Description:

IHU is a Voice over IP (VoIP) application for Linux, that creates an audio stream between two computers easily and with the minimal traffic on the network.

The main features are:

* Peer-to-Peer: the communication takes place directly between the computers (UDP and TCP both supported), without need of session protocols (such as SIP or H323) or other servers in the middle.

* Good audio performance: IHU was born to give the best audio performance, low latency above all. For this purpose IHU is compatible with ALSA, now the default Linux sound architecture, but also with JACK, a low latency sound server. For the audio compression, IHU uses Speex, a codec optimized for speech (and completely free and open source).

* Crypted stream: you have also the possibility to Encrypt/Decrypt the stream using a fast hybrid cryptographic system (RSA + Blowfish)

* Command-line support: the Qt GUI is not strictly necessary, you can run also a textual IHU from command-line (for example if you need to run the program on remote computers).

* Free and Open Source: IHU is totally free and distributed under the terms of GNU General Public License.

The possibilities of use of IHU are endless, for example you can use it like a phone to talk with your friends all around the world, or at home/work, to talk between computers in the LAN (talkback), etc.

Yes, IHU will work if only one computer is NATed, but the NATed computer will be able just to make calls, not to receive calls.
Unfortunately I don't have time to work on a Windows port now. Any help is welcome.

I think that this one will work:
http://ihu.sourceforge.net/ihu-0.5.3-nospeex.tar.bz2

I removed the speex subidrectory, now only the system shared library are used to compile with speex.

I think that for future version I'll remove all static library subdirs inside source package.

Please report me if works, thank you again

I don't know what to say, IHU is indipendent from KDE, so RPM build shouldn't look for the man page in the kde directory... anyway try this last package, but it won't install any man page...

This is strange. RPM Build shouldn't look in /opt/kde3/man for the man page, but in /usr/local/man (default)

Try to configure like this:

./configure --mandir=/opt/kde3/man/

Millions of people in my country, including myself, would like to switch from Windows OS to GNU/Linux. However, we couldnt find a chat application in Linux that supports video chat. Will "I Hear U" include video chat support in the next release? Most people in my country use Yahoo Messenger. It would be great if I Hear U can send and receive video signal form Yahoo Messenger.
