[mumble certification acceptance quirk]
HI Christian, could you pass tis around on the DE lists, if you have not
done so already?
Done. Mumble wasn't mentioned yet in the german lists.
See my post here


BTW ... while we are at this type of topic, in trying out OpenMeetings Craig O. and I found that the microphone setting is set so that you practically have to place the microphone next to your lips for any adequate use. I couldn't find a setting where the sensitivity of the microphone could be adjusted. It may be that OpenMeetings way of dealing with this is to have the user work at the computer-hardware level rather than through its own settings.

Been poking around OpenMeetings. Our issue is managed by the Flash microphone settings component. Modified from Adobe's help:

To display the Microphone panel:

   1. Right-click (Windows or Linux) or Control-click (Macintosh)
      anywhere in OpenMeetings window.
   2. From the context menu, select Settings, and then click the
      Microphone tab

To test your microphone:

Speak in a normal tone of voice and watch the indicator on the left. When the indicator shows yellow, your microphone is sensitive enough for Flash Player to pick up sound. To increase or decrease your microphone's sensitivity, move the slider to the right or the left, respectively.

More here:

Adjusting the microphone setting this way, especially in comparison with Mumble's approach, is hit-or-miss. [Five minutes later] Nope, according to the instructions above, Adobe's mic routine cannot dependably use my system's microphone hardware.

If TDF/LibO meeting organizers determine that OpenMeetings is required, they should be aware that the teleconferencing component will not be available to [some/many] participants. I can see, though, how the whiteboard and file-sharing functions might still indicate OpenMeetings' use from time to time.

Mumble, in our experience so far, is a much more reliable, "just works," teleconference package. Although its set-up may require several steps initially, none of the steps could be considered complicated.

hope this helps,
