Not sure on COD4 but for other games you need a program to talk to others in the game,

A program used by many online gamers is Teamspeak,
I use it often when playing online games.

Depending on which game server you are on you will need to know the servers teamspeak server, this can be found by either chatting to the guys in the game or sometimes the server owner will have a forum with the Teamspeak server listed.

If your hosting your own games then you will need to setup your own Teamspeak server, which is pretty simple then all you need to do is let others in the game server know.

Hope this helps.

Another VOIP (Voice over IP) program used by gamers is Ventrilo, click here.

Must say I never got around to using a standalone solution myself. I normally just use the one in game (if at all).

If you're playing as part of a (tightly knit) squad, having voice comms. can really make the difference. It helps to keep players focussed and playing together for specific objectives, and of course provides a warning system if there are unspotted enemies near by.

In Battlefield 2, you can use the in game VOIP to talk to squad mates, if the server you're on supports it or during screen, there may be an address listed for either Teamspeak or Ventrilo servers run by the game host. I've not used these yet but understand they're a superior solution as you can chat away without having to hold down a key etc. Communication is what it's all about! :)

Only use it on flight simx, and the link is alway's there in the breifing room before you join the session. Not sure about COD4 and other games, but maybe a look on the official site might help?

Hope this helps
