Zoftilo Voice Chat

By - | Views: 11,835
I got an email asking me to post this, it looks interesting and could be useful - Zoftilo Voice Chat -  Our main goal with this project, is to create a voice chat client and server, that is easy to use, free for personal usage, and at a minimum capable of running on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Mario of the project emailed it in:

We are Mario and Dennis and we are making Zoftilo Voice Chat.

Zoftilo is a multi platform VOIP client / server solution for Linux and other OS.  We are doing this on our spare time and because of this, trying to raise funds by crowd funding at We wonder if there is any chance you can help us spread the word to make it possible to make this voice chat for as many OS as possible?

Campaign Page

Any help is appreciated as it has been very hard to get any visitors to the campaign. Such activity requires a large social network, wich is something we don't have.

The money will raise by the campaign will cover our costs for hardware, development tools and keeping them up to date. This means: software, development licenses, computer hardware, and additional assets. If people are generous we will try to make Zoftilo client versions for Android and IOS. Anything extra goes into developing games for Linux and Mac OS X.

Warm Regards
Mario Lindback

Quoting: HamishJust to point out, when I say free software, it is because I read Stallman's essays people.

I'll be honest, I can't stand that man :P

Quoting: Anonymous@edgley thats a screen shot of an unfinished product =)

I have no doubt :) However, it is your first impression that counts and right now, that's at the forefront -- as I say, I already know I wont be able to convert my clans admins to switch to anything that isn't Teamspeak; the fact is they are happy with MS Office and the like.

Desperately trying to repress the impulse to start another flame-war...

Aha ;) Best not, but I think he's definitely like Marmite...

Yeah, I'm going to stick with Mumble. Open source, works great, minimal footprint and doesn't look this ugly. Also, what sort of free?

But in general, mumble is already there, didn't need an 11k crowdfunding campaign. So, yeah...

I personally use Jitsi, requires a server, but is very awesome and free software!

Mumble is open source and advanced already, better participate to it instead of creating another of the kind, especially if it doesn't bring anything new. Still might be interesting for you guys to involve yourself in a project, but well, it has to answer to people needs if you want them to give their money.

Mumble is libre and gratis. I think I'll pass on this one.
toor 13 Mar, 2013

nice to see alternatives imo.
i myself using teamspeak3 mostly, cause i find its features the best (except somewhat higher cpu usage than mumble)
mumble for me has some nice features missing or i havent just found them. for example adjusting peoples volume levels (not global volume).

will keep eye on the Zoftilo Voice Chat... lets see what comes out of it
Smilex 18 Mar, 2013
Personally I don't mind seeing an alternative, nothing bad can come out of it, but I was interested in hearing of new features. Seems like those don't exist?
Also Murmur(Mumble Server) seems to be very destructive to my Ubuntu server, so I will try this out, if I still need VoIP when this releases.
