In order to use the software, your computer must meet the following minimum system requirements.
However, in order to take advantage of all of the advanced features of VoipLip and to experience the best sound quality possible, we highly recommend the following configuration.
Downloading the Softphone
The software is free to download and you can always get the latest version here. If you have any problems using VoipLip, please first make sure that you are using the most recent version of the software.
To download the softphone to your computer, simply click the download link. Save the installation file to your computer. Be sure to remember where you saved the file (for instance the Desktop).
Double-click the installation file you just downloaded to start installing the YellowVoip on your computer.
The VoipLip softphone starts automatically each time you start windows. With the sofware always running, other users will be more likely to find you online. You can change these settings at any time from the YellowVoip program by selecting "options".
Starting VoipLip for the First Time
The first time you start the VoipLip softphone, you will be asked to choose a User Name and password. The User Name (username*voipinfo) and password fields are required in order to use VoipLip. You can choose any name but it must be at least 6 characters in length. If the name is already in use by someone else you will have to try another name.
Making your first VoipLip call
For a call to any regular phone, enter the desired number in the textbox and click the dial-button.
Please note that when you call a number (even if it's local) you should always dial 00 + countrycode + areacode + subscribernumber)
Improving Sound Quality
To get the best possible sound quality, we highly recommend you try the following:
Use a headset with a built in microphone. Headsets are available for purchase at most computer retailers and will dramatically improve sound quality.
Tell your friend to get a headset. Note that voice quality is affected by the equipment on both sides of the conversation. The best way to ensure high quality sound is to have a headset on both ends of the conversation.
If you don't have a headset, you are still likely to improve sound quality if you:
Use headphones instead of your computer speakers
Try moving the microphone closer or further away from your mouth
Use an external microphone (note that most laptops use low-quality microphones)
Update your soundcard drivers
Note that if you don't own a microphone, you may be able to use a pair of headphones as a temporary solution by connecting these to the microphone jack of your sound card. Try it!
The softphone is divided into several tabs, each with a specific purpose.
The Contacts Tab shows other VoipLip users which you have added to your Contact List. The icon next to the User Name indicates the Online Status of these users. You can right-click any User Name in your Contact List to see a number of choices for communicating with, or managing this user in your Contact List.
The Dial pad Tab shows you a graphic representation of the buttons you find on any ordinary phone, and they work accordingly.
Speed-dial text field
The Text Box near the bottom of the main VoipLip window allows you to call directly by entering their phone number and pressing enter.
