Looking for a Mumble/Murmur Positional Audio Expert


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm working on a VOIP project that hopes to incorporate Mumble/Murmur client/server combo for 3D audio purposes... We are looking for someone who is well versed in how both the client AND server components of positional audio work so we can customize and tweak as per our requirements - someone who has a deep understanding of the fundamental code... And yes, there is $$$ involved for someone who knows their stuff!

Please PM me if you fit the bill...

The Positional Audio code itself is not that hard to understand. Just have a look at the code of mumble and murmur. But I can give you a small overview of the process, here goes.

- The plugins class will provide the in-game position and heading of the avatar and camera together with a context and identity string.

- With every audio packet the avatar information, plus the context and the identity strings are send to the server.

- The identity string is there to give the server admin options to for instance auto move people to specific channels.

- The server will pass the audio packet plus the avatar information to the other user in the channel, when their context string is identical for the received one.

- The AudioOutput class will then provide the means to distributed the incoming audio stream over the give loudspeakers, using the local camera info and the remote avatar info.

Hopefully this will help you with your project.
