After testing Loudtalks with several users (thanks guys!) I realized that we need to do a better job communicating how the software works and all cool features we have. This guide (based on version
0.9.0.24 0.9.0.26, updated) explains Loudtalks step-by-step.
Download and Installation
The download is less than a megabyte and would take ~20 seconds on DSL connection. Once you received the file, launch it and follow the wizard.
If previous version of Loudtalks is running during installation, it will be terminated automatically.
We released a minor Loudtalks update today (version 0.9.0.20), which improves sound quality (makes it suck less) under bad network conditions (read — TechCrunch40 WiFi network).
If you want to try Loudtalks quickly, feel free to add me to your contacts.
- Login to Loudtalks
- Go to “Tools > Add a contact…”
- Enter “alex” and click Next, and then Finish
Leave Loudtalks running and when I come online I’ll add you and we can do a quick test.
See TechCrunch coverage here.
Unfortunately the demo was screwed by a technical issue. Loudtalks software worked fine, however the audio on the stage didn’t work at all (A/V guy said that the audio cable was
broken unplugged by people stepping on it).
Thanks for your support and I hope you’ll enjoy the product. If you have suggestions or issues to report please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
