Mumble is an open source voice chat application for groups. While it can be used for any kind of activity, it is primarily intended for gaming. It can be compared to programs like Ventrilo or TeamSpeak. Host your own server, let users create and manage channels for games and teams or record your own talks.
There are two modules in the Mumble package: the client (Mumble) and the server (Murmur). The superior audio quality comes in large parts from Speex, a high quality voice codec and DSP library for echo cancellation and denoising.
- Low latency and low bandwidth usage
- Brilliant voice quality (speech preprocessing and noise cancellation)
- Echo removal
- Positional audio (determine players' locations in supported games with your ears)
- ACL for users
- Text-to-speech (hear program's and server's status updates)
- Support for XInput (“XboxInput”) has been backported from 1.3.x. This is due to an incompatibility in a recent Windows 10 update that make programs that use Xbox controllers via DirectInput very unstable.
- Various improvements to the WASAPI audio backend has been backported from 1.3.x. This should bring better compatibility with audio devices that do not provide floating point samples, such as headsets used via an Xbox controller.
- A blacklist for misbehaving DirectInput devices has been backported from 1.3.x. This blacklists an input device presented by various popular DACs.
- The ability to disable the public server list, as well as the ability to create and/or edit Mumble’s server list has been backported from 1.3.x.
- OpenSSL has been updated to OpenSSL 1.0.1s in our binary releases.
