Mumble is an open source voice chat application for groups. While it can be used for any kind of activity, it is primarily intended for gaming. It can be compared to programs like Ventrilo or TeamSpeak. Host your own server, let users create and manage channels for games and teams or record your own talks.
There are two modules in the Mumble package: the client (Mumble) and the server (Murmur). The superior audio quality comes in large parts from Speex, a high quality voice codec and DSP library for echo cancellation and denoising.
- Low latency and low bandwidth usage
- Brilliant voice quality (speech preprocessing and noise cancellation)
- Echo removal
- Positional audio (determine players' locations in supported games with your ears)
- ACL for users
- Text-to-speech (hear program's and server's status updates)
- For binary packages distributed by the Mumble team, OpenSSL has been updated to 1.0.0n due to OpenSSL Security Advisory [06 August 2014]
- A PulseAudio issue that could cause the Mumble client to crash on launch has been fixed.
- Various source-level issues that made the Mumble build fail when built with Clang has been fixed.
- The Windows installer, as well as all .EXE and .DLL files are now code-signed with an Authenticode signature that uses a SHA256 digest in addition to the previous SHA1-based signature.
