Help Installing "Zoom" software

Mossaïque visioconférence

Zoom is a teleconferencing software. On the screen, you can see the other participants in a mosaic format.

If you are uncomfortable with technology, we invite you to join the sessions at the appointed times by following the practice on our Youtube channel.

[Updated on 25/03: technical adjustments are in progress for the alternative via Youtube. We invite you to prefer the connection with Zoom. Thank you for your understanding].

How to use Zoom:

Here is a helpful video [2'15"]
► The steps for installation and use are below

Click on this link: https://zoom.us/j/9150591497   or enter the meeting ID: 9150591497 (✔️ We do keep the same every day.)
New: following technical modifications by Zoom (beyond our control) you will be asked for a session password. This password will always remain the same: 042020 
(We recommend you connect using a computer rather than a smartphone or tablet)

A window will open in your web browser that says “Starting up.”

■ If it is your first time using Zoom, the software will automatically download. Simply click “start.”
Si el software no se descarga pasados unos minutos:
• Click on “Download and open Zoom.”
• Double click on the Zoom installation package at the bottom of your browser window or in your Download folder.
Follow the installation instructions.

■ Once you have installed the software:
• Zoom will open.
• If necessary, enter the meeting ID: 9150591497 
• Enter your nickname and click on "Connect".
• Click “Join with Computer Audio.”
• You can click “Stop Video” or “Start Video” as you wish—the button is at the bottom left of your Zoom window. This will either show your username or activate your webcam.
• There is no need to change the other parameters to enjoy the experience.

If you use Linux, you can simply follow this last procedure after downloading Zoom.

We do not recommend using your smartphone or tablet to connect. The experience is limited on these devices. However, if you choose to, after downloading the application, click “Join Audio” to hear the ritual.
