Web links are a mechanism that allows for creating a link similar to a standard web URL, but when someone clicks on it instead of making the browser go to a different web page the browser will start up the Ventrilo client and the link will provide details about the server, port number, server name, server password, channel name and channel password. This feature can be very handy when you want to make information about your server available on your web page, and is a nice convenience so that people will not need to type all of the information into the Ventrilo client.

The following is an example of what a Ventrilo web link will look like.


This link would instruct the browser to start Ventrilo, create a server definition named "MyServer", assign the port number to "3784" and set the hostname to ""

There are other options that can be appended to the link. Options are separated by the '&' character. The following is a complete list of the currently supported options.

servername= (This is the name that would show up in the clients server list).

serverpassword= (Server password if required)

channelname= (The default channel if required)

channelpassword= (The default channels password if required)

Here's an example of combining the server name and server password into the same link:

ventrilo:// ... sword=Pass

Please note that if you include a server or channel password into the link and then post the link in a public location then the password will be visible to everyone.
