g729 for Asterisk 1.4.1 on FreeBSD


I’m running Asterisk 1.4.1 on FreeBSD 6.2, so far with good results.

One of my SIP peers has very limited bandwidth, so we wanted to experiment with using g729, but so far I’ve been unable to find a g729 build for current versions of Asterisk and FreeBSD.

Does such an animal exist and I’m looking in the wrong places, or…?



It is a propriatary protocol. You can purchase it at Digium.com

I know it’s proprietary, but I don’t see a build for Asterisk 1.4.1 on FreeBSD.

Do you have a specific URL for the above?



i don’t see a build for your platform from Digium … maybe try emailing support@digium.com, see if they can build you a binary ??

Alternatively you could get them to use the G.722 Codec, i find it a great replacement for G.729 always does the trick, and it is free too :smiley:
