What's This?

LiveLink is a voice over IP software. It enables two users to talk to each other via voice through the Internet. All you need is an on-line computer and a microphone. LiveLink uses the MPEG-4 AAC technology to compress audio before transmitting it over the network. The AAC encoding is performed using libfaac and libfaad2 which are released under GPL by You can also exchange files through the integrated download manager.

How to get it working?

LiveLink uses the UDP protocol to deliver to audio. By default, it uses the port 3333 to do the job. In order to get the audio session working, you'll have to enable that port on your ADSL modem/router (port forwarding) or within your firewall. This is really mandatory for the whole program to work. File transmission is based on TCP w/ a context being exchanged at the initialization of the audio session through UDP.

Future work...

The next major version of LiveLink will feature an inclusion of a whole framework to support more audio codecs such as GSM, AMR and AMR-WB. Stay tuned for the 2.0 release.
