IMO ILBC beats G.729 in terms of quality, especially in environments where
packet loss can occur. It's about the same computationally-speaking but
it's also royalty-free.
GSM is my second choice but it eats quite a bit more bandwidth in
That packetizer link has no comparisons with any OSS codecs, which is
unfortunate because it seems to pass itself off as an authoritative source
on bandwidth use in IP telephony.
