  1. an other thing: for volume is particular because in classic there isn’t a default volume because isn’t like team talk 4 or the versions first alpa 5. Is a good modify, but We don’t remember the default volume. In 4 the first was 100, the second was 3% for microphone! For media file? there isn’t a default volume!

  2. Hi,

    here is something regarding the volume hotkeys.
    When changing the volume of the media stream using the alt combinations, it does not work with JAWS.
    The reason being JAWS intercepts that command and has its own functionality attached to the alt+ctrl combination.
    Would it be possible to change all the keys, and use shift+left right, and as in previous versions, shift+ctrl+left right for other functions respectively?

    I think other screen readers may not have that problem, but I don’t know if the script developer for the TeamTalk scripts can get round to solving that …

    Regarding media playback:
    Can there be ways to pause a stream, and maybe forward, rewind, next, previous?
    The feature is superb, but would be even more useful if a stream could be paused and resumed at a later time, not just stopped alltogether.

    Regards and good work!

  3. TeamTalk 5 as far back as Alpha 1 had this problem where other parties and sometimes even you couldn’t hear people’s voice streams.
    It even breaks when subscribed to one’s own audio.
    If no other bugs are fixed in TeamTalk 5, please at least address this one and if it can’t be fixed, I hope to hear a reason why in the comments.

    • I can confirm this. I’ve done some more investigating and it seems the server and the regular client are getting the audio data, only the classic clients seem to cut out for about 15-20 seconds.
      This is also user specific, it can happen that one user can be heard on 2 classic clients, but not on a third, or fourth one.
