerf effective immediately. The Google Hangouts links will still work, but we'll be on Zoom because the performance is better and it has better features.

We set it up so that you can join at any time, like the old Google Hangouts vHerf using a link or the meeting number and password.

If you're joining on a mobile device, you'll need to download and install the Zoom app (but you don't need to create an account), but if you're on a computer you can skip this step and just join Zoom from a browser window (after clicking through a few more steps). Joining from your browser window works best on Google Chrome.

Here's the Zoom Link: HERE

The meeting number is 2619860114 or 261-986-0114 and the meeting password is vHerf2020 You can join the meeting from the Zoom website or the app by typing in this meeting number and password if you don't want to use the link.

Meeting Number 2619860114
Password vHerf2020

If you're using the app, you may need to click ** Call via Device Audio** to be able or on a computer click "Connect Computer Audio" to be able to hear and be heard on the vHerf.

I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    In the corner case where you're running a Windows computer in S-Mode and you don't want to take it out of S-Mode, you can follow the instructions below to allow audio to work in the Edge browser. Link to the website where I found these Instructions

    You'll need to upgrade your Edge browser to the newest version, which is based on Chrome. Your Windows 10 computer in S-Mode will allow this installation.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge

    Once you've upgraded Edge, then you can install an extension that will tell websites you're using Chrome, even though you're using Edge. Since the new Edge is based on Chromium, the same engine behind Google Chrome, Zoom works perfectly. (and so does my daughter's SmartMusic.com site that requires Chrome too)

    The extension is called User-Agent Switcher and is here:

    https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/detail/ipacohcfiahhblhbpdnnmnolcakgooci?hl=en-US

    Install the extension, and you'll see a new icon in the top right area of Edge. You can click it, and select Chrome from the second row of choices.

    Refresh the Zoom window and it should work!

    Just hopped on such to check it out and stubble was checking in as well. Worked great for the minute we were on.

    This is, in my non professional opinion, a much better platform.

    You freaking rock Chris, and since you ended your buying freeze, you must be getting low. My missiles have been redirected to your vector.

    Dropped in for a minute--terrifying. Deer-in-the-headlights syndrome for me, same things happen on a phone for me. Anyway, good to see Chris briefly. Autism sucks.

    Sorry I missed you Edward.
    I am actually much nicer in person. 😀

    Tell them to put their clothes back on. No one needs to see that.

    I'll have to take a look one of these days.
    I'm not a fan of video chats, cause I have AD look there goes a rabbit HD and can't hardly sit still for very long. On a video chat, that means moving things around.

    @Yakster Does it cost or is it a free service?

    Will it work without a camera?
    No camera on my confuser. Besides, no one wants to see this ugly face.

    Awesome. Thanks for doing the leg work on this Chris. I'll try to figure it out sometime this weekend.

  • 0patience0patience Oregon CoastPosts: 9,582 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It works really well, especially since my computer doesn't have a camera. LOL!
    Next time I'll have to either use the tablet or laptop, if I can find them.

    I checked it out and everything seemed to work okay. Maybe I can join when I have the time finally, because I really disliked Google.
