I have a new install of Asterisk 1.4 running on CentOS 6. I am completely new to *, and have so far been able to get a few things working. One thing that is killing me though is the choppy noise on MOH and when using festival. Here are some relavent excerpts from my configs:
Default has regular mp3 files, and wav has mp3’s converted to wav files. Both sound almost exactly alike.
exten => 2001,1,Festival('Please record your message')
exten => 2001,2,Record(mymessage:gsm)
exten => 2001,3,Festival('You said')
exten => 2001,4,Playback(mymessage)
exten => 2001,5,Festival('Press 1 to continue or 2 to change your mind')
When this extension is dialed, you can barely make out the dialog. When it does play back the test message though, it is clear. What am I missing here? Any help is appreciated, thank you.
Oh and some more relevant information: I do have this running on a VM. I do not see any performance issues for the CPU or memory load. And I’m doing all my testing on a gigabit LAN.
