ARI snoop problem


#1

I am using snoop with the parameters spy: both and whisper: out and the whisper only works if the spied channel is involved in a bridged call when the call ends the whisper stops working. The spy always work the problem is only with the whisper.

Does anyone know why this happens? or is there an option for whisper to always work?


#2

Whisper requires a feed of audio going to the channel in order to be mixed in. If there’s no audio going to it, then it won’t work. This is a core limitation of the API that both Chanspy and Snoop uses. Improving this is tracked on the issue tracker[1] but I don’t believe anyone is working on it.
