On RISC OS VoIP client emerges:

The audio input API used is the device driver I designed for the Iyonix. It uses DeviceFS so it's tremendously simple for applications to use. I've now released the source for this driver and its example application driver, along with the specification of the API at [link] - if anyone writes an audio input driver for other machines using this interface then the VoIP client would be able to work with them.

On New free MSN client available for all:

Yahoo - MSN interworking is done entirely by the MSN server's side, but it requires me to use a later MSN protocol which is a lot of work. I can do it, but I got to the stage where I thought if I keep making large changes like that I'd never release it!

My understanding of audio support is that it's not doable because it uses a patented codec. Surprisingly though, video (webcam) support IS possible, I have a library to do it, I just don't know of any RISC OS webcam protocols to handle the local side of things.

On New free MSN client available for all:

The authentication is done by HTTP over SSL - I use the OpenSSL library ported by the NetSurf developers (thanks!) to do that part, then I talk HTTP myself (it only needs a relatively small part of HTTP to do the job).

In fact the OpenSSL library is so big, and it's only used briefly while signing in, that authentication is handled by a separate program which quits once it's done its job.

Incidentally, Parmesan is also capable of talking the MSN protocol proper over HTTP, in case the normal port is blocked by a firewall or proxy.
