  1. this version like others team talk 5 have a problem with people that have old computers with xp but have 256 megabyte of ram! I remember that in 4 there wasn’t this problem!

  2. please solve this problem for these people! Is a suggestion same for tio escafandra from chile that has an old computer with 256 megabytes of ram and windows xp updated! I understand that xp isn’t the problem, but memory is a problem!

  3. now what is the memory quantity for team talk 5 and what was for team talk 4? I’m sure that 4 run for 256 but 5 is a problem no for me because i Have 4 giga but is a problem for a friend that does a request and suggestion because He doesn’t speak english!

  4. If I remember correctly the guy who had problems running the latest TeamTalk 5 version on Windows XP was using service pack 2. If he upgraded to the latest service pack for XP then it should run on.

  5. No but the problem is when He start the problem! I don’t the kind of problem but i’m sure that is a memory problem! He tried team talk 5 in other computers and runs well! The problem is only in the old computer! Why? Because He has got 256 mega of ram! Team talk 4 runs for He because runs with slow memories but 5 is a problem for 256 megabite! I’m sure that You think for people tthat have only good and much memory like me, but there are people in this moment with old computers!

  6. The problem is when He start the program excuse me for the comment of first! I don’t remember the problem that He reads, but with an other friend team talk 5 for xp runs and runs same in a other Tio’s computer! The problem is only in a computer! Xp isn’t a problem for HHim! An other thing, I don’t now if is possible now, but in xp an other friend Pierpaolo had a problem when He started media files! Gave an error that said that was inpossible to start stream media files!

  7. I just want to put my vote in for Sayegh’s comment
    “Hello, can you please add a dynamic jitter buffer to TeamTalk? That would make TeamTalk more robust against small changes in network latency.”
