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.

At the moment Video chat is not in the aims of IHU project, even if it may become in the future.
However I think that IHU is not the best candidate to become compatible with other existing IM applications (Yahoo, MSN, etc.), because the main aim of IHU project is to create a clean application indipendent of third part servers.

No, at the moment IHU is works only on Linux, because it only supports the Linux ALSA and JACK sound driver.
For the future it's unlikely that I'm going to release a Windows version, sorry.
