How do I install a g729 official Digium licence?Edit

Warning: the licence is and will be linked to the server network card where asterisk is installed. If we change server, you can't use the previously installed one, and we'll have to buy a new one

First, we buy a licence.

We get an email with the licence key and some links to complete the installation process.

First, we download the codec (in this case Linux x64 version)

cd /usr/src


tar -xf codec_g729a_v34_nocona.tar.gz

cd codec_g729a_v34_nocona

cp /usr/lib/asterisk/modules/

cd ..


chmod +x register
