Mumble is an open source, low-latency, high quality voice chat software primarily intended for use while gaming. It includes game linking, so voice from other players comes from the direction of their characters, and has echo cancellation so the sound from your loudspeakers won't be audible to other players.
- High quality, low latency Voice communication
- Efficient server software
- Free and Open Source - no hassle before or after setting up
- Powerful API through Ice middleware - for numerous programming languages
- Positional Audio in games - hear your teammates from the direction they stand in
- In-Application Overlay - see who is listening and talking in-game
Perfect ! I'm running a server of 50 active users (25ish each evening) and it works great ! It's easy to teach people about the use of it, and it always works. Even on pentium III ! No lag, even with a game and a shitty connexion, just perfect. And if one day its really bad connexion, just turn on the force TCP ! Perfect ! It's just a little bit too simple for Admins, I would like a bit more control (see ticket #1164)
Love the voice wizard setup. Sound quality is excellent.
Great program. Use it with group for 10 friends, does everything we need. Except a software based method of playing music so we can listen together. Overall well build, and I especially like the performance tuning options.
I love using this VoIP for when I play online with my friends. My only issue with it is that no matter what I do, I just cannot seem to get the overlay to work with WoW. I have the latest version downloaded to my computer and I've followed all directions I can find, but to no avail. It just will not work for me. Other than that, I really enjoy it and its ease of use.
Here to warn you all about the service "Cooked Porkchop" I rented a 50 slot server from "Cooked Porkchop" two days ago. They failed to e-mail me the proper setup instructions. People that connected were randomly muted, and others said the server was "hacked/bugged". I asked for a refund, because I was dissatisfied with the service. They refused to give me one. Mumble is a great service, just STAY AWAY from "Cooked Porkchop" at any cost. I am sure there are plenty of great service out there, "Cooked Porkchop" just wants your money, because they don't care if you are dissatisfied, they just want your money. As for mumble, mumble is pretty awesome.
