Zoom Meeting Controls Freeze When Participants Enter


When I am host for a meeting, everything works fine when I start the meeting.  However, as participants enter the meeting, my Zoom controls freeze for several minutes.  Most of the time they just unfreeze on their own, but other times I need to leave and re-enter the meeting.  This freeze can happen even if someone enters the waiting room.

  • I always check to make sure my Zoom is up to date
    • I cannot always confirm whether all participants have their Zoom up to date
  • This happens whether I am using a free account or paid account
  • I run Windows 11 and it is up to date
  • I use a virtual camera with OBS
  • I have two monitors and I extend the desktop
  • I use the dual monitors feature in Zoom
  • This happens whether I am using a headset or computer speakers
  • Processor:  AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor
  • 16 GB RAM
  • Internet speed is not an issue
