Mp3 Format support


I am working on some asterisk based solution. I have query regarding MP3 player format. I am using Asterisk and all addons/sounds/dahdi/ etc associated with it.

Now I am able to play a .gsm format file from the …\asterisk1.6.0.9\sounds.

Now instead if I want to play a MP3 file format tell me the process.

Also I am bit new to it so kindly tell me steps to follow.

Kindly tell let me know according to this version as on different forums process is written for previous versions.

Thanks in advance…
