 Zoom will be releasing an update to the Mac OSX application to allow users to adjust their application settings and easily disable the appropriate video broadcast options during setup.  In the interim, please disable this feature if you have Zoom.us installed on a Mac computer by opening the application preferences and checking the video setting for “Turn off my video when joining a meeting.”
