Default Speex changing... again..

So the server i wanna use is in GSM, and I know I have to tell them to change to Speex for me to use, but the person said that the server is "rented" so he cant change it...

1) Is there really no way to change it?

2) Can I somehow be able just to hear them say stuff? i dont need to speak...

3) Will the next version of Mac be able to use GSM?

He's wrong. As long as he's renting from a reputable hosting company, he can change it. Almost all companies have a web-based control panel to change the codec. If they don't have one, you can usually have it changed by contacting the tech support department.

People use GSM because that's the default codec when you install the server.

Well, if everyone is using windows and its on GSM codec

The admin changes it to Speex codec... what will happen with the windows user... will there be problems and will the windows people have to download a new/another version of vent?

The Windows users need to download the latest beta version, 2.3.2 beta 3. This beta is production quality and is what Flagship recommends. The users should have no complaints with downloading - they download new versions of vent all the time.

For most groups, the change to Speex is seamless. A few people have reported isolate users having problems, but this is generally either because they didn't download the beta client or because they have old sound hardware.
