Zoom crashes with "Aw, Snap!" message on Chromium
« on: September 23, 2020, 08:43:26 am »
Hi All,

I've managed to use Zoom conferences on Chromium but it stopped working and display this annoying error when I try to join with audio from the computer.

On Firefox I can see what's going on in the meeting but it does not let me join with audio and displays a message my browser does not support it and suggests that I use Chrome or Firefox (weird to see this when using Firefox) instead.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

There is a test site at

I found it working from Debian / Firefox 78 on an x86 system

Using Debian / Firefox 78 on ppc64le, it gives the error about audio not being supported

I installed the User-Agent switcher plugin on the ppc64le system and tried changing the UA string to include x86_64, pretending to be x86.  This didn't work.

If JavaScript code checks the User-Agent (UA) string, does the User-Agent switcher plugin intervene correctly?

Is there anything else Zoom could be checking?
