Playback & do something else while audio is playing

Hi

I am trying to have a sort of asynchronous playback - I’d like to answer a channel, play an audio file, then start requesting data via curl to a third party app, while the music is playing, and when I get the response back, stop the music and continue processing

playback, background, musiconhold all “stop” the dialplan while audio is not finished or interrupted… How could I achieve this ?

thanks for the help

Just a hint.
After answer, I would dial into local context with option G.
G - If the call is answered, transfer the calling party to the specified priority and the called party to the specified priority plus one.
context
exten
priority

thanks, that is indeed a good idea - I was expecting a standard function to be able to do this !

AGI is the solution for this

It is of course better to create a symbolic link instead of copying the echo application as I proposed in my previous post :smile:

1)create symbolic link : ln -s /bin/echo /usr/share/asterisk/agi-bin/echo
2) start music on hold in dialplan : exten => s,n,agi(echo, SET MUSIC ON)
3) stop music on hold in dialplan : exten => s,n,agi(echo, SET MUSIC OFF)

good luck !
