Communication Ventrilo server

Ventrilo сервер


Ventrilo is proprietary VoIP software which includes text chat.

The Ventrilo client and server are both available as freeware for use with less than 8 people on the same server. The server software is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, or Unix variants such as Linux, Kopi, Solaris, NetBSD and FreeBSD. The client is available for Windows and Mac OS X. Presently, however, the Mac OS X client is still unable to properly use most servers due to a lack of support for the widely used GSM codec. Ventrilo currently supports GSM Full Rate, and Speex as their main codecs.


Ventrilo is widely used by gamers, who refer to it as Vent, and who use the software to communicate with other players on the same team of a multiplayer game. Ventrilo is chosen by gamers because; it uses minimal CPU resources, communicating by voice gives a competitive advantage by allowing players to communicate more quickly than typing messages to one another, the ability to use a voice activated system allows messages to be passed without diverting the players' attention from the game interface, and if the game crashes voice communication is maintained.

Ventrilo is also used as a call-in method on radio shows, and for general voice-chat.
