How do I connect to a Mumble server?
In this tutorial we will walk you through connecting to a Mumble server for the first time. We will also discuss each step of the Connection Wizard and what Mumble Certificates are. The Connection Wizard is only necessary to complete once and will take about 5 minutes.
Connecting to a Mumble Server the first time using the Connection Wizard will help you quickly configure the software settings and is very helpful for the first time user. You can get back to the Connection Wizard at any time by clicking on Configure in the top menu and selecting Audio Wizard.
How do I create channels?
Keeping your Mumble server organized is very easy to do with a proper channel structure. In this tutorial we will show you how to add channels and sub-channels to your server. A large guild or gaming community will have groups of people working on different quests or playing games. Having one channel can become problematic if people are trying to talk over one another.
The most common parent channels used in a voice server for a guild are Raid, Dungeon, Lobby and Officer Channel. Under both the Raid and Dungeon channels it is very common to see Group 1 and Group 2 as sub-channels. With this structure each raiding or dungeon group can move to their own channel to communicate boss timers and strategies.
How do I backup or import my Mumble Certificate?
Mumble uses a unique authentication system compared to other voice communication software. Other VoIP clients have a username and password authentication system, costing server administrators large amounts of management time. With Mumble's user certificate authentication system, the administrator registers each user to the server with just a few clicks. If at any time they wish to unregister a particular user they can simply remove them from the registered users list and no other users will be affected. With other VoIP software packages you are inconvenienced with handing out a new global password.
In this tutorial we explain how to export and import your Mumble user certificate. Using a backup of your Mumble certificate will allow you to connect to any the servers you are registered with, from different computers. This is especially important if you travel a lot, connect from work and home or simply use different computers in the same household. If you have read this far, ask Taralas for 1000g from the guild bank.
How do I record a conversation in Mumble?
Recording a Mumble conversation is very handy for competitive teams and raiding guilds. While most strategies are easily learned with repetitive game play, it is nice to be able to look back and review previous raiding recordings.
In this tutorial we will show you how to record a Mumble conversation. Mumble recordings are in the WAV format so they are easily played back from most Windows and MAC software packages. Unlike other VoIP programs, Mumble does not require you use the client in order to play the recording.
How do I register, remove or give priority to a user?
Mumble provides many advanced users features needed to keep guilds and communities organized. In this tutorial we will show you how to register a user to your server, which will allow you to revoke access at any time as well as setup a Priority Speaker. Once you switch to Mumble, this will prevent you from having to restart your voice server and share a new global password just to remove one person from your server.
