Gspeakfreely is a VoIP system with a flexible component system. It implements a set of audio processing components which can be connected to each other or mixed together. The most important components are net in/output, which implement VoIP functionality and the OSS-DSP in/output component. Additionally there is a ISDN in/output component that allows making actual phone connections, and a file input component that can also play Internet radio streams. Also included is a fading plug-in, that can for example fade incoming calls into your music. New components can be developed for specific purposes, and combined with existing ones.

The net in/output components also have conference support bult-in. The net input component can mix incoming audio data from different hosts.

If you want to use all the components, you have to use linux. But you can use it on some PDAs (with linux installed), too. The arm-linux binary can be used e.g. on an Compaq Ipaq.

You can use parts of gspeakfreely also on other unixes. On Solaris you have only the file_input, net_input, net_output, and monitor_output components.

Here are some key features of "gspeakfreely":
Encrpytion is easier configurable
You can use gpg to transfer the key
Buddy list (with an sflwld server, try the server running on
Voice activation
Easier config file syntax
Partly support of the RTP protocol
LD_PRELOAD to redirect output to /dev/dsp from other applications to gspeakfreely
Enhanced playlist
