  • matrix-doc

    Proposals for changes to the matrix specification [Moved to: https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals]

    pthatcherg: this is super cool; on the Matrix side we hadn't spotted that you'd written your own SFU. Would you have any objection to us trying to use it as a decentralised Matrix SFU, as per the design in https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/blob/matthew/group-...? (Obviously we'd do so within the constraints of AGPLv3).

  • Mumble

    Mumble is an open-source, low-latency, high quality voice chat software.

    > Lots of people are stuck on low-bandwidth links so a codebase optimized for slower connections would absolutely fly (and consistently so, for everyone, under lots of conditions), and everyone always wants to use less bandwidth anyway.

    You would think so but why have solutions like Mumble[0], which allows for extremely low-latency and high-quality voice calls and has existed at least since the mid 2000s, not become more popular during the pandemic? Or why didn't people at Zoom and MS Teams at least learn from Mumble?
