How does it work?
ZoomOSC uses the OSC (Open Sound Control) protocol to receive commands and control the Zoom client. In additional, the application provides OSC output for meeting status, participant data, gallery order/position, chat messages, and more.
What can you do with ZoomOSC?
Use a Hardware Controller with Zoom
ZoomOSC exposes Zoom meeting features like pinning, spotlighting, video on/off, screensharing and more through OSC messaging. This allows you to use OSC applications and hardware to create custom control surfaces for Zoom. Create your own or try out some community made integrations.

Integrate with OSC Applications for Linear Cueing, Advanced control
Automation increases reliability, giving you the confidence to build shows around complicated sequences of events. For the first time, implement rapid pinning, participant management, automated chat, and other powerful meeting commands into your production flow.
ZoomOSC is for
OSC Commands are Intuitive to Understand
The ZoomOSC API uses a clear format for ease of use; you don't need to be a programmer to start sending commands and building your own integrations!
...pin Lisa by username
...turn off all panelists' video
...change my mic to the 3rd device
Using the user group commands, create sequences of multi-participant pins and spot. Press one button to bring up 3 participants, then press another to switch to 5 new participants; all natively in Zoom.
Use Multi-Pin and Multi-Spot to create Super Sources
OSC Meeting Feedback gives Reactive Control to Integrators
ZoomOSC provides real-time OSC output for participant actions (ie. muting, raising hand) as well as meeting status information. With this data, integrators can drive functions with participant usernames, gallery positions, active speakers, and more.
