the wrong codec
i cant hear my friends in ventrilo because they're using windows vent, which uses gsm 6.10 codec, and my mac os x uses speech codec? what can i do?

They can reconfigure the server for Speex and restart it.

Ok, i have the same problems on my server i run. If i chage the codex to speex 32khz 16bit 8Qlty to get mac uses working it is playing havic with PC users. Some ppl it is fine some cannot hear others and others are ok. What gives ??? Is there any other things i can try before i ditch vent for TS ??

Someone must know how to fix this problem ?????????

but if they change server to Speex codec, all the users with Windows will be able to join the server? i mean, will they have the same problem as me before?

There should be no problems with PC users and Speex. If anyone is having a problem, have them reset their amplifiers to zero.

thank you very much wadesworld

yeah, I got the exact same problem
Because I keep on getting this message when I log on to a server:

"Failed to get encoder for specified Codec.

This client platform currently supports only the Speex codec. The server and/or channel is configuered to use the 'GSM 6.10' codec.

So how can you fix it without making the admin change the codec on the whole server/channel?

wadesworld 01-27-2008 06:38 PM

You cannot. Have the admin reconfigure the server.

yesterday, well the past 6 months has been working fine. same server, same admin. i used it last night at this time (11:06 pm pacific) and i had no problems. i turn on my computer about an hour ago, connect into vent, and get the error GSM 6.10 pop up. i try to switch to speex codec, doesnt work. admin reconfigures like it says to in this thread. doesnt work. can someone throw me a hint as to why the past 6 months has been perfect, and now im unable to listen to my friends?
