    Solved How to make a bot / server side client with audio support in a VPS?

    Hi! I've been these last days trying to find out how to make the following.

    I want a TeamSpeak client/bot that will be connected all the time, with which i can play some alarm or warning sounds when i'm going to make a change in the server and i need to shut it down. Like a poke all clients but with sound through a whisper list.

    My current setup is a Debian Squeeze VPS where my TeamSpeak server is hosted.

    The first thing i've been able to achieve is to run the TeamSpeak client in my VPS with tightvnc and fluxbox:

    Now, like you can see, i have problems with the audio. My question is:

    How do i manage to enable sound in my VPS and use it in the TS3 client?

    My goal is to play an audio file or something and that all users can hear it trough this server bot. I'd need a way to have some kind of virtual audio cable from output to input and i think a virtual sound card that allows me to play the audio files.

    Thank you ^^

    Music Channel

    Hi,

    I thought about adding a channel to my teamspeak server, which has music playing in the background 24-7. Either through local stored *.mp3 files or reading from a webstream (e.g. radio).

    Searching a bit i just found possibilies to stream local music to the server.

    Is there any way to configure the server or a client running on the server to automatically stream music to all clients connected to a specific channel?

    Greetings
    Dero

    you could use virtual audio cable, then have any music player play whatever music you want to the virtual audio cable device.
    Then you would just have a client sit in the channel you want and use the virtual audio cable device as capture device.

    Can I set this up with command line only?
    And so far I just found a Windows version of Virtual Audio Cable, but my server runs on Linux.

    You should've said so in the first place Anyway I moved the thread to the linux forum.

    Not sure about virtual audio cable for linux, there might be alternatives on linux though.
    On linux you also need X-Server to run the client.

    that x-server is required i know. that would be the smaller problem, although i would like to get it working withoug having a client running all the time. but i don't know if this is possible at all ...

    no you need a client running to be able to send voice data to the server

    Radio channel on teamspeak

    Hello.
    First of all i dont want to make any "music bot" for my teamspeak.
    Id rather do something like...

    1. Install TS3 client on centos with no gui
    2. install sort of virtual cable.
    3. install andd run and audio client that can play stream from radio channels.

    this way, i would have "fake" client connected to my teamspeak server which would just "transfer forward" radio channel.
    But the question is...

    How can i do such thing?
    What virtual cable i should install? What audio player?

    Help please

    Isn't no gui also no sound / soundcard?
    And you must use a real client to send or recieve any voice data.

    That's impossible.


    thread moved, this is no SDK question!

    question is...

    after we install ts3 client and somehow manage to configure it to use virtual audio cable, we can try move further into music player ;p

    No way, you can use audio on the linux?

    I got mine working a week ago on CentOS, using the instructions soundboard plugin webpage. Sound works fine.
    Except, since the commands they have instructions for is ubuntu, so you gotta kinda wing it which is what I did.
