Radegast Voice installation instructions

Update, November 30th: You can now download Radegast 2.20 with SL Voice, thanks to an update by Cinder Roxley – see here for the blog post with source code links, or follow the link below to download the installer.

As reported in Radegast: recovering Voice capabilities, it is no longer possible to install Radegast with working SLVoice, as by default it uses a version of SlVoice obtained from a location which is no longer valid. To overcome this, Beq Janus and Whirly Fizzle have provided instructions on how to install Radegast with Voice, using either a back-up version of the original Voice package used by Radegast, or using the most recent Voice package available from Linden Lab.

It is up to you which you use.For the non-technical, using the back-up Radegast Voice package is perhaps the easier of the two options. However, if you decide use this option, please keep in mind that Linden Lab will be blocking all older versions of SLVoice from connecting to the service in the near future. This is being done as a security measure, but it will mean that the back-up Radegast Voice package will no longer work (at which point the instructions relating to it will be removed from this page).

Using the Back-up Radegast Voice Package

  1. If you already have Radegast installed and Voice isn’t working, remove it from your system.
  2. Download the backup Radegast Voice package from https://storage.googleapis.com/google-code-archive-downloads/v2/code.google.com/radegast/RadegastVoicepack-1.0.exe
  3. Run this file and click OK to accept the terms and conditions then to confirm the installation.
  4. Download (if required) and run the Radegast installer. Note you can still select “install voice pack” – the installer will simply detect Voice is already installed.
  5. Run Radegast and confirm voice is working.

Using the Most Recent SLVoice Package

Note that until Linden Lab block older versions of the SLVoice package, you can use the instructions above if you do not feel confident with the following instructions.

  1. Logout of Radegast.
  2. Open you Radegast installation folder – by default this is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Radegast
  3. Delete all the following files if they are present – you will only see these files if you already have the voice plugin installed for Radegast.
    • alut.dll
    • ortp.dll
    • SLVoice.exe
    • uninstall_voice.exe
    • Vivox-License.rtf
    • vivoxsdk.dll
    • wrap_oal.dll
  4. Download the most recent SLVoice files from http://automated-builds-secondlife-com.s3.amazonaws.com/hg/repo/vivox_3p-slvoice/rev/302004/arch/CYGWIN/installer/slvoice-4.6.0017.22050.302004-windows-302004.tar.bz2
    • Note that you may need to install WinRar, to unpack these files.
  5. The TAR file contains the following files, all of which must be unpacked to your Radegast installation folder for Voice to work:
    • ca-bundle.crt
    • libsndfile-1.dll
    • ortp.dll
    • SLVoice.exe
    • vivoxoal.dll
    • vivoxsdk.dll
  6. Log-in with Radegast and test Voice.
