Zoom - Audio/Video Settings in a Zoom Meeting

This document will show you how to enabled/disable your microphone and camera and change their settings.

Join Audio

After you've entered your meeting (see "Zoom - User's Guide" for starting/scheduling a meeting) a window will pop up asking you how you want to join the conference.

  • Join by Computer Audio

    To use the computer microphone (if applicable) and speakers click on "Computer Audio" and then "Join Audio Conference by Computer".



  • Join by Phone

    To use your phone click on "Phone Call" and then dial the number listed.  In the phone call you will be prompted to enter the "Meeting ID" and "Participant ID".

Note: If you need to join in later you can get back to this screen by click "Join Audio" in the bottom left corner of the Zoom meeting.



Mute Microphone

In your Zoom meeting, click on the "Mute" icon in the bottom left corner.


Unmute Microphone

In your Zoom meeting, click on the "Unmute" icon in the bottom left corner.


Change Microphone

Sometimes you may need to switch the microphone that is being used.  For example, if you are using a laptop that has a built in microphone and you plug in a higher quality microphone you will want to switch to that one.

In your Zoom meeting, click on the "^" icon in the bottom left corner next to the microphone.  Under "Select a Microphone" click the microphone you want.



Start Video

By default you will join the meeting with your video connected unless otherwise set by the presenter.

In your Zoom meeting, click on the "Start Video" icon in the bottom left corner.




Stop Video

In your Zoom meeting, click on the "Stop Video" icon in the bottom left corner.




Change Camera

Sometimes you may need to switch the camera that is being used.  For example, if you are using a laptop that has a built in webcam and you plug in a higher quality webcam you will want to switch to that one.

In your Zoom meeting, click on the "^" icon in the bottom left corner next to the camera.  Under "Select a Camera" click the camera you want.
