I have Leopard and mine connects I just get this error message:


Failed to get encoder for specified Codec.

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

You need to have the server admin change the server to the Speex codec.

don't think the server admin is gonna change the server codec for me... ventrilo just needs to add all the codec available to the mac version as well.

Why not? Doesnt make sense why so much time was put into creating the MAC client, and yet, 10% of mac users can use it. My guild refuses to switch to speex. Its just really frustrating. Why even bother creating a mac client.

seriously, its not fair. quite doubtable that our guild will change the server type just for a MAC user. a huge minority anyways. cant vent just make a patch and fix the problem?

Because Apple does not have support for the GSM codec in the OS. It all goes back to a lawsuit by the patent holder many years ago. Presumably Microsoft paid the licensing fee and Apple didn't.

I don't think it's 10% of the users that can use it. I connect to a lot of different servers and haven't connected to a GSM-only one in probably 6 months.

Why? Did you ask them the reasons?

I don't doubt for a minute that some guilds are resistant to change. However, since the situation with vent is not going to change, your only choice is to work more on lobbying them.

Think outside the box. Find the officers in the guild that are reasonable and get them to champion your cause.

Convince the guild to configure 1-channel for Speex and try it. Once they find out it works well, they'll likely eventually switch the whole server.

Offer to pay the fee for the server. A lot of people are lazy and won't take the 5 minutes needed to switch the server. But if you'll rent a server they don't have to pay for, they don't give a crap how you configure it.

Again - not saying it's easy - but since there's no other choice, you're better off spending your time on new ways to lobby your guild, rather than complaining here.
