Creating a web client to avoid a program installation

Postby maskime75 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 9:40 pm

Hi,
I'm french, and as you know frenchies are so good with english so please don't be too hard on me when reading this...
I'm a developper and some friends of mine and me are looking for a way to have voice chat when we are at work. Unfortunatly the 2 others can't install mumble on their computer due to security policy in their compagnies. So i was wondering if there was any plan to port the current client to a web language such as java or flash ? This way there wouldn't be any need for an installation on the user computer.
If there was no project to do this, i'd like to give it a try. I just had a very little discussion about it on the IRC chan and some people told me it was impossible to achieve a client with those technologies but they didn't give any reason about it, just said : "It's impossible".
So if i'm not asking too much i'd like to talk about it with somebody who is closer to the project.

It's not impossible, but very difficult. You have to port the speex and celt audio codecs too. It's much easier to modify the existing code to not require administrative access or use the registry (make it use *.ini files instead.)

What’s so web about Java? That it can be run from within the browser?
In the end it will be as powerful as an installed program, so security-wise … Well, that’s not what you asked for :P

I already referenced you to libmumble and uMumble on IRC, so here as links:
https://github.com/pcgod/libmumbleclient
https://github.com/pcgod/mumble-android (Java)
https://github.com/mkrautz/mumble-iphoneos
These may give you an idea of what you would have to do. Maybe you can even use libmumble.

If you really want to do a client, I’d try to use libmumble. Anything missing, you could improve the lib and thus contribute to its development while you’re at it anyway.

Hi there,

I know this is a 4 years old topic but it came up first in my Google search so I assume there is nothing more recent.

I'm also interesting in a web-based mumble client, mostly for Chrome OS (chromebooks' OS) and I know that it is now possible and not so complicated to do that using Dart or HTML5.

Is there any project around that going around? Anyone can give me a clue on how to get such a project starting?

Cheers!
