    Any way to use server icons in channel descriptions?

    Is there any way of using the server's icons as part of a channel description? I mean rather than having to host them online and use a full URL to get to them, is there a way of kind of internally linking to icons from the server its self?

    Internal file and image linking is possible... but only for files and images which are located inside a channel.
    Code:
    [IMG]ts3image://<image name>?channel=1&path=/[/IMG]
    So if your icon is available in a channel you can access it that way. But you can't break out of the channel with teamspeak... you'll need help from the filesystem. But I highly disrecommend do so...

    If you want to know read here (white on white):
    Create a symbolic link inside your channel, point it to the internal icons files and you can use them.
    "ln -s ../internal/icons icons" works from every channel... But as noted before this is highly disrecommend!

    Do the [~img] tag support other protocols? If so, then it would be a trivial matter to make icons available through web-server.

    Have you ever used TeamSpeak 3?

    Do you really not know that [img] (not sure if that is what you mean by [~img]) does support HTTP? According to latest changelog, HTTPS is also supported.

    It does support it. Question is why linking another sources and sites. Maybe you want your images not to be shown to some users under certain conditions.
    Which is fine with me ;-) I don't need to see it.

    So to say it with my own words:
    You can't link to icons that are by default internaly in teamspeak3.
    You can link to external source like http and https.
    You can link to ts3image inside filebrowser preferably on your server, it doesn't have to be in same channel. You can use single channel with all icons as I do. Just make sure anyone can download from that channel filebrowser, or they will see lot of weird looking descriptions.

    You can obviously download/copy these default internal icons into filebrowser of your server.
    (it appears that in new version it is in zip file? extract and upload it)
    client install folder/gfx/default.zip
