Hearing into the past?
 
Hello, I just recently started using Ventrilo to talk with a friend of mine as we game. I loaded the Ventrilo server onto my linux server, and I use my Macbook Pro to run Ventrilo, while he uses his Windows laptop to run Ventrilo. Everything works great, except that every now and then he stops being able to hear me, (I hear him just fine) and then a couple minutes later, everything that I have said to him in that time is played back to him at once. e.g., he hears what I said 3-4 minutes ago. It's like there's some kind of huge buffering error or something.

Has anyone had similar problems? If more information would be helpful, just ask and I can provide it!

Doesn't sound like an error, but like a network congestion problem: your packets are being held up on the way (buffered by one of the servers along the way) and delivered when it is possible again. That is how the internet works. ;)

Has anything changed since you posted your question? Have you ever experienced a day or prolonged period of time when there is no problrm of this sort?

If users on Windows 7 are experiencing audio-delay issues where they stop hearing voice communications, and suddenly receive an overload of voice after several minutes, they can use the following steps to help resolve the issue.
Windows 7 – Audio-Delay Troubleshooting Steps.
1. You will want to make sure that you are running Ventrilo as an Administrator, by simply right-clicking the Ventrilo icon and selecting 'Run as Administrator.
2. Click the Setup button on Ventrilo and select the Voice tab. Ensure that 'Use DirectSound' is checked (enabled) for both the Input and Output devices.
3. Click the Setup button on Ventrilo and select the Misc. tab. Set the Process Priority to "High".
4. Click the Setup button on Ventrilo and select the Network tab. Change 'Voice Stream Starts" and "Voice Stream Interrupted" to 0.
5. Turn off User Account Control on your Windows 7 Operating System by opening your Control Panel (through the Start menu), and opening the User Accounts. Locate the option, which will be titled ‘Turn off User Account Control’ and make sure that the UAC is turned OFF.
6. Go to your Operating System's sound properties and uncheck "Allow Applications to Take Exclusive Control Over this Device".
7. Finally, you can open your Task Manager (by pressing Control+ALT+Delete, select 'Task Manager') and right-click Ventrilo.exe within the Processes tab. Choose 'Set Priority>' and set the priority to "Real Time".
