Zoom Admin gets logged out when joining a call




I am a Video Editor and use zoom the following way:


Computer 1: Blackmagic web Presenter feeds video signal into zoom. 


Computer 2: Muted, shows only my video so clients can see me. 


I have a paid account and set up the meeting on computer 1 and want to join on computer 2 as a participant. But always when I join with computer2 zoom is telling me that I will get logged out on computer1. The call continues, but I have some bad feeling about it. IS there any way to avoid this auto log out thing? Thx and best,

Hello Swild (Sebastian)!


Our apologies that this reply is coming so late, please note others have posted on the same issue within the Zoom Community and there is a URL below.


By default you are allowed per-user-account: One active Computer, one Tablet, and one Mobile device in use at any given time--logging on on computer 2 will log out computer 1 in your scenario, and this is by design.


The most direct route may be to get a 2nd account, or contact Zoom Sales to see whether alternative options may be available for your account. 


Here is our support article:
