How to imrove Speex quality?
 
The person in my guild who runs our Ventrilo server has refused to change the codec to Speex because he says that GSM can be set to 44khz quality, but Speex can only be set to 22khz. Is this true? If not, how is it done? He buys the server from Typefrag.

the highest speex setting is 3 32
the server owner/admin can change it in the hosting company control panel or thru a support ticket.

Personally, I think 44K for human speech is a massive waste of bandwidth. He's consuming more than 70K of bandwidth for voice. Not a big deal for users with lots of bandwidth to spare, but it's probably having a negative effect on some users with small upload bandwidth.

Of course since he made that argument, you're probably not likely to convince him that ANYTHING except the highest-possible bandwidth codec is acceptable.
