Voice Activation

    First of all congrats to your product. The idea aswell as the implementation is really nice.

    Only flaw i saw so far is the voice activation. I didn't find any way to configure the sensitivity and the one that is setup is so low that it makes it extremely hard to use it. The microphone even reacts on a small fingersnap far away from it which makes you hear people breath, chew, ...

    Push to talk is not an option for alot of my friends so it will be really hard to convince them of a good new programm, if voice activation doesn't work properly.

    Now my questions:
    1. Is there a way to configure voice activation without having to change the source-code.

    1. If not is it planned to add a Configuration for that problem.

    Best regards,

      I've looked a bit into this, and most problems related to voice activation can be remedied by following the audio tuning guide on the wiki.

      This being said, there is currently no way to change the VAD code in Speex without changing the code, but I'm in the process of doing exactly that to make it slightly more configurable.
