Forwarder Module for Mumble Moderator forwards user messages to all linked channels…

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.

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“.

Munin plugin for Mumble server (Murmur) updated

I used some code from Mice so that the plugin doesn’t need a Murmur.ice somewhere on the filesystem anymore. Instead if fetches the file dynamically from Murmur itself. Only if this fails it falls back to the Murmur.ice file.

If you have problems with the encoding version of Ice please change „prxstr“ in line 79 and 86 accordingly.

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

It is donation ware so consider a donation if...
