For anyone using a pre-April 2020 version of Zoom so that they can still use ManyCam as a virtual camera on their Macs, Zoom just announced today that Zoom 5.0 will be a forced upgrade for anyone wanting to join a meeting that employs the new encryption.
I’m new to both Zoom and ManyCam, so I don’t know if there’s a workaround or planned update that will allow me to use ManyCam with Zoom Webinar. But my current workaround, running a March version of Zoom, won’t work past May.
Here’s the text of their announcement:
Dear Valued Customer,
