Asterisk 1.4 on Debian. Installed via aptitude.
Asterisk 220.127.116.11~dfsg-3 built by pbuilder @ grnetbox on a x86_64 running Linux on 2009-01-04 19:22:45 UTC
Using a scratch-built extensions.conf.
I was writing to ask why Asterisk wouldn’t Playback() or Background() a particular GSM file, say x.gsm, which it WOULD if I copied or renamed it to, say, y.gsm.
As I was lining up my ducks to be shot down, I realized the GLARING difference.
BEFORE copying x.gsm to y.gsm, I had ALSO already created x.mp3 (sox, toolame), so I suspect that Playback(x) and Background(x) don’t know WHICH x to pick. (I email BOTH to be politically correct.)
However, Playback(x.gsm) fails, and the docs don’t mention how to provide a filetype hint.
I’d appreciate a hint though. ) Thanks! GR
