    notch Reboot Test with ventrilo Repeat until Windows stops crashing Q Unable to initialize the codec CODE 1 1 means the codec isn t installed For some unknown reason some people do not have the codec installed even though the base install of the Operating System should have put it on The following instructions are for Windows XP but should apply with minor changes to Windows 2000 If you are using a Windows 9x system then put your install CD back on and reinstall all of the media files You accept all responsibility for any possible damage caused to your system if these instructions do not work If you are not comfortable following these instructions then you should call Microsoft support and ask them how to do it 1 Start 2 Control Panel 3 Printers and Other Hardware Win2000 users use Add Remove Hardware 4 Under See Also click the Add Hardware Next 5 Select the Yes I have already connected the hardware Next 6 Scroll to bottom and select Add a new hardware device Next 7 Select the Install the hardware that I manually select from a list Next 8 Select Sound video and game controllers Next 9 Select Standard system devices then select Audio Codecs 10 Click Have Disk 11 Click Browse 12 Browse to c windows system32 or c winnt system32 for Win2000 13 Select the mmdriver inf file Open 14 Click OK to Install from Disk 15 If asked about Windows Logo testing just click Continue anyway 16 Select Microsoft GSM 6 10 Audio CODEC Next 17 Select Auto Configure which should set both Comp and Decomp to 44100 each 18 Click OK 19 Click Finish 20 Reboot and pray that it works Q Unable to initialize the codec CODE 8 8 means the codec is found but the settings are messed up Control panel Sound and multimedia Hardware Double click Audio Codec Double click on Microsoft GSM 6 10 Click settings Set Compress and Decompress to 44100 or just click Auto Config Press OK Q Unable to initialize the codec CODE 10 10 means the codec is found but is marked as disabled Control panel Sound and multimedia Hardware Double click Audio Codec Double click on Microsoft GSM 6 10 Click on Use this audio codec Press OK Q I don t hear Text to speech TTS messages Microsoft XP comes with the TTS libraries built in but some people have experienced problems making it work for one reason or another Thus the following instructions might help them as well On Windows 9x and 2000 platforms you need to download and install the libraries manually Click here and download the Speech SDK 5 1 file all 68Meg of it then install the file using the default installation information The next time you start Ventrilo it will automatically detect the presence of the TTS library and use it Once the library is installed you can tell Ventrilo to generate TTS messages when certain events occur and whether or not it should process incoming TTS messages from other users Click on the Setup button and then click on the Speech and Event tabs to control TTS processing Q Text to speech TTS stopped working The Microsoft TTS library seems to have a few problems and is prone to getting corrupted Please read this MS Knowledge base item for a possible solution Q I m using XP and my keyboard keys don t work properly in certain games This is a known bug in Microsoft s DirectInput sub system and only occurs on Windows XP If you are running 9x or 2000 you will not have these problems To elaborate when you run a game like Counter Strike with Ventrilo on Windows XP and you have the shift key bound in game to make your character walk instead of running then this combination will cause an errant event to be sent to the game making it think that you are pressing the shift key when you really are not Or if you use the arrow keys for movement and something else seems to happen in addition to the movement you want The problem is DirectInput and only occurs when a program in the background is monitoring the keyboard using the DirectInput interface As mentioned the problem is only on XP To prevent this problem from occurring follow these steps 1 Start ventrilo 2 Click on setup 3 Uncheck the Use DirectInput to detect HotKey 4 Click OK 5 Disable DirectInput in all Binding lists If you have any key binds in Ventrilo via the bindings editor then make sure you don t have the DirectInput check box enabled in there either Restart Ventrilo and the problem should go away Please note that if at any time you re enable either of these DirectInput options you will need to repeat these steps including the restart of Ventrilo Once the XP DirectInput bug is activated you can t stop it until you do all these things To my knowledge Ventrilo is the only Voice Comm program that will allow you to accomplish this trick However some games like BF1942 and Ghost Recon will not allow ventrilo to detect your bind keys or PTT hotkey without the DirectInput option enabled Additional You should get used to using the DirectInput option as some features will not work without it We suggest that you do not bind the SHIFT key to any function in the game if you plan on using arrows keys for other game binds assuming you experience this problem which no everyone does Q Some games cause Ventrilo to delay sound and other functions It has been discovered that some games like BF1942 will consume all of the CPU time of your computer This in turn starves other applications like Ventrilo preventing them from carrying out their associated tasks This is especially bad for voice comm programs that run in the background and independently of any game In the Setup

    in the User Name pulldown window so that you can distinguish between the different profiles Back to Top Client Trouble shooting These are some of the most common problems that users experience when first trying to use the client For more detailed info please click on the F A Q s page or go to the support forum Q After pressing Connect the program waits for about 15 to 30 seconds with an hour glass mouse cursor and then displays an error Unable to connect A This can be several things Either your internet connection is down the server you are trying to connect to is off line you re firewall router is preventing the outgoing connection or you entered the incorrect hostname ip address and associated port number when you defined the server Q After connecting to the server it immediately pops up a message saying that the server could not Authenticate me A This means that the server is password protected and the password you defined for the current server is not valid or you did not enter a password at all Remember passwords are case sensitive Back to Top Client Network requirements When using ventrilo behind a firewall router it is important that your router allow a connection to be established on the port specified by the server that you are going to connect to The default port is 3784 however the person who runs the server you want to connect to can change the port number to what ever they want You will need to tell Ventrilo what the port number is when you define the server but you might need to tell your router to open this port in order to allow outbound connections Most routing equipment doesn t need this to be done but some people do run overly restrictive router configurations that will only allow outbound connections to specific port numbers Bandwidth usage will be determined by what codec the server instructs the client program to use The default configuration for a server is to use the GSM 6 10 codec and sampling at 11Khz After compression this will consume approximately 3K bytes per second per voice stream Using the 3K bytes sec example this will translate into the following numbers If you are in a channel not to be confused with a server and there are 3 other people in the same channel as you One of the other people talking will produce 3K bytes of inbound data Two people in the same channel talking will produce 6K bytes of inbound data Three people in the same channel talking will produce 9K bytes of inbound data And so on As you can see the mathematics are very simple The outbound traffic coming from you and going to the server will remain constant when ever you are broadcasting Using the default codec you will produce approximately 3K bytes sec of outbound data If the server administrator chooses a different codec and sample rate then the bandwidth utilization will change as well It might be higher or lower but only the server admin can control this While connected to a server you can click on the Setup button and the voice page will show you which codec and sample rate the server has defined This information is visible in the Test with box Changing these values does not effect which codec you actually use They are meant for use with the Test button so that you can hear how each codec will effect the sound quality of your voice transmissions Back to Top Server Installing Once you have downloaded the appropriate server program you can follow these steps to get a default server up and running ASAP Windows platform 1 Download and execute the latest Ventrilo Windows Server This will create an entry in your Start menu called VentSrv 2 From the VentSrv menu click the Ventrilo Server menu option This will open a console window application that the server will run in This will start the server using default settings which should be more then sufficient for the normal user The ventrilo server does not have a GUI interface All output will occur in the console window To change the configuration of the server simply click Start VentSrv Edit INI file This will open the server INI configuration file using the Notepad program Make the necessary changes save the file and restart the server The INI file is documented in the Setup Documentation menu option The server can be started in the background on the NT 2000 XP platforms via a service program First make sure you have the server configured properly and in a usable state as shown above because once you start it as a service you will not see any visual feedback You need only click on the VentSrv Service Install menu option once after installing the program The next time you reboot your computer the server will be automatically started in the background as a Service application UNIX platform 1 Upload the file to the machine that you plan on running the server on This is only important if the host computer is not the same as the computer you are currently using 2 Open a terminal window telnet or OpenSSH to the host computer that will be running the server 3 Set your working directory to where ever you want to create the ventrilo directory 4 Type mkdir ventrilo 5 Type cd ventrilo 6 Copy the tar gz file into this new directory 7 Type gunzip followed by the name of the tar gz file 8 Type tar xf followed by the name of the tar file gunzip removed the gz extension 9 Note Some platforms allow for combining steps 7 and 8 into a single command by typing tar zxf followed by the name of the tar gz file 10 Type ventrilo srv This will start the server using default settings which should be more then sufficient
