    I know that there's a homebrew app. that lets you use the DS as a PC game controller and I was wondering if there's anything that lets you use the DS Mic as a PC Microphone. I would be using it for ventrillo.

    If it was actually a good idea, it'd be done by now.
    Too much would have to be done, the only sane idea would to be using a card that can connect USB while in the DS.
    The microphone is also terrible quality.
    Streaming voice from DS to PC would likely take a lot more than the DS can handle, is what I'm saying.

    When full-out video can be streamed to the DS fine (DS2Win), I have a hard time believing that sound is out of the question. The mic is bad quality, but it would still be possible.

    the mic actually isn't bad its just a lot of people have the idea the closer the better but its just the opposite you need to back off the mic or it will be overblown.

    The mic isn't that good. Mainly because if I'm too far, it won't hear me but if I'm too close it's still not good.

    It'd be nice to have a program like Skype or Ventrilo so we can talk to people across the country over WiFi. But before we can develop that, we should start on a WiFi chatroom program... unless they already have something like that. Do they? Actually, an online chatroom might be a bad idea because it takes forever to type. Actually, nevermind again... www.ebuddy.com FTW!

    Woctochat or what ever it's called is the closest to that Idea that I can think of, but I probably have the name wrong and the same type of thing could be done a lot better.

    i could use something like this because my computer doesnt seem to recognize any kind of microphone, so then i can use my DS to chat with my buddys, who atleast have a flash card. . .

    Who cares?
    I agree that I would be nice to use your ds's mic on your pc. I have like a ton of cell phone head sets, but I can't use my phone as a mic, and I can't find adapter cables for the headsets themselves [​IMG].

    the ds mic is ok, but far to sensitive, and easily picks up interference
