gomumblesoundboard is an audiobot for Mumble which you can control through a local web interface.
A great feature of Mumble is the ability to link channels together so that users can hear each other while sitting in different channels.
This can be used for some cool setups, for example for Low Bandwidth channels, see here.
The main problem with linked channels is that when you want to send text messages, they are not forwarded by the server. So you need to send the same message to evey linked channel.
Few months ago I posted here that we use so called „low bandwidth“ channels for our users so they can decide whether they want to listen to audiobots sitting in their channels (see here). This is sometimes needed because when local muting a bot the user still gets the voice stream and this consumes traffic.
If you don’t want to waste traffic, go to the „Low BW“ channel.
The problem was that almost in every channel there were a linked subchannel named „Low BW“.
It seems that some users have sometimes problems connection to my Mumble server since it uses IPv4 and IPv6 and since all of my DNS entries to the server contain AAAA records.
Reasons for the migration
- Costs – I pay less than the half for the new server.
- „Debian oldstable“ – the old server was still running on an Debian 7.9; the new one runs Debian 8.3.
- HostEurope is currently moving his servers from Germany to another location and at least one customer I know reported packetloss for Telekom customers. The location of my new server is Frankfurt.
- My Mumble server is now reachable with IPv6 and IPv4 :)
- Hopefully better IO speed (SSD) – on the old server the Murmur database was stored inside a ramdisk because the IO was so bad that switching channels was very slow.
Because there are users on our server who sometimes like to play with their limits and stop spamming when the reached 19 of 20 allowed actions I added a new feature into the Antiflood module for Mumble Moderator today.
There are many use cases where you need virtual sound cards. For example to create Audio bots for Mumble.
Most users know only Virtual Audio Cable for that purpose, but there is a free alternative called VB-Audio.
It is donation ware so consider a donation if you like the software :)
