Connecting to a server.
Once you have created a user and added a server we can connect to the server. All that is needed is to press the connect button. If there are problems while connecting there are a couple of possibilities that cause this:
1) Your internet connection is down.
2) The server that you try to connect to is down.
3) There is a mistake in either the port number or hostname.

  • How to find out what button you have asigned to speak/how to disable the use of buttons to speak
First we gone find out what button there is currently in use for you to speak. To find this out: press the setup box. This will open a new window named setup. On this window you will see a lot of different things. For this part we take a look at the word that says hotkey. Nex to this you will see the key that is assigned to use: by pressing this key you can speak.
If you do not want to use any keys that is also possible.
First unbox the Use Push to Talk Hotkey (PTT mode) box. Now the Silence time and Sensivity boxex will become clickable. Silence time means how long it needs to be silent near the microphone before it stops transmitting. The sensivity will affect how you need to speak for the microphone to register it.
Also by putting on a high sensivity there is more chance that if you for example put off your microphone ventrillo will register it as speaking. Therefore the sensivity and silence time are things that are different for any person. It will take some tryes to find out what fits best for you.

Now that we have managed the basics it is time to go to the advanced part.
*note advanced ventrillo is only possible while being connected to a server

How to connect your music program to your ventrillo name.
First right click anywhere inside the white part of the main menu. For example somewhere inside the red box. Now a new window will open. This window will have the word intergration. Move your mouse up there. Now the next part will open: this allowes you to choose the music player you use. Click on the music player you use. Now your music player is intergrated whit ventrillo: this means that the song you are listening to will be displayed on the right side of your name.

How to get something to the left of your name
For this part you need the help of a ventrillo admin/moderator. You can recognisze them on the admin/mod tags they have on the left side of their names.
Step once requiers you to go online on the same time a admin/mod is online. Then you ask the admin/mod if he/she can set up the account for you. The admin/mod will add a password to the account you currently use: this password needs to be filled in before connecting to the server (only the first time or when it changes). There is no new account created. The password you want on your account will be choosen by you. The only other person that knows the password will be the mod/admin that set the account for you. Once the password is added the mod/admin will ask you to log of. This so you can add the password. To add the password: click on the arrow next to server (red box). The window where you also added the servername/port will open. Here you fill in the password in the password field (red circle). Once you are ready you press ok and after that connect.

I hope that this helps people that are having problems whit ventrillo.
