android email will not play wav49 file attachments. See:

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1712

Now I’m getting a lot of pressure to change the format used in voicemail.

Here’s what I’ve got:

format = wav49|gsm

I’d like to change it to format = gsm|wav49, but the
voicemail.conf.sample says “Don’t Change the Format Unless You REALLY
Know What You’re Doing”!

Well, I don’t. Would this change screw things up? It’s still the same
formats, just a different order.

  • Wav49 is GSM wrapped in a MS header.

    You should be able reverse the order of the two items without harm.

    If you remove formats, then Asterisk won’t find the existing messages or greetings in the format you removed.

  • There is a script on http://www.generationd.com designed for Asterisk. It will convert the Wav49 to mp3, add call info into MP3 tags, add a company logo, etc. and then email the message.

    It’s a one line change to add to asterisk – very handy. (We use it for Android phones, nice to see call info in the tags as it plays!)

  • Client app? I use the stock media player on android, and touchdown email client (not sure if that’s what you’re looking for), but other staff use different apps.
