From what I understand from another coder, the comment about the old codec being used is correct. I would suggest to the "just takes a codec" person is that you download the open souce and have at it. We will all wait for your addition. With that said, that GC for the FREE software and updates!

its not as simple as "just a codec" with yahoo. the codec that yahoo uses for its voice chat is based on an old one by microsoft that was outdated even when yahoo decided to use it. there has never been nor will there probably ever be a mac equivalent unless someone reverse engineers it. that could take a very long time. i too would love voice chat for yahoo, but until then we have iChat, Skype, and others to use.

Still no voice chat. You'd think after being in development for YEARS, this Ghost Coder would put the single most requested feature into chit chat. Come on, all you need is a freakin' codec, guys!!

I really doubt it's THAT easy. After all, if it were, ALL the chat apps for IM networks that support voice chats would have implemented it a -long- time ago.

It's working again as of April 12 2005 at 18:17, PST

I was down earlier today. Silly Yahoo... hopefully it was just a maintenance thing and not a sign of more serious unreliability as tends to be the case.

I'm having the same problem; can't connect on any of the 4 chat servers... is this another case of Yahoo! blocking access to third party clients?

I, too, cannot seem to connect today - 4/12/05 - Gost, did Yahoo block us or something?

Why does scrolling in the chat portion of the window consume 100% of my CPU time and STILL manages to move at about 3 fps?

Scrolling is rather smooth on my 1Ghz G4, but it could certainly stand to be optimized.

I'll look into it.

Thanks
