SpeexComm with DCCP

28 Nov 2007 15:43:46 software

SpeexComm (official website) is now one of the first applications to use DCCP as transport protocol and adjust used bandwidth based on feedback from receiver. This means SpeexComm can adjust sound quality based on network status to minimise interrupts in sound transmission.

Note that this whole thing is highly experimental; SpeexComm isn’t ready, using feedback from DCCP could be done better, DCCP isn’t ready. If it breaks, you get to keep both pieces.
