How to embed Zoom Video Conferencing into Joomla?

Post by jgkiefer » Fri Apr 24, 2020 2:42 pm

I would like to embed Zoom meetings into Joomla. I am not able to find anything on this. I am thinking it is super easy (and I am missing it) or it is already done. Wordpress has a plugin for it so I am assuming Joomla does too. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Joomla doesn't have one.....but then Zoom is a desktop client (or browser plugin), how would it work in Joomla?

Just searching for "embed zoom in website" brings up results, but they are pretty technical and complicated, nothing simple like a joomla extension.

A zoom extension for Joomla would be pretty nice.

This might help you get started- https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/sdk/native-sdks/web
or this- https://devforum.zoom.us/t/embed-zoom-v ... er/2882/91

RSForm!Pro now has a zoom integration plugin for Joomla. More information at https://www.rsjoomla.com/blog/view/503- ... ation.html

I'm confused. Does this plugin actually display the zoom meeting and chat or is it just a from for registering or signing up for zoom chat? Is there a demo?

Good question. I had just assumed that it would display the zoom meeting, but now I'm not so sure. It seems like it might only populate a link and pw.

I've sent them an email asking them to verify. I will post on here when I get an update.

Sorry for the slow reply. They got back to me ages ago, but I was busy at the time and then forgot.
Here is their response-
Hello,

The integration between RSForm!Pro and Zoom was designed to allow users from your site to register to your Zoom meeting, the actual meeting will take place through the Zoom platform.

When configuring the plugin you will need to select the Zoom meeting that users will be registered to, this will also enable the two following placeholders that can be used in the RSForm!Pro emails and thank you message:

{zoom_join_url} - this will return the Zoom meeting join URL
{zoom_password} - this will return the password required to join the selected meeting

The full documentation article for this integration can be found here:
https://www.rsjoomla.com/support/docume ... forms.html

How about addin zoom to jevent?
I´m using jticketing that uses jevent, where I can manage online venues but only with adobe connect. Do you have any idea how I can integrate zoom as an online venue? I only need to show the URL of zoom and the password once the ticket is bought

Unfortunately this isn't a solution to the question, but it's related so posting here.

There is a new extension similar to the RSForm!Pro zoom integration plugin called Zoom for VikAppointments. It helps you manage appointments sold via their booking/appointments software- https://extensionsforjoomla.com/compone ... s-zoom-e4j

Here's hoping that with the increase in these types of products an actual web based zoom video conferencing solution for Joomla comes out.

UPDATE: The Zoom for VikAppointments extension might actually be the closest solution so far. While playing with the demo, I was able to start the meeting from my browser via the included plugin.
https://extensionsforjoomla.com/livedem ... -with-zoom

Just make sure to book something as close to today's actual date as possible to see it in action.
Login: demo
Password: demo
I chose the "Pay on Arrival" option to complete the actual demo booking.

@guidolombardi I believe Techjoomla have just recently implemented some sort of solution for JTicketing. Not sure if it solves your issue though. Info at https://techjoomla.com/blog/JTicketing/ ... -much-more
