Does anyone have a good solution to stream hold music to the Asterisk/FreePBX server? I currently have setup WinAMP using ShoutCast but it appears to a very touch and go stream, being that it seems to periodically drop the connection.

Asterisk 1.6, FreePBX 2.8, WinAMP v5.6

  • In musiconhold.conf
    [default]
    mode=custom
    directory=/var/lib/asterisk/mohmp3-empty
    application=/etc/asterisk/bin/mohstream.sh

    /etc/asterisk/bin/mohstream.sh

  • One minor comment:

    If you don’t use ‘mode=files’, there’s no need to set ‘directory’.
