How to play an mp3 files


Can anyone tell me how to play an mp3 files in asterisk

there are couple of solutions to play mp3 files. Look for MP3Player dialplan application, which require external program mpg123 to play mp3 files.

Other way is to install asterisk-addons package to play mp3 files natively in asterisk.

To my humble opinion, cmd Playback(somefile) should play ‘somefile.mp3’ since you have loaded…
