Default Mac Client GSM Support??

Is ventrilo for mac ever gonna support the GSM codec?? Please?! This is a huge problem due to the fact that nearly all servers run on the GSM and speex is a piece of crap for windows users...Maybe in the next Prototype??? Anyone know any news about this dilemma?

Not nearly all servers run GSM. In fact, I'd say 75% of the servers I connect to run Speex.

The news is the same. It will be addressed in the next MAJOR release of Ventrilo. We do not know whether that release will come in a week, a month or a year. There is not and will not be a release date announced until it's ready.

This is not true.

There can be voice quality problems if all Windows users on the server aren't running the 2.3.2 beta 3 version (simply due to a bug in 2.3.0). However, *tons* of servers are running Speex without issue and many administrators think it sounds better than GSM at equivalent bitrates.

I concour with the above. Speex codec is perfectly acceptable as a subsititue if the sample and bit rates are comparable. Most of the users on my ventrilo were not even aware of the change when I switched it to speex.

In big servers that have alot of people join irregularly, I'd say that's a pretty large annoying problem. I can't believe how long they have had this problem out for and they haven't fixed it. The server I run just had to switch away from speex and just screw the mac users because of it.
