I contacted the zoom support on 13th July 2016 and tried to lure them into creating a proper PKGBUILD respectively adopting this one, considering they are providing a package over very none standard ways to the Arch Linux community (downloading via a *foreign* site) and not through the official repo or the AUR. However there was little to no progress so far.

Thanks for the update. I changed the pkgver back to the current release. Please be sure to remove the remaining source in your SRCDEST if necessary.

@edh: Upstream updated now, acc. to Zoom support ...

Their package file seams to be corrupted. I will roll back for now. Please be sure to file a bug on their website.

The v4l2loopback kernel module appears to be required for Desktop (not application window) sharing.

@edh Screen capture has stopped working only with wayland (i.e. GNOME). Xorg works but generally crashes. I had those extra packages installed already and the new package has not fixed the issue. Most likely this is an upstream problem.

I can not reproduce your problem. The packages I build all have 755 as permission settings for the listed directory.
Furthermore I would recommend against changing the mode bits of those directories since 755 is used by probably all other packages. Please try building the package yourself without an AUR helper. Should this still not work build without cleaning up the pkg directory, change the permissions there and then repackage. The last recommendation is a little tricky but should work for sure.

I've been getting a series of permissions errors when I try installing the latest update. It says that my filesystem is using 755 and the package wants 775. Is it safe to change the permissions in the directories listed?

AFAIK there is no difference between the two packages. Therefore one should not be superior to the other. The PKGBUILD originated from a time when there was no Arch package available and has since been kept to ease installation (see the pinned comment).
However I agree that it would be best to use the provided package from their website. Though this will undoubtedly make for a pretty odd PKGBUILD.

I don't see any advantage to downloading the deb version from their website, unpacking it, repacking it into pkg.tar.xz, and then installing that, when Zoom already provides a pkg.tar.xz version made for Arch at the very same website. If you really want a PKGBUILD up here, wouldn't it be better to at least use the Arch package as the source? I feel more comfortable downloading the correct version from their site.
