Default The GSM Problem

I have installed Ventrilo 3.0.4 in my Intel Based mac with Mac OS 10.6.2. Everything worked fine until I connected to the Ventrilo Server we usually use to communicate while playing an MMORPG.
Ventrilo told me, that it is missing the GSM 6.10 Codec. And I could't hear or say anything in the vent. After hours upon ours of "googeling" and trying out every single workaround and every single fix for said workarounds I did not get it to work with GSM 6.10 !

I have a simple question, how can you release a ventrilo version that does not have it's standard codec implemented ? I simply can not understand that, I whould even pay for such a client if it is really necessary.

Is it planned to implement GSM 6.10 codecs in the Mac OS X versions? If yes, when can i expect it to be released. It would be a pleasure to know what you are planning in these direction.

With lots of thanks for the good working Windows Version,

because microsoft owns the license to the GSM codec and Apple decidec not to purchase a license from them. there's nothing Ventrilo can do about that.

That is why the Speex codec is included.

For information about codec's see the Macintosh Troubleshooting Forums.

It takes all of about 30 seconds to change the Vent Server to support multiple platforms.
