It's working.

I sang "Goodbye to Montana."

Folks said it came through ok.

Jacko was singing and it was breaking up some, but he says he has an old slow machine. His computer, I mean.

I just logged in. Had to have them send me my pword, figured they would tell me they couldn't find a membership, but lo and behold - there it was in my email box.

JennieG, yes, you need to join Paltalk to use it. It's free, though they'll bombard you with offers to "upgrade" (for a fee) your membership, if it's at all like it was the last time I used it. Admittedly, that was years ago.

Hmmm. It sure would be nice to resurrect those three-continent song circles. When we had them, I was living in a duplex, and my office was right next to my neighbor's bedroom. Sometimes, I'd sing too loud (or too badly), and my neighbor would pound on the wall. And he was such a nice neighbor.....
I moved my computer to the other side of the house so I wouldn't bother him, but it wasn't the same after that.

Gee, I have a Zoom Handy H2 recorder now, and it's supposed to work as a computer microphone. I wonder if I could get it to work with PalTalk.

Haven't used Paltalk in years (too many late nights, at the time, no Linux support, etc.) but I've just tried the web based Paltalk Express on Linux.

Their Flash application would not let me log in (the password entry box wouldn't accept any characters after entering a user name) but I was able to able to resolve that by using a 64 bit beta plugin from Adobe
here

I've got playback sound but I don't know about the mic - I can't find any means of testing it. Other than that, I'm finding it impossibly slow (although sound is not breaking up), entering rooms hit and miss (and sometimes it will pop up telling me it has failed only to open the room) and I've once got stuck on a cycle of getting logged out, attempting to log in again and getting prompted again to log in before I've had a chance to type anything. I'm not impressed.

Have just tried a Zoom H4 on Vista. Seems fine for Paltalk although I can't see an obvious way of using an output other than its own headphone socket (which is better than my laptop speaker so I'm not bothered).

I think it's different to the H2 though Joe. The H4 works as a sound card (and will even allow other mics with XLR connectors to be be plugged in) but I think the H2 works as a USB mic.

Oh well, I might browse around there, see if something like the "Live and Unplugged" room comes on line.

Phew! That was a toughie. I haven't done anything in paltalk since 2006, apparently and wasn't even sure of my nickname, let alone pw. I found Rog's info in an old email and finally sussed out what mine was by trail and error!

The ROOM looks good, Max, except it was empty. Who's up for a set schedule of world-wide song sessions?

With apologies to Guy Lombardo:

It'll seem like old times, chanties, 'hrans & mandos
Just like old times, staying up for hours
Making music with you, doing things we used to do
It'll seem like old times being here with you
Being here with you
Being here with you

I'm torn. I loved Paltalk when we had it before and would love to make contact again but here in the UK it mainly happened after midnight and I'm not into staying up that late anymore.

Mmm - need to think about this.

It's a great experience --- can I resist temptation??

Max's link seems to hang at 48% loaded. I'll try yet again later, or try to find the room directly.

Can I use the mudcat room at paltalk with only audio, no video? My computer is pre-camera and I don't have an external one.

Yes, Crowhugger, you can opt out of the video feature. Don't know about the other stuff.

Leadfingers, what happens when you try to register?

Anyone up for going in now?

Well I have erased Paltalk from my computer, and I ain't going to use Google+. I already have too many applications on my PC. So that's it then, I guess.

As always, our rules for inclusion of cool features is that they won't require you to download, install or purchase any software (outside of perhaps a browser plugin).

Paltalk offered their embed-able free video chat so I tried it, but their incessant badgering to download the app was unbearable. The product they offer, from the host's side, that I would want is over $80 per month anyway. Junk!

That being said, I reopened the room "mudcatcafe" if anyone wants to try it out. Above, or try this.


I'm predicting (hoping) that Google+ will merge technologies with Google Friend Connect and solve a dozen of our shortcomings. No software needed.

Still hunting for the ultimate virtual audio/video song sharing environment... Stay tuned.

I was scrolling down, reading messages, when music started playing on my PC and I knew I hadn't started it, anywhere. Lo and behold, it was Max trying out the PalTalk room one more time. After we sorted out my mic, we had a nice chat about the different places available. Have to say, I am excited about google+.

Thanks, Max!
