Davi Barker and Michael W. Dean have the FeenPhone pre-IPO (Initial Phone Offering) test. They do a WHOLE SHOW ON RADIO with the first-ever live radio test of FeenPhone, the wonderful VoIP that Derrick Slopey made with input from MWD.
MWD was recorded locally, Davi was recorded over FeenPhone while talking in real time with MWD. The radio stations that broadcast this historic test are listed here. (Weeknight stations.)
MWD was on Windows 7, Davi was on Windows 8.
Davi and MWD reconnected a few times during the show, but in the second hour did not reconnect, and Davi and MWD talked for an hour after the show, and the program worked fine for two hours in that second block.
Derrick will be improving FeenPhone more over the coming weeks and months, and we will be releasing it to the public, for free, once it’s really solid and feature-rich. We’ll also likely be having a second round of fundraising. Feel free to donate now, HERE.
FeenPhone version number is Alpha201412232245.
There were a few drop outs in the first hour, but we changed the settings for the second hour and it mostly solved it, though it increased the latency a tiny bit. Bit it was still workable for radio. Here are the second-hour settings that worked best (though TCP worked better than UDP):
