Zoom repeatedly crashes Computer

Just when I thought I was in the clear…


My system crashed again during another Zoom meeting… twice.
It’s been a long time since I had my system crash on an application that wasn’t Zoom, and I have no clue why. I’ve had almost no problems running games on the same OS, which is even more perplexing.
I think the only pattern I can find between all my driver crashes is that they happen whenever I use Zoom, (which is why I decided to start a new topic)
…Any ideas as to why Zoom is always crashing my system?
Right now I’m using the AUR Zoom package, on version 5.0.408598.0517-1

Seems to just be an ongoing thing with zoom

Doesn’t seem to be any fixes around aside from just making sure everything is up to date.

Can try looking into logs but based on what I’ve seen elsewhere they’ll be little use.

OK then, maybe I can try uninstalling Zoom and using the online-only version?
At least I’ve finally narrowed down the cause of my problem :smiley:
