Welcome to pyVoIP’s documentation!¶
PyVoIP is a pure python VoIP/SIP/RTP library. Currently, it supports PCMA, PCMU, and telephone-event.
Please note this is is still in development and can only originate calls with PCMU. In future, it will be able to initiate calls in PCMA as well.
This library does not depend on a sound library, i.e. you can use any sound library that can handle linear sound data such as pyaudio or even wave. Keep in mind PCMU only supports 8000Hz, 1 channel, 8 bit audio.
In this documentation we will use the following terms:
- For the purposes of this documentation, the term client will be defined as the person calling this library.
- For the purposes of this documentation, the term user will be defined as the programmer, i.e. the ‘server-side’ if using the Client-Server model.
