14.8 Installing Mumble on a controlling device - Android / IOS
re: Apple IOS; I have not experimented with Mumble for Apple IOS.
I no longer have any Apple devices. I donated my ageing Ipad Mini to a local school IT department following
the request for tablets and laptops for use in the covid lockdown!
A search of Google play Store for 'mumble' reveals Mumble client apps: Plumble and Mumla in various offerings.
I installed Plumble. The appear to be two versions entitled: Plumble - free and Plumble - Mumble VOIP
The Plumble - Mumble VOIP version appears to be free - I installed this on a modern Vankyo 10 inch tablet.
Before installing, make sure that the RPi is running with the mumble-server active.
Start the app.
As soon as the app starts you are offered the creation of a certificate - tap Yes to this.
Then tap the + icon top right to add a server.
Enter the RPi server IP address, eg: 192.168.1.117.
Accept the default port = 64738.
Add a label and username of you choice.
Leave the password field blank.
A connection box will appear top left - Tap the connection box to connect.
An Untrusted certificate box appears - tap Allow to accept it.
With the transceiver running I had immediate Rx audio.
Now click the menu ion top left and then Settings
General tab: Uncheck: Chat notifications, text to speech and load external images
Check: Auto Reconnect
Audio tab: Transmit mode - set this to continuous (This will disable many of the voice control options)
Handset mode: - uncheck this
Microphone volume: You need to adjust this for your rig's ALC / comp indications
(mine is set to 30% ... using the tablets built in microphone)
Detection threshold, PTT key, PTT Hot Corner, PTT Sound,
Hide PTT button, Toggle PTT, Half duplex mode
- all these are disabled because we set Transmit mode = continuous.
Input sample rate: - The 11025Hz option should be adequate for voice
Input quality: I set 72000bps to match what was recommended for RPi client setup.
Enable speech processor: No ? - We can experiment with this.
Disable Opus Codec: No
