    There is another mesh client that allows the phone to use the mesh network for streaming video or voice like skype. Can OG do the same?

    What is the app name?

    I haven't tried doing it myself, but it should be possible (if you are streaming from the Internet).

    Lots of streaming apps work over Open Garden... the ones that don't are simply limited by their usage of the Android OS.

    What other mesh client are you talking about?

    There is an android mesh client called "The Serval Mesh", they mention making phone calls over their mesh network.

    You can make VoIP calls over Open Garden - with TextMe for example. They're listed in our recommended apps page if you want to check them out.

    Serval claims to do more but isn't as reliable in practice. Have you tested it out? What were your thoughts?

    I tried it, your needs to be rooted for their mesh to work. OG is much easier to use.
