Zoom Web SDK

The Web Meeting SDK enables the development of video applications powered by Zoom’s core framework inside an HTML5 web client through a highly optimized WebAssembly module.

As an extension of the Zoom browser client, this SDK is intended for implementations where the end user has a low-bandwidth environment, is behind a network firewall, or has restrictions on their machine which would prevent them from installing the Zoom Desktop or Mobile Clients.

Component view

The Component view provides the option to display the Web Meeting SDK in components on your page. This allows for a more flexible design.

Client view

The Client view provides the option to display the Web Meeting SDK as a full page. This allows for a familiar Zoom Meeting experince because the Client View is the same as the Zoom Web Client, except it lives inside your own web page.

Browser support

The browser support of the Web SDK directly reflects that of the Zoom Web Client.

For a full guide to Zoom Web Client browser support, reference the Zoom Web Client Support page.

Performance Limits

Currently, the Zoom Web SDK encodes at a maximum resolution of 360p. If a user is in a meeting with both native and browser clients, the browser client video displayed within the native client will be of lower quality due to encoding limitations.
