This is a proof of concept/spike I have been working to make the process of connecting Zoom to KHConf automated. My idea is to have this running as an AWS Lambda for easy deployment and use a schedule to get the service connected behind the scenes automatically.
Benefits of using this integration of Zoom and KHConf are
- KHConf users can also be added to breakout rooms and listen in
- There is no “Live streaming to custom service” message on Zoom clients screens
- No need for the Zoom meeting host to remember to connect the live streaming service
As Zoom charges for a SIP connector, we have to use a traditional phone line so the fees are higher than I would like. I decided to use Twilio as the service provider in the middle as they had a well documented API. It didn’t take much time to create a solution in TypeScript using their NodeJs library.
