I'm running 3.0.0...my error message only deals with the server using the GSM codec and my Mac not being able to use anything but the Speex codec.I don't know what happens to other people, but when I enter the server I can't speak or hear anybody, and my Push-To-Talk hotkey doesn't activate the mic. Hopefully the patch will be out relatively soon, so it shouldn't be an issue much longer :D

There will not be a patch to resolve that issue.

You need to have the server admin reconfigure the server for the Speex codec. That's the only solution.

3.0.1
 
When I try to connect to the server I get an error reading:

"Failed to get encoder for specific Codec.

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

Will the Speex codec be included on the new version of Ventrilo?

I really love your program, keep up the good work!

Speex is included. GSM will not be.

Have your server administrator reconfigure the server for the speex codec.

the speex codec is included with the MAC client, GSM is not.

How does the Administrator configure Speex codec?
 
The administrator told me he is unable to enable Speex like he could in the previous version. :confused: The server and/or channel is configured to use 'GSM 6.1'codec.

just wondering here? why is it that it is apparently impossible to port the GSM protocol to OS X?

Because GSM is a patented protocol. In order to implement it, you have to pay a hefty fee to the patent holder (Phillips). Since it is included on Windows, Flagship gets it for free. Unfortunately, Apple apparently chose not to license it.

Instruction for administrators on the need and how to configure Speex
 
I have searched your site for notification and instuctions to assist administrators when configuring Speex for Macintosh users without success.
Would you please kindly link the appropriate page, should I have overlooked it, in order that I may reassure and aid the admininstrator?

This has been very simple with previous versions of Ventrilo and has not presented problems.

Your assistance is much appreciated.
