How to attend a Colibri event without installing the Zoom application

ESOP warned of to the lack of freedom of choice, the impacts on citizens' computer security and the possible failure of the FCCN to comply with the Open Standards Law by allowing the Colibri platform, used in public academic events, to not explain how we can participate in these events without installing a proprietary application that has already had security problems

The tutorial they provide (attend the meeting via browser) is not correct, and even following the suggested steps, it is not possible to access the events.

However, this possibility exists and for that ESOP prepared this tutorial that explains in three steps how to watch or participate in a Colibri event without installing the Zoom application.
