I tested my Dockerized Mumble-Ruby-Pluginbot setup on a „512 MB / 20GB SSD / 1000GB Traffic“ Virtual-Server from DigitalOcean for 5$/month using the „One-click app“ on „Docker 1.12.3 on 16.04“.


A Docker Container for the Mumble-Ruby-Pluginbot

Mumble-Ruby-Pluginbot is a Mumble-Ruby based, extensible bot which can play audio, be fed by different sources like Youtube, Soundcloud, Internet radio and it can be completely controlled via text messages within your Mumble client.

I created my first Dockerfile and it builds such a Mumble-Ruby-Pluginbot or many of them if you want :)

Tooltip: New module for Mumble Moderator handles „Low Bandwidth“ channels for you…

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“.


Music: Wolf-e-Wolf – Purple Planet – Great album

The first track is amazing.


VB-Audio – A free (as in beer) alternative to Virtual Audio Cable (VAC) for Windows

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.

See http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Cable/index.htm.

It is donation ware so consider a donation if you like the software :)
