A noobie making a suggestion? :O Blasphemy!
« on: October 31, 2006, 02:37:12 pm »
I thought this could be an interesting idea. There is a program that people use to have voice chat online, called Ventrilo. Many users who play MMO computer games use Vent because of it's simplicity and ability to run minimized. Ventrilo is a popular proprietary Voice over IP program for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Most users of Ventrilo use a headset or microphone and use the program to talk freely to each other, similar to a telephone conference call.

An example of Vent's layout:


I'm not exactly sure how much bandwidth it would take off the server, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be all that much.

This is just a suggestion, so don't feel as if I'm forcing this. :D I just think it would be neat to hold nightly/weekly voice chats.

If any of you guys are interested more information can be found on Wikipedia and on their official website.

Sounds interesting.
If I had better privacy and a working soundcard I'd want to try it out.

If I had a microphone I'd so try it out too. I need to buy one again.

I like the sound of that although... I am self conscious about my accent so maybe not for me, but it would be a good program to use if you have a PC in your own room etc...

XD Blasphemy indeed young Taren! But we love getting suggestions from everyone. ^^

I'll get that as soon as I get a microphone, then everyone can suffer the stress that is listening to me talk.

I bet it will be fun listening to a big rammy, although trying to hold a conversation will be VERY hard.

That's probably an understatement judging by the imvu chats. Espesially considering we would have to listen to each other as oposed to read.

Actually, I've used it before, and I was very impressed. It's designed for using with games and so takes up very little computer processing power. Not sure what happens server sid, but yeh, it's a good idea.

{This is the server owner, btw}

Sounds like an interesting idea, but unfortunately, I don't have the necessary system access to install it on the Lupinia server.

I use Skype most often.

I have used both Vent and Teamspeak for WoW. If you get one going I'd totally use it though.

LOL Blasphemy indeed. I use MSN most and Trillian, when I have my own PC that is. But Skype is alright from what I remember of it. Although I find MSNs server perfectly fine for voice chat.

I just use Yahoo. I don't really feel like downloading more messenger programs. If you want to talk to me and you don't have Yahoo, e-mail me.

That's fair enough though Flinch I can understand that. Though I guess if you wanted to use more than 1 messenger program you could use Trillian as that uses most messengers on one program.

I just don't like the fact that to use web camera's and microphones you need to buy the pro version. It's quite sad actually.

It's because they not only want to steal you money, but your face and your voice! AH!
I've never used trillian before... does that make me stupid?

Not really XP if you wanted to be labeled stupid because of that then alot of other members would get that title too XP and ya once they start charging I am finding a different service to use that is free XP
