Asterisk video support


I don’t understand the videosupport of Asterisk. The doxygen documentation … index.html says that the playback application work with video same for record and others. I try with

exten => 1000,1,playback(path)

It works with audio file, but not with video like .avi or .mpg.
Perhaps the documentation is wrong. Is it possible?


There are no video transcoders. It is possible that you can playback material that can be directly copied to the RTP stream, but I’ve never looked into that.
