G729 codec with a provider


I have a provider that only supports G729, can I make calls with this with Asterisk or do I have to install the G729 codec?


Asterisk supports G729, although you have to buy a license for it:


It’s not terribly expensive.

I purchased the codec, should I receive a email from them with the link to download it?

yes u will receive an email with the download link and codec key

My understanding that if you have G.729-capable SIP-phones or ATAs then you don’t need transcoding on Asterisk and don’t need a license.

I have a Intel Celeron D 2.4 or 2.6 I have many download choices on this link ftp://ftp.digium.com/pub/asterisk/g729/asterisk-1.4/32-bit witch one do I download?
