Re: [MoP] Small victories on a small server

Mumble is realtime communication... and that is awesome. But there is more to set up in mumble... and the audio quality was a bit tinny for some... and downright robotic for others. It seems to have a smarter background noise filter so you could avoid PTT, but I couldn't mess with that since my wife (sitting right beside me) was in a different raid and she doesn't use headphones (can't really with toddlers).

If I thought I needed to actively micro-manage a raid encounter as the RL, I'd prefer Mumble over Vent. For now.. I'm okay with sticking with vent since there wasn't a clear benefit over vent for my guild.

Mumble is super easy to setup with the wizard and you don't get the delay that vent has.

Yarp...I don't even have to log into my guild's mumble.

I just log into the guild site and click the mumble link. With the mumble client downloaded, the program opens and puts you into the proper server automatically, it even uses your username from the website.

Is mumble free or does it come with server fees like vent?

My understanding is its free-er than vent.

You can run your own server or pay to rent a server.

from the ventrilo site.

Ventrilo is comprised of two parts: Server and Client.
Server 3.0 - Public version:

The public version of the Ventrilo 3.0 server can be used without a license fee, so long as you abide by the terms of the LICENSE. Each of the public servers contains a file named LICENSE and by downloading and running the server you are agreeing to the terms of this license.

Server 3.0 - Pro version:

The Pro version of the Ventrilo server can not be downloaded. It requires that we accept your application and that you sign and return the Ventrilo license. However, we do not license everyone.

In order for an applicant to be considered you must meet the following minimum requirements.

1) You must have a legitimate business license in your state, country or jurisdiction. Please be prepared to provide proof when requested.

2) You agree to a 1000 slot minimum. Slot counts greater then 1000 are billed at the per slot rate for the total number of slots hosted. Slot counts below 1000 are billed at the per slot rate with the required minimum of 1000 slots.

3) Licensee's slot counts are expected to grow on a regular basis.

We do not license individuals or businesses who wish only to run one or two standalone servers. In these cases you will need to rent a server from one of our official licensees on the hosting page.

If you do not meet these basic requirements then please contact us at sales@ventrilo.com to discuss other options.

If you do meet the basic requirements please send us an email at license@ventrilo.com and include the following information:

Business name.
Business address.
The full name of the business owner.
Your full name.
Your title in the company.
An official company phone number where you can be reached.
URL to company web site.
Official email contact address.
Number of employees.

Please include an explanation on how you intend to use the product and in what countries.

All license applications will be reviewed, however, due to the volume of applications we receive it may take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to process your request. It may take longer so please be patient.

Please note that not all applications will be approved.


All client programs come with a license that must be accepted before installation. This license details the requirements for it's use.

Previous versions:

Anyone who provides access to a Ventrilo server that is not version 3.0 is committing fraud.

Since all official licensee's are required to run the latest 3.0 Pro servers then any hosting company providing you access to an older version of the server is subject to legal action and punitive damages. This will include, but not limited to, contacting all state / federal law enforcement agencies and requesting their assistance in a fraud investigation. If they are outside of the United States then their respective countries / jurisdiction law enforcement agencies will be contacted.

For those people that use Windows or Linux based firewall's to connect their internal home LAN's with the Internet can setup a server on the firewall computer so that friends and family can connect to your server and talk for free.
