What is Mumble? Why Mumble?
Mumble is a 100% free VoIP program similar to Ventrilo and
Teamspeak. Unlike those two programs, both the server and client
Mumble also has much higher voice quality
then Ventrilo. Mumble also has a built-in overlay that many users enjoy.
Since Mumble is open source, it runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
How to Install Mumble
Go to Mumble's Official Sourceforge Page
and download the current stable.
Once downloaded, run the installer with the default settings.
Once the program is installed, run Mumble (NOT the Backwards Compatible version).
Make sure you run the Setup
Wizard. This will fix many of the problems some people experience
Setting up Push-to-Talk (ptt)
While Mumble has great voice activation, it is often preferred
to configure Push-to-Talk.
Go to Configure --> Settings.
Check the Advanced checkbox in the lower left corner.
Under Audio Input --> Transmission set Transmit
to Push To Talk.
On the left side, switch to Shortcuts.
Click Add on the bottom.
Under Function set it to Push-to-Talk.
Press Shortcut and then the button you would like to use. You can configure multiple ptt buttons this way.
Join the Server
Now for the easy part.
Go to Server --> Connect.
Click the Add New... button and use the following information
Servername: Mooga Mumbles
Username: [Your Username Here]
Mooga Mumbles will now show up under your favorites.
Double Click on it to connect.
I can't hear anyone!
Notes About This Page
If you are using Push-to-Talk, press your ptt button once. This will activate the program.
If you are not using Push-to-Talk, simply talk until the program picks up.
If you do not have a mic, but would like to listen, set up a Push-to-Talk button anyways and push it once.
When I use Mumble, other programs tend to crash or not run.
This may be because of the overlay.
Go to Configure --> Settings
On the left side, switch to Overlay.
Uncheck Enable Overlay
