Ask questions[Feature Request] Support for Zoom

Zoom is a video conferencing/screen sharing application used by a number of companies. Right now Zoom works perfectly fine in sway except for screen sharing. When you attempt to share a screen in sway, nothing is listed on the list of possible things to share. This is possibly the only issue I have with sway right now that would prevent me from using it full time at my current job.

Zoom's screen sharing works on GNOME wayland (I'm guessing due to some specific wayland protocol). I am aware that sway has also implemented a way to perform screen sharing (based on this issue and so i thought I would open up an issue to see how hard it would be to make this also work for Zoom.

To be clear, I am 100% aware that Zoom is a closed source application which makes it very hard for you guys to do anything. But I was hoping that perhaps the protocol implemented in sway was similar enough to that found in GNOME that we could get this working with some configuration.

@MichaelAquilina Could you please let me know how you made it work at all (even without screen sharing?)

I get This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland-egl" when trying to start it.

For me it also is the only "must-have" left to completely switch to sway :/
