Enable video


I want to know how to enable video conversation in fresh installed asterisk server using AsteriskNOW. In which file and what i must change for supporting video conversations. How configurate asterisk for saving audio/video conversations in filesystem?

Best regards.


Select a technology for your devices that supports video, e.g. SIP.

Make sure that you have video codecs enable in the technology driver configuation file, e.g sip.conf. I think think this may be the default, but most people start by clearing the list and then only enabling those they want.

There is basically nothing special, provided the video codec is the same for both parties (Asterisk cannot transcode) and known to Asterisk (asterisk needs to do basic parsing, but doesn’t need to decode the video stream.
