Why does everyone like Zoom.us?

Post by StephenJondrew » Wed Apr 05, 2017 10:29 am

I've noticed in recent months a lot of people are enjoying Zoom.us and I'm trying to understand why. Originally I heard several podcasts where they used samples from a Zoom recording and the audio was noticeably degraded.

Seeing the buzz I thought I'd try it myself and I was just disappointed with the experience. I had to install desktop software, and eve on HD mode, it sounded not very good. Is there a feature I'm just missing that is making everyone like this? I'm asking because at this point I can't recommend the service, but I'm hoping y'all can help enlighten me.

The reason Zoom.us has bad audio quality is that it is 32 khz. But the quality is not terrible, so It would work great for a round table with everybody recording their own audio.
