Thanks, yes, that is one of the ways I tried to join the zoom meeting on my 
Jessie system -- the client says it requires / works with Debian 8.0 (i.e., 
Jessie) but I might also try it on Buster.

I do have a followup question after the aside.

I have a zoom client on my Wheezy system, some 3.nn version, but the meeting I 
tried to join said I needed version 5.nn, which apparently cannot be installed 
on Wheezy.

I tried joining the meeting with both the Linux client and Firefox, both gave 
me video but neither gave me sound.

At some point I'll try Chromium (I think zoom has a test meeting that I can 
join to try out)

Can you give me any clues about how you told it which audio device to use (and 
which you told it to use)?
