Lots of key words. Just generally, how well does Wine handle voice chat?

Check the appdb. Some voice chat apps work, some don't:

Teamspeak:
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... n&iId=6833

Skype:
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... n&iId=1592

Ventrilo:

I'm curious, why are you running these apps in Wine? Teamspeak and Skype
already have native Linux versions, Ventrilo server for Linux has been
available for ages and a client is under development. I don't see any
benefit to running them in Wine on production.

However, if you are using them to test Wine's audio support, then that
is a different matter (and probably an excellent test as well)

Ventrilo client for Linux has been in development ever since my guild
on EQ has used it a couple of years ago. I've checked back several
times, but I don't see any promised dates for it. I wish they would
switch, but it's a rather large guild and I'm only one person.

Alan, you hit the nail on the head. It's a test thing. I sort of thought
that if something worked in Wine that would help with our guild experiments
to set up voice chat.

Thanks for the replies, folks.
