Home/Zoom WordPress Plugin

Zoom WordPress Plugin (Free Download)

Create your Zoom meetings from the WordPress dashboard and conduct meetings directly on your WordPress page by simply using a shortcode. The Zoom WordPress plugin gives you the ability to conduct on-site Zoom meetings without the need for downloading the Zoom App.
Note: This Zoom WordPress plugin is not similar to Video Conferencing with Zoom API developed by Deepen Bajracharya. This is an extended version and you must disable the previous one to avoid any conflict errors.

Now let’s dig into the features that are bundled with Zoom WordPress plugin

1) Zoom Video Conference on WordPress page

This plugin allows your website users to join the meeting straight from your WordPress page. The plugin provides a Zoom App link and an alternative join from browser link above the Zoom window in case, the Zoom window doesn’t work for a user on their specific device or browser. Check the limitations of the plugin for more info. You can use this shortcode to embed the Zoom window on any page/post
[zoom_api_link meeting_id="your_meeting_id_here" title="Your page title"]

Note:
The buttons above the Zoom window on frontend can be hidden via the plugin settings option under Zoom Meetings -> Settings.

2) Meeting countdown

You can schedule your Zoom meetings from the WordPress dashboard via this plugin and users will see a countdown timer on the page where the shortcode is added before the meeting starts.

FAQs

How do I disable google recaptach and header inside Zoom window2020-06-03T16:40:41+05:00

The Recaptcha can not be disabled as it is directly coming from Zoom. The header can be turned to a mobile header with fewer elements if the window size is reduced from the settings globally(Zoom Meetings -> Settings -> Change Dimensions of Zoom Meeting Window) or directly from the shortcode.

Is it possible to create recurring meeting2020-05-13T01:56:08+05:00

No, this feature is not yet provided in this plugin. However, you can create a recurring meeting from your Zoom account under meetings.

Is meeting gallery view supported in this plugin2020-05-13T01:54:55+05:00

No, Zoom does not allow the gallery view in the web version of Zoom. It’s only possible to use this feature via the Zoom App

Zoom windows says The server encountered an internal error and was unable to process your request. Error 30012020-03-21T00:21:15+05:00

This error usually points to more than one Zoom meeting windows opened at a time in the browser. If you see this error make sure there is only one tab in your browser that opens the Zoom meeting window and refresh the page again after closing additional tabs.

How to protect the Zoom meeting page access2020-03-20T04:30:40+05:00
  1. You can add the shortcode on a protected page that only your paid members can access. This can be achieved via a membership plugin in WordPress.
  2. You can add the shortcode on a page that is only accessible to users once they make a payment on your site. This can be achieved in multiple ways via a shopping cart plugin.
Audio/Video not working in Zoom meeting2020-03-20T04:22:40+05:00

How to resize Zoom window displayed by the shortcode2020-04-30T17:39:52+05:00

Change the width and height of the Zoom window according to your preference.

How many participants can join the meeting using this plugin2020-03-13T20:33:08+05:00

The no.of participants depend on your Zoom account type and not the plugin. The Basic(free) account type allows up to a max of 100 participants in one meeting.

Will this plugin slow down the site or requires any additional server resources2020-03-12T14:31:18+05:00

No, it won’t slow your site because it is not using the resources of your server rather showing the meeting window directly from Zoom.

The plugin displays a meeting link and not the Zoom window as shown in screenshots2020-03-12T14:30:12+05:00

Please note that Zoom Integration With WordPress is an extended version of the free plugin Video Conferencing with Zoom API by Deepen Bajracharya which shows a Zoom meeting link instead of the embedded Zoom window. Please deactivate this plugin and install my addon from here. You need to check out from the site to download this addon.

I am getting a fatal error with your Zoom plugin: Fatal error: Cannot declare class Video_Conferencing_With_Zoom, because the name is already in use

Are you using this plugin along with the Zoom plugin? If so, please disable it first, as this plugin is an extended version of Video Conferencing with Zoom API and cannot be used together with it.

Adeel is beyond awesome!

Adeel is beyond awesome! He is the most responsive developer of a free plugin I have ever seen and knows what he is doing. He has released more releases in one week of a plugin than most people do in years.

I can’t wait to keep working with him and I encourage everyone to support the development of his plugin to make sure that his hard work and dedication and just pure skill are rewarded and compensated.

Thank you Adeel for everything you do for us!

That's what you need

You like to do Zoom Calls?
You would like to use Zoom inside your Membership Areas with your Customers?
Then I have good news for you!
The WordPress Plugin “Zoom Video Conferencing on WordPress” makes it possible.
You think it is complicated to configure the settings? No it is very easy.

There are only some steps in the configuration. After that you can easy create zoom calls inside your WordPress Admin Panel. There you create a WordPress Shortcode that you paste in your protected Page inside your WordPress Membership (or anywhere else on your Website).

All Members doesn’t have to install zoom. Everything is possible on your website.
If you now ask yourself how much you must pay for that great and helpful plugin, then I ask you at first:
How much would you pay, if you have an easy way to do live Webinars with one or more of your Members in the easy way?
I think it is priceless!

The good news: It does not cost you anything.
So give it a try ;-)

Great addition to any business WP based website

Just a quick note that I downloaded and tried Adeel Raza Zoom Integration plugin, and it works perfect.

I had some issues with its settings (mainly because of me), and Adeel was very helpful, and even updated the plugin on the go to fit my needs (RTL support and Hebrew translation, that I sent him).

I started offering this plugin to my clients, and they are very keen about it.

Great job here, Adeel

Pretty clever

Keeps people inside your site instead of directing them away to the zoom site - for me that's a great feature

    It seems that with this plug in, when a user tries to join a meeting bith the web client he/she is forced to login to zoom.us, even if the meeting is not only for authenticated users.
    Is that your choiche? Am I doing something wrong? Can this be changed?

  3. frank 15th April 2020 at 9:09 pm - Reply

    Does this allow for 1. creation of recurring meetings and 2. decent display of recurring meetings (so that expired meeting either disappear of sit below the next upcoming one)?

    thanks

      This is not supported in the plugin right now.

    “ALERT: Audio and Video for Zoom meeting will not work on a non HTTPS site, please install a valid SSL certificate on your site to allow participants use audio and video during Zoom meeting:”

    Good Evening Adeel,

    Does your product allow for multiple zoom accounts, lets say that I have 5 teachers on my membership website and each launches zoom sessions simultaneously?
