- Question 1: iphone or android smartphone does not connect for the first time, what should i do?
Solution: Please install the “zoom cloud meeting” app manually from app store (apple) or play store (android). After this you can tap on the streaming link to connect.
- Question 2: Windows or MacOS does not connect the first time, what should i do?
Solution: People using zoom the first time (or who use a new device), click the streaming link and then see a browser window opening showing a website from zoom.us: There is a blue button “Create Meeting” and below is a Text link “Do you have zoom client installed? Download now“. Please ignore the button and klick the “Download now”.
- Question 3: Where is the Session-ID and Password?
Solution: After installing zoom client it asks for Session-ID and password to enter, but this is not necessary, as they are included in the streaming link. So please close zoom client when installed and click the streaming link again from our email. Now it should connect.
- Question 4: I don’t hear anything, what should i do?
When the Live-Stream is connected, at first there ist just a still picture and now sound. But when the teacher starts talking, and there is still no sound, the following should help:
Solution: on you smartphone / iphone tap on the headphone button labelled “join audio” in the lower left corner and choose “connect via internet call” – thus the sound will be transmitted via your internet connection.
We don’t suggest to choose “Dial” at this point, as with this option the audio signal can be transmitted with a regular phone call.
- Question 5: I have a Computer with Windows 10 S Mode and can not install Zoom, what can I do?
Solution: One way to participate in a Zoom meeting in Windows 10 S mode is via the web version. To do this, you must have the latest version of Microsoft Edge installed. Go to https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/edge and click on Download for Windows 10 and Install the new Edge browser.
Open the streaming link from our email with the new Microsoft Edge browser (or copy&paste the link into the browser’s address bar).
At first you will only see the message “If you don’t see a dialogue box, download Zoom and run it”. Wait a few seconds, then the text will update: “If you can’t download or run the application, join via your browser.” You can now log in and join the meeting. The streaming quality may be not as good as with the zoom client software, but it should be OK.
