Asterisk leave codecs untouchable

How to leave codecs untachable in sterisk .

For example – i have two accounts on same servers .
Ona account is forced to GSM codec, another – to ULAW.

HOw can i make asterisk not to translate this users?

for each account in * you can define the codec preference order

ie

disallow=all
allow=ulaw
allow=gsm
allow=ilbc

this disallows all, then allows ulaw,gsm,ilbc in that order of preference. No other codecs are accepted. You could put allow=all at the end to allow all other codecs.

in other words make sure whatever codec you want to use is enabled on both accounts.

also the devices you use must support a common codec. Asterisk will try to avoid translating whenever possible but if either the accounts are set to not use a common codec, or the devices/softphones attached to them are not set to allow a common codec, then asterisk will translate becasue it has no choice.

THATs IT .

How can i deny asterisk to translate in this case ?
I don`t want asterisk to translate codecs in any cases .

Maybe another explanation .
I wand every codecs on the system to act as passthrough.

If i unload all codecs, so i could see only ---- in my show translation. Will all codecs act in passthrough mode?

maybe i found the way to force act asterisk as softswitch. And not to take desigions of codec capabillity.

Today i will check this.

  1. in sip_conf
    allow=all

  2. in CLI
    show modules like codec

  3. unload … ( here you put modules from 2. )

  4. unload all codecs until you see in CLI>show translations - only -

no no no

Asterisk will try as hard as it can to avoid translating, in every situation. The ONLY situation where asterisk will translate is one where asterisk NOT translating means the call does not go through.
When the call is set up, it tries to find a codec that both parties support. If it does, that codec is used, and is passed through without any doing. The only time * even looks at it is if you have dial options like tT, Rr, etc or features.conf that require * to look for DTMF tones. Either way it does NOT transcode.
Thus, if you set allow=all everywhere, there is the highest chance that a mutual codec will be found. Almost all devices support ulaw or alaw if nothing else, so one of those will probably be picked. With allow=all, codecs are choosen based on what each side of the call asks for. ASTERISK WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE A CODEC BOTH SIDES CAN SUPPORT AND NOT TRANSLATE WHEN A COMMONLY ACCEPTED CODEC IS AVAILABLE. However sometimes it isnt- say one device suppports only ulaw and the other only supports alaw. In this case, there is NO codec that both devices support, and asterisk will translate. However asterisk will try as hard as it can not to let this happen.

So my point is that if you don’t want asterisk to do codec conversion, just allow=all everywhere and make sure your devices aren’t being picky about codecs. Then you are all set.

A also think so . BUT. NOT NOW.

I make such test.

EYEBEAM ( GSM ) -> asterisk -> EYEBEAM ( ULAW, GSM )

first eyebeam have turned on codec GSM on client side
second eyebeam - GSM and ULAW

On asterisk i put allow=all

then - i start a call. And asterisk start to transkode from gsm to ulaw.

When i unload module codec_gsm and codec_ulaw , my asterisk box sad that there is no path to translate from GSM to ULAW. WHY it is so ?
I put your attention on that fakt that second eyebeam - have two codec turned on on it.

the second eyebeam should list gsm and then ulaw, no? as it is, the first eyebeam negotiates gsm with asterisk (since it only accepts that one codec), and the second eyebeam negotiates ulaw, since asterisk supports both, and will agree on the first both support, hence, asterisk has to transcode. i think changing the second eyebeam to gsm then ulaw should resolve this?

that i the problem .

i mentioned that sip clients sends to server – codec order . but it only defined with my asterisk box. If i put allow=all - all codec orders will be empty.

I thought that eyebeams can Ñ„gree with each other and to talk over gsm. And as for me it`s nonsence that one client have GSM, other have ULAW and GSM. And they choose codec not by ligical way. But only with codec order .
But for example I can make eyebeam to put GSM codec before ULAW :confused:

THAT is the MOST silly thing in my problem .

I don`t understand .

Evreone is said that asterisk never tries to transcode codecs if it`s possible to send codecs un touchable.

The situation .

server 1 -> asterisk -> server 2

Server 1 - have enabld only GSM codec

server 2 - G729 and GSM

Why asterisk says that it`s not possible to translate codecs when i unload g729 codec?

It`s dammed problem i try to solve.

I think that asterisk is not try to THINK before decide - transcode or not transcode.

HELP ME to solve this problem .

I’m having trouble understanding your english. While the behavior may not make sense to you, it seems you shouldn’t be unloading a codec that you have said ‘allow=’ for. It sounds almost like you want some kind of passthrough negotiation, where asterisk figures out what the two clients each want and somehow use that. If so, it doesn’t work that way. Again, I don’t understand why if you want gsm, you don’t just change the second client to say gsm before ulaw.

you have it right, they should negotiate GSM. Something is preventing them from doing it.

try setting allow=all for both sip peers as well as in [general]. if that doesn’t help do sip debug peer (oneofthepeers) and psot the resulting output

here is my example in work .
First of all - sorry for my english.

I have username 108 with client eyebeam . In sip conf - allow=all . ONLY codec GSM is turned on.
it lives on IP 89.252.1.2

I have username p898984. In sip conf - allow=all . All codec supported.
it lives on ip 91.103.209.10

if i make a call from 108 , asterisk should compare codecs from both sides and choose GSM codec . But it chooses translation from GSM to G729. Here is sip debug.

The same thing if on the other side is eyebeam with G729 and GSM codec.

okay whats happening there is asterisk is allowing all codecs for everybody

the sip peer that places the call only supports GSM codec.

the sip peer that recieves the call only supports G.729 codec.

thus asterisk is being given no choice, there are no codecs that both sides support, so it translates.

your solution is with whatever devices you have. One of them is not allowing GSM and the other is not allowing G.729. Asterisk isn’t the problem.

No .

I have two the same EYEBEAMs and one of them configured with codec GSM and another with included codecs - GSM and G729.

You can check by your self that in any case asterisk tryes to translate, because it watch not to the list of the supported codecs – it looks at the sequence of the codecs. Given by client.

nope

call one:

Looking for 74957550055 in default (domain 85.91.96.85) 

So we have offered everything, peer only offers GSM, so this call leg MUST be GSM as the peer (caller) has offered nothing else.

second call leg is proceeding and sends progress info so we get a SDP:

m=audio 22512 RTP/AVP 18
a=rtpmap:18 G729/8000
a=ptime:20 

note second to last line the only codec offered is g.729. No others.

Now asterisk parses it and spits out the result:

Found RTP audio format 18
Peer audio RTP is at port 91.103.209.10:22512
Found description format G729
Capabilities: us - 0x1f07ff (g723|gsm|ulaw|alaw|g726|adpcm|slin|lpc10|g729|speex|ilbc|jpeg|png|h261|h263|h263p), peer - audio=0x100 (g729)/video=0x0 (nothing), combined - 0x100 (g729) 

so we (asterisk) offer everything and remote (destination leg) offers only g.729. Thus this leg MUST be g.729.

so we have two call legs. one remote party offered ONLY GSM (first leg), the other offers ONLY g.729 (second leg). Unless of course I am reading this wrong which is certainly possible.

My suggestion would be to look into why eyebeam isnt offering more codecs. However on the latest x-lite i havent been able to find any sort of codec selector so I have no idea where it might be.

So as i see it depends on client?
Maybe you can tell me clients which offer more than one codec?

It`s very necessary for me to find the explanation .

As for now - i see that any kind of servers and clients only offers the first codec .

today evening i will try to check how many codecs and in what dependencies - offers asterisk by itself

in your situation i am saying that your eyebeam is only offering g.729 on one side. You could try removing allow=all and ONLY offer GSM on both sides with disallow=all, then allow=gsm, see if it forces eyebeam to use GSM. However it seemed like eyebeam was only offering g.729 so that might make it not work at all.

You should contact counterpath or post on their forums and ask how to manually select the codecs it uses. This feature was present in the old x-lite but i haven’t seen it in the new one. If you figure it out, let me know how.

most servers and clients will offer several codecs, but the ones it offers are based on your selections. So you might be able to choose GSM iLBC ulaw or g.729, and you can enable or disable each one individually.

good luck!

I understand everything . but now we at start of the problem .

I can say , that if i do allow=all
And enable on one side for example GSM codec and from another side codec priority like g729 and GSM. My asterisk don`t try to find codecs – it only become to translate codecs.

no what i am saying is that if you do allow=gsm ONLY (never allow=g729) then asterisk will only offer gsm as a codec option. The client will take it or leave it, and if the client is configured to reject GSM as a codec it will leave it and the call will not go through.

I think that you should contact eyebeam support or post on their forums and ask them how to make sure that GSM codec is enabled…
