On the assumption that there will be a lot more videoconferencing going on in the near future, I put together a docker image containing skype, zoom, and wire, so that you can run them inside a container and have a little less worry about the random binaries.
I made this to run on Ubuntu 18.04, but you may have luck with other platforms as well.
git clone https://github.com/mviereck/x11docker
x11docker/x11dockerinto some directory in your $PATH
apt install nxagent
vidcdockersomewhere in your $PATH
vidcdockerwill start the docker image and launch an xterminal in that docker. Your webcam and pulseaudio will be connected to that xterminal. From that terminal, you can run
zoom. Exiting the terminal will terminate the docker container.
