GFN Spotlight: Mumble Server Host

It’s time to start yelling at your friends!

We all do it, some better than others, some with laugher, others with rage but all with excited dedication and ferocity. I am of course talking about online gaming. Playing online multiplayer games has become such a huge phenomenon over the past 20 years that, well, it is no longer a phenomenon. And if you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where another player in your game was trying to chat with you, and all while you are exerting your best efforts to frag the n00b or lead the raid by way of keyboard, acronyms, and text interfaces, then you aren’t doing it right.

Mumble Server Host believes that communication is key to serious gameplay. After all, your games have evolved, your rig has evolved, so why hasn’t your voice chat client?

“I think communicating via VOIP while playing computer games can help the mental status of many gamers.  If you are sitting in a room alone for hours and never speak to another soul….well that can really destroy your social skills over time.” Says MumbleServerHost founder Tim Ross.

As a gamer himself Tim developed MSH when his Bad Company 2 clan (No Fly Zone – needed a new chatroom provider. “I decided to try hosting my own Mumble VOIP chatroom instead of going to with the same old Ventrilo providers we had used in the past.  I could not believe how easy it was to setup a Mumble server and how little bandwidth it used so I decided to start a hosting service.”

And with that a new option emerged.

“We service guilds and clans that play most of the popular MMO’S and first person shooters.  MSH runs servers in the United States and Europe and offers full 128kbps bandwidth to its customers.  All of our Mumble servers come with a web site based control panel for easy web based server administration.”

But what makes MSH truly unique is that it is run and used by the exact same people who subscribe to the service. “We are gamers who love Mumble and how crystal clear it is compared to Ventrilo.”

“The Mumble Server Host software was designed mainly for interactive gaming but, it can also be used by businesses and corporations to hold off site meetings.”

Mumble is similar to popular VOIP programs such as Ventrilo and TeamSpeak but with lower latency and innovative features such as live overlay and positional sound. And they continue to strive for more. Knowing what the gaming community wants MSH recently released a website widget that allows customers to display that current status view of their Mumble server on their website. You can see an example of this widget in action.

MSH is also working on an Android app to allow its Mumble server admins to view and manage their servers via their Android based phones and tablets.

You’ll also find MSH supports the gaming community by way or regular contributions to Child’s Play Charity , a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games through over 60 hospitals worldwide.

Bred out of the gaming world itself, BY gamers and FOR gamers, Mumble Server Host is our newest GamerFitNation Spotlight.
