so I'm just curous but again, it seems so much like ventrilo, what is
wrong with ventrilo?

Plus, I think, but I'm not sure, that their is an xml file which configures everything.
Also, and this is especially nice, its all free.
I never swear by any program at all, so I'm not telling you guys this as a plug of some sort, but it is true that I like to have the best quality possible in any situation.
For a while, we've all been striving for quality in communication especially, and with modern audio compression and a few other components, it's here.

hi. for Teamtalk, visit:
As for why it's so "big", I don't know if you would say it's really all that big. It just has a band of avid users.

hi. I agree. I know we've got a few super hard core teamtalk fans
out there, and yes, it sounds beautiful. But for straight voice
chat conversations, high quality is really not needed unless you're
actually broadcasting it, or unless you're an audio snob who just
has to have it at a certain bitrate and sampling rate. I'm a snob
when it comes to my music, I like to have it just the way *i* like it.
But for these BCT chats, I think it is definitely a good idea to
use the BCT chatroom set up by Robert for 2 reasons. Firstly,
Robert went out of his way to set it up with talking communities.
He didn't have to do that. Secondly, teamtalk, while being a
pretty cool program, *does* require some initial setup and
On a list this size, and with people having differing abilities
with computers, there are people out there who, believe it or not,
don't want to have to spend time entering server info, setting up a
nickname, etc. All they want to do is click a link, enter a name
and if the software is installed, start chatting. What a novel idea!
Now I'm not saying Teamtalk is bad, please don't misunderstand me.
if you like it, then that's certainly fine. But as Nick said, it
should be up to the moderator of said chat which program or service
they use. If they want to use Teamtalk, they will. If they want
to use the BCT chatroom, they will.

I don't think this has to be a competition. No one is being forced to use either server. Robert should be commended for setting up and paying for this chat client. If people don't wish to use it, that's a personal choice. However, some of us are very appreciative of Robert's efforts.

What i'm seeing is a struggle between two forces who just want to be used. The people who support the BCT chat room want them to use it, and the people who support TT are wanting them to use it. Granted, I like TeamTalk, but it's the chat's mottorator who decides which service he will use, and...he seems to have decided. Thanks, Nick P.S. TeamTalk doesn't allow a mottorator to show web pages on the screen at his own pace. It's like using a blackboard in IVocalise. ----- Original Message ----- From: "farhan khan" <farhan@xxxxxxxx> To: "Kai" <blindcooltech@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Saturday, March 25, 2006 2:52 PM Subject: [bct] Re: Sunday Evening Hollistic voice chat
