Opus codec

Opus is an Open Source codec standardized by the [ IETF].

See RFC 6716.

Information about Opus

Different Opus modes

Opus has different modes (Celt mode, Silk mode and a Hybrid mode): The first one has the best performance.


Newer versions of Opus are always backward compatible, so there will be no codec problems for example in Mumble as with Celt, Speex, Opus.

Hearing tests and comparions

Usage in Mumble

Mumble uses the Opus codec since version 1.2.4.

Advantages of Opus compared to CELT (for example in Mumble)

We made few tests in Mumble, few subjective facts:

  • Even with an audio bandwidth of only 8 kbit/s Opus spoken word is easy to understand. With CELT it sounds very distorted.
  • Opus with 30 kbit/s sounds similar to CELT with 50 kbit/s.

Another advantage (found on freenode in #mumble):

  • Correction in case packetloss sounds better with Opus.
