( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It sounds like you want to write a program that takes your microphone input and flings it across the net to your friends, while doing the converse for you? Sure, this is possible, but it will be a lot of work. The examples you listed are complex and their value lies mostly in their handling of the innumerable edge cases involved in this sort of thing.

You could start by finding a microphone capture library and sending it over a socket to a receiving client. Then look at tying in Net::SIP (and you'll probably want AnyEvent::SIP).

This will keep you busy for a while, it's not for nothing that VoIP is a big business

By the way, you don't need to even write any code for this! There are many FOSS packages like Jitsi and others that have already done all the hard work and you can self host them.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
