    9 Mumble is a voice chat program for gamers written on top of Qt and Opus.
   10 
   11 There are two modules in Mumble; the client (mumble) and the server
   12 (murmur). The client works on Win32/64, Linux and Mac OS X, while the
   13 server should work on anything Qt can be installed on.
   14 
   15 Note that when we say Win32, we mean Windows XP or newer.
   16 
   17 Running Mumble
   18 ==============
   19 
   20 On Windows, after installation, you should have a new Mumble folder in your
   21 Start Menu, from which you can start Mumble.
   22 
   23 On Mac OS X, to install Mumble, drag the application from the downloaded
   24 disk image into your /Applications folder.
   25 
   26 Once Mumble is launched, you need a server to connect to. Either create your
   27 own or join a friend's.
   28 
   29 Running Murmur on Unix-like systems
   30 ===================================
   31 
   32 Murmur should be run from the command line, so start a shell (command prompt)
   33 and go to wherever you installed Mumble. Run murmur as
   34 
   35 murmurd [-supw <password>] [-ini <inifile>] [-fg] [v]
   36 
   37 -supw   Set a new password for the user SuperUser, which is hardcoded to
   38         bypass ACLs. Keep this password safe. Until you set a password,
   39         the SuperUser is disabled. If you use this option, murmur will
   40         set the password in the database and then exit.
   41 
   42 -ini    Use an inifile other than murmur.ini, use this to run several instances
   43         of murmur from the same directory. Make sure each instance is using
   44         a separate database.
   45 
   46 -fg     Run in the foreground, logging to standard output.
   47 
   48 -v      More verbose logging.
   49 
   50 Running Murmur on Mac OS X
   51 ==========================
   52 
   53 Murmur is distributed separately from the Mumble client on Mac OS X.
   54 It is called Static OS X Server and can be downloaded from the main webpage.
   55 
   56 Once downloaded it can be run in the same way as on any other Unix-like system.
   57 For more information please see the 'Running Murmur on Unix-like systems' above.
   58 
   59 Running Murmur on Win32
   60 =======================
   61 
   62 Doubleclick the Murmur icon to start murmur. There will be a small icon on your
   63 taskbar from which you can view the log.
   64 
   65 To set the superuser password, run murmur with the parameters '-supw <password>'.
   66 
   67 Bandwidth usage
   68 ===============
   69 
   70 Mumble will use 10-40 kbit/s outgoing, and the same incoming for each user.
   71 So if there are 10 other users on the server with you, your incoming
   72 bandwidth requirement will be 100-400 kbit/s if they all talk at the same time.
