What are some good voice chat programs that I can use. I have already have tried three that I am not that satisfied with: Skype, Oovoo, and Mumble. Mumble is good unless someone tells me specifically how to make my own server if not forget it. So back to the main question. I really want something nice and simple that does not lag me like skype when I play games. I want somehing that I can use when i'm doing art and other things. What I really want in the Voice Chat program is something where you need a special password or something to get in to the chat so only my friends can talk to me and not randoms. I think that sums it up.

You have to have a server but you can set up your own dedicated server if you want to for free, or you could pay a monthly fee for a company to host it for you.

Mumble is the way to go. Did you read through their setup wiki?

Facebooks new voice chat also. It's good if your talking to one person but I'm not sure how many your talking to.

Oh, also with TeamSpeak 3 you can put passwords on your server/chat room so only your friends can get in if they have the password. Also, if you have admin powers on the server you can make it so you need chat permission to voice chat which also adds security.

Back in my MMO days. We used to use Ventrilo for everything. It had password protected servers that you could host yourself or have remote hosted.
