    Well today yahoo did server maintenance and voice stopped working for me:

    Our voice and video services will be unavailable on Wednesday, May 11th between 2:30 to 4:30pm PST, due to network maintenance . During this period, you will not be able to use Yahoo! Messenger to make or receive voice and video calls, and may experience a slower than usual response. This is one step towards improving the performance of our services and your continued patience is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
    Yahoo! Messenger Team

    So what i did was do an nslookup to "vc.voice.yahoo.com" and got 68.180.210.251added that IP to the end of the list in ~/gyachi/gyvoice/voice_servers  file, and recompiled.  That seems to work for now

    hmm works here, what if you add just  "vc.voice.yahoo.com" instead of the IP?

    btw, so I take the voice fails for you after the maintenance?

    68.180.210.251 # vc.voice.yahoo.com did the trick for me: got sound back. Thanks Mark!

    tqf:
    Please notice that the ip number is 68.180.210.251 and NOT 68.180.210.25 like you typed above.
    I have to admit I made the same mistake and can assure you that 68.180.210.25 isn't working!

    regards,

    Henk.

    68.180.210.34 # v2.vc.sp1.yahoo.com
    68.180.210.116 # v3.vc.sp1.yahoo.com
    68.180.210.118 # v4.vc.sp1.yahoo.com
    68.180.210.136 # v5.vc.sp1.yahoo.com
    68.180.210.152 # v6.vc.sp1.yahoo.com
