I Hear U (IHU) is a Voice over IP (VoIP) application for GNU/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 GNU/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).

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, etc.
