    "Ventrilo will require less resource usage, both system and network related, than Skype. This is an especially useful trait in gaming where most users demand minimal application usage to ensure better in-game frame rates. The server can also act as a filter and management system, enabling more expressive user and moderator roles. Servers have the ability to create “Channels,” which act as partitions or virtual chatrooms within the server, allowing users to have conversions with certain subsets of the server population without having to go into a completely different conference room as you would with Skype. Rules can also be defined within the context of a specific channel."

    "Skype and Ventrilo are both excellent tools. However, Skype may be more suitable for social groups (family chats, etc.) as it is easy to setup, use and costs nothing. Whereas Ventrilo may be more ideal for gaming and business users who require greater technical efficiency and more management tools at the cost of money and a greater learning curve."

    For a very few people Skype is a good choice. For a big group Ventrillo is still king.

    I really hate having to call everyone and add everyone. Vent is much better and easier. Why go through stupid hassles that I don't need to.

    They can add themselves. They can see there is a call in progress and hit "join call." It's one click.

    This is exactly what I'm talking about man. People don't like it because they don't know how to use it.

    Ok - first of all, that website is called myventriloserver.com and second, so much of that information is just inaccurate. I can easily debate half the claims regarding Skype. But it's cool. Don't use it. I don't care.

    It's dumb I like to choose server, click join, pick a channel then be done with it. 3 easy steps.

    Here's something to check out, this crap certainly doesn't happen with mumble or vent.

    That was posted 2006.

    C'mon guys. If you're going to tell me I'm wrong avoid the following:

    Posting articles from 5 years ago (versions, versions, versions).
    Referring me / us to a website with a domain name like ventrocks.com or ventriloisbetter.com

    It's not going to hurt me if you don't use Skype. I don't have stock in the company.

    Regardless, I'd bet a hundred bucks people ripping on Skype use vent and have never actually tried Skype, they're just scouring the internet looking for reasons not to switch despite my claims. You know how the internet works, right? If you type in "Rift sucks" you're going to find all sorts of facts to back up the statement. If you type in "Rift rules" you'll find the other side of the argument.

    I'm trying to help.

    And as far as this:

    "It's dumb I like to choose server, click join, pick a channel then be done with it. 3 easy steps."

    With Skype, it's one click to join the call / channel and you're in. It's like instant messenger with voice / video conferencing. How is that not better than voice over IP amateur night?

    Skype without a doubt ****s all over Vent. Once I got Skype I hated ever having to use Vent. Don't knock it to you try it.

    I've been using Mumble for past few months. Out of popular 3 (Vent, TS, Mumble) this one is the best.

    What is mumble? I'm guessing it's another video/chat thing?

    Good to know! I would feel like I had to take the pony tail out and change out of the pjs if I had to use the video chat
    I liked Vent, but I won't discount using Skype until I try it. Has it become a popular choice?
    I left WoW (and vent) 2 years ago, so I have no idea what people are using now.
