Asterisk VXI 1.4


Did anyone tried using AsteriskVXI 1.4?

I’m using Asterisk 1.2.14 and installed AsteriskVXI 1.4 which comes with free one port license. When i start asterisk, it gets stopped at the point where it loads the vxml app module called … and gives an error message saying “Bad Video Codec”

Can anyone help me here?


Just restart the voicebrowser and then Asterisk.
Asterisk is trying to access to VXI and this one is not launched.


Also, if you are using safe_asterisk to start Asterisk, it will run any script (.sh) that is in the /etc/asterisk/startup.d directory before it actually starts Asterisk. The VXI voice browser needs to be started before Asterisk is started so just create a simple shell script to start VXI* and place it in there.

I also created /etc/asterisk/shutdown.d directory and modified safe_asterisk to execute any script in that directory upon a normal shutdown. I then created a simple shell script to stop VXI* and placed it in there.

The shell scripts are extremely basic so here is the code.

if [ -x /etc/init.d/openvxi ]; then
/etc/init.d/openvxi start

if [ -x /etc/init.d/openvxi ]; then
/etc/init.d/openvxi stop

Hope this helps,

I too have had issues with VSIAsterisk, though v2 on AsteriskNow 1.4.4. I can’t even get it to run… not quite sure, but I’ll try the notes here.
