Dave,I love this mod. But, unfortunately I have recently been forced to abandon Ventrilo in favor of TeamSpeak. Would it be possible to integrate TeamSpeak as an option?

Ill have to take a look at how TeamSpeak works, If it is possible (I know there is a mod for phpbb portal for teamspeak). Ill see if it is intergenerational ill do it. If it's not Ill try and build a teamspeak version of this mod.
Edit:
Well I found something, for PHPBB portal, I am now looking at how it is done, and ill have a try at turning it into something like this
http://www.italiatela.com/ (3rd box down) That's what it currently looks like, so Ill have to see what modifications Ill need to do to turn it into something like this.

Needless to say its a lot harder when you don't know the teamspeak system.

Dave, thanks for looking into TeamSpeak.

Does the the Vent mod list connected user by channel? When I had it working I never had users in different channels. If not, I would prefer TeamSpeak to show just who is connected. AT this time I don't need all the channel and other info.

I, myself, don't know much about TeamSpeak either. Keep telling myself to learn about the URLPost setting in the config file. Which has something to do with TS posting info to that URL. What does it all mean?

Ventrilo is better than TeamSpeak in all aspects, I wouldn't even add the Teamspeak feature. Maybe make a separate mod...

I don't think this is the place to debate the merits of Ventrilo over TeamSpeak. I just want to be able to show who is connected to my TeamSpeak server on my forum. Yes, I'd prefer to be using Ventrilo, but that is no longer an option for me.

There is a lot of differences between ventrilo and teamspeak, the hardest section is going to be trying to get it to ignore the channels and just list them.

Ventrilo just lists the people who are online regardless of the channels.

Currently working on v0.2.0, cleaned up some of the code and added a new acp option for the server info, just wondering how to call something from several files. Ill get it don't worry!

(this is the first mod I took over and/or ever have done, I only know some phpbb3 from installing and reading other peoples mods, I know basic php and I thought what a great way to learn more.)

I'm not debating whether TeamSpeak or Ventrilo is better, I just think it should be a completely separate mod.
