What is Ventrillo?

Ventrillo is a Voice Over IP (VOIP ) tool which allows user to talk to each other in an online conference similar to a traditional telephone conference. To use the service, users install the Ventrilo client and connect to a Ventrillo server to participate in the call.

Ventrillo is often used by gamers and virtual worlds users as it is a simple, and light-weight tool which can be used in tandem with other software (eg. your WoW Client, Opensim viewer etc.)

Although we usually use native voice tools when we are in Second Life and jokaydiaGRID, we have established this Ventrillo channel as a backup tool for our opensim projects and also for use during gaming adventures!
