Agreed, as long as they send all the Mac users with them.

This is AWESOME!! I love it. So many fantastic backdrops to choose from. Heat from me. Thanks
Nice one
Nice
awesome
Great post thank you. I use both at work.

Does anyone know why Zoom needs a green background/beefy PC for Virtual backgrounds whereas Teams do not on the same PC?
Brilliant and really great to see the good old BBC innovation is still alive and well. Heat.
Fascinating find.
Hilarious

That’s strange zoom on Mac does not require a green screen even for animated backgrounds, however can’t find an option for a background on teams for Mac

You can select a background either a stock one in app or use your own ie one of these download - has an option to use own afterwards it remembers it for future use.
Just downloaded young ones set.. 42Mb jpg file?!? Won't that grind a video call to a halt while it loads up on folks systems?

Whoever hosts quizzes. Please let me know exactly you do it? Is there a feature on zoom to help? I do a weekly one with all my nephew and nieces but i literally just ask a question and see who moves first on the grid view and makes notes on a piece of paper.

I'm sure there must be easier ways? Am i missing something?

I have been using Star Wars scenes backgrounds for Teams, for the last few weeks. Starwars.com released some great stock images purely for this reason.
Dont use but brilliant, especially the porridge one.

Heaven forbid you disagree with the news.
Show me which actual facts BBC have said which are fake. Or is it just you don’t like how it’s said? Snowflake energy.
Great. Go to prison if you don't want to pay someone to make stupid zoom backgrounds.

I don't think they'll be able to fit them all on one flight.

It will take multiple trips to the center of the sun.

Won’t all the backgrounds make it look like you’re standing up?

Yep, this is brill!
This can be done in Microsoft teams too

... cant use backgrounds on zoom - asking for green screen?! ...


If your processor needs the job simplified, select Green Screen like it says, have a 'plain' (real) backround behind you, and after choosing a photo for background, you can select the (plainer the better) real background colour to apply the photo to.
The (real) backround doesn't have to be green, but Zoom will replace essentially one colour with the picture, so, the plainer (one colour) the real background the better.

A more powerful processor allows Zoom to do more. Even having up to 49 (instead of 25) nodding-off heads in Gallery View.
But what is nice about Zoom is that it does actually function pretty well even without the latest/greatest processor and ultrafibre broadband...

Zoom is made in China for that reason I’m out.
