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
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)?
