in my lab I have a couple of plain asterisk 13.3.2 setups, it has been patched to include transcoding for the opus format, this is working fine.
My question is if it is possible to add a custom format for the Playback() application, such as a .opus file, I was hoping that would reduce cpu load as no transcoding would be needed for the playback?
Or perhaps there are other ways to do such playbacks - for an ivr or announcements use basically.
I also noticed that it doesnt seem like asterisk always picks the native format, I havent dug into this, but in a dir I have “test.ulaw test.gsm and test.wav” and for some reason, with a ulaw client/channel it chose the gsm file
any hints and clues and helpful tricks appreciated.
