I am compiling asterisk 14.0.2 from source and I understand that the opus codec is available from version 14.0.1 according to this blog http://blogs.digium.com/2016/09/30/opus-in-asterisk/ but I am unable to select it in make menuselect. How can I install the codec? I ma installing on ubuntu 14.04.
If it’s “XXX”'d out, then you probably don’t have the xmlstarlet dependency installed. You can see what it depends on by moving the cursor to it:
--- External --- [ ] codec_opus [ ] codec_silk [ ] codec_siren7 [ ] codec_siren14 [ ] codec_g729a Download the Opus codec from Digium. See http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/codec_opus/README. Depends on: xmlstarlet(E), bash(E), res_format_attr_opus(M)
You can see it needs the xmlstarlet and bash external dependendies and the res_format_attr_opus resource module.
