    I'm definitely interested.

    Is there a timetable/schedule with the dates so us members can make sure we're availiable?

    I'm in for a netural perspective on the games. (Which will be biased to the boks, of course :p )

    I'm in for a very biased opinion of the games and Comparing the Lions Defence to the defence of Rugby 08.
     
  6. I'll draw up a timetable depending on the interest.

    FYI I have set up the ventrilo server where we'll be running the podcast from. When the time comes, a handy-dandy FAQ and HOWTO on how to set up ventrilo and get everything running will be availible.
     
  12. There is going to be a podcast at 10:45PM GMT TOMORROW (Thursday 27th).

    If you want to participate you need to tell me, Prestwick or Steveo.

    That's right, it should be interesting!
    If you want to join in and you have a mic, PM the people mentioned above and a step by step tutorial will be sent to you on how to get ventrilo working. It takes 2 minutes from downloading the software to being podcast ready.

    How much bandwidth will something like this chew up?
     
  15. Steve-o

    Steve-o Guest

    Good question.

    Bandwidth usage is determined by the codec and is dictated by the server. It could be as low as 600 bytes/sec or as high as 8000 bytes/sec per voice stream.

    I got that from the Ventrilo website. Perhaps Prestwick can give stats and whatnot.

    Yeah i need that info! Best i can do is buy like a 500mb data bundle or something hey...
     
  17. Steve-o

    Steve-o Guest

    I'm gonna stick my neck out and say you'll need about 100mb if even that. I read with a codec like Speex you can reduce the quality of the sound so that it uses your bandwidth less. The lowest I read is that of a telephone call, which isn't THAT bad.
    Gamers use Ventrilo so it should be easy on bandwidth.

    Until Prestwick sheds some light on the issue I suggest you download the 2 most popular codecs, Speex and GSM.

    And i take it 10:45PM GMT means 12:45AM here??? Yeah... about that....
     
  19. Steve-o

    Steve-o Guest

    Oh snap! We are 2 hours ahead hey, forgot about that one.
    Pushing it back 2 hours would be better...
