Description [fr]

Un client Linux pour les serveurs Ventrilo, permettant le chat vocal (ou Voip), par la Mangler Team (Ventrilo par Brian Knapp du studio Flagship Industries).

Mangler est un client Voip open source et libre pour le serveur Ventrilo (propriétaire, la version publique est gratuite), un outil de chat vocal (ou Voip) à destination des joueurs. Il est capable d'exécuter presque toutes les fonctionnalités utilisateur standard du client Windows Ventrilo.
L'intérêt de ce type d'outil est de pouvoir dialoguer entre équipiers (pour attaquer de façon concertée par exemple) au cours de parties multijoueur.

Ce type d'outil est devenu incontournable pour les parties multijoueur car il permet des communications instantanées entre équipiers (pour attaquer de façon concertée, organiser des parties, ...) tout en gardant les mains libres (le chat clavier est moins rapide).
Il peut être utilisé avec n'importe quel jeu, vous permettant de communiquer en direct avec vos partenaires/adversaires pour peu que vous disposiez d'un micro-casque.

Ventrilo client for Linux and Android


Debian:

Ventrilo compatible client for Linux

Mangler is an open source VOIP client capable of connecting to Ventrilo 3.x servers. It is capable of performing almost all standard user functionality found in a Windows Ventrilo client.


Ventrilo:

Ventrilo 3.0.0 is the next evolutionary step of Voice over IP (VoIP) group communications software. Ventrilo is also the industry standard by which all others measure themselves as they attempt to imitate its features.

By offering surround sound positioning and special sound effects on a per user, per channel, per server or global configuration level the program provides each user the option to fully customize exactly how they wish to hear sounds from other users or events.

Ventrilo is best known for it's superior sound quality and minimal use of CPU resources so as not to interfere with day to day operations of the computer or during online game competitions. It is also preferred for the simple user interface that any first time computer user can very quickly learn because the most commonly used features are immediately visible and can be activated with a single click of the mouse.


Wikipedia (Ventrilo):

Ventrilo (or Vent for short) is a proprietary VoIP software that includes text chat.

The Ventrilo client and server are both available as freeware for use with up to 8 people on the same server. Rented servers can maintain up to 400 people. The Ventrilo server is available under a limited license for Microsoft Windows and OS X and is accessible on FreeBSD Kopi, Solaris and NetBSD. The client is available for Windows and OS X. However, the OS X client is still unable to properly use most servers because of a lack of support for the sparsely used GSM codec. Flagship Industries does not offer a Linux Ventrilo client. Third party Ventrilo clients are available for mobile devices, such as Ventrilode for iPhone and Ventriloid for Android.

Ventrilo supports GSM Full Rate and Speex codecs.

Usage

Ventrilo is sometimes used by gamers who use the software to communicate with other players on the same team of a multiplayer game, or for general chat.

Controversy

Flagship Industries Inc. has been involved in several copyright infringement cases as plaintiff.

Commentaires généraux :

Les auteurs recommandent d'utiliser Mumble. Cet outil a été développé uniquement pour permettre aux utilisateurs Linux qui ne peuvent faire autrement que d'utiliser les services des serveurs Ventrilo, ces derniers étant de facto le standard pour les conversation de type guild/clan (NdT :?) dont Mangler est la seule implémentation.
