I was using the Playback application to play an MP3 file after compiling
and installing asterisk 188.8.131.52 with format_mp3 and it seems to me that
asterisk is transcoding the file to an slin on the fly rather than
playing the mp3 itself. Is this what it does?
Also, does this mean I might as well change the format of MP3s to WAV
seeing as I’m used to doing that anyway?
