I'm attempting to be able to record a call and be able to Pause and UnPause the Monitor command. I'm able to successfully record the call on a feature command of *9, but after starting the recording I'm no longer able to control it






Extensions.conf
DYNAMIC_FEATURES=>automon#apps#precord#unprecord
 
[macro-apprecord]
exten => s,1,GotoIf($["${XAD}" = "0" | "${XAD}" = ""]?startrec:stoprec)
exten => s,n(startrec),Playback(startmonitor)
exten => s,n,Set(XAD=1)
exten => s,n,Set(FILENAME=${TIMESTAMP}-OUT${CALLERID(number)}-^-${UNIQUEID})
exten => s,n,Set(MONITOR_EXEC_ARGS=&& nice -n 19 lame -b 96 -t -F -m m --bitwidth 16 --quiet "/var/spool/asterisk/monitor/${FILENAME}.wav" /var/spool/asterisk/monitor/${FILENAME}.mp3" && rm -f "/var/spool/asterisk/monitor/${FILENAME}.wav" && mutt -s "Test Email" foo@foo.net -a  "/var/spool/asterisk/monitor/${FILENAME}.mp3")
exten => s,n,Monitor(wav,${FILENAME},m)
exten => s,n,MacroExit
exten => s,n(stoprec),StopMonitor
exten => s,n,Set(XAD=0)
exten => s,n,Playback(stopmonitor)
exten => s,n,MacroExit
 
# I also add this code here, but I think it only works in 1.4 is there a way to make it work on 1.2?
 
 
[macro-pauserecord]
exten => s,1,PauseMonitor()
exten => s,n,MacroExit
 
[macro-resumerecord]
exten => s,1,UnpauseMonitor()
exten => s,n,MacroExit
 
 
 
features.conf
 
[applicationmap]
apps => *9,caller,Macro,apprecord
precord => *8,caller,Macro,pauserecord
unprecord => *7,caller,Macro,resumerecord

I believe the PauseMonitor() command was introduced in Asterisk 1.4 so your version would not have it.

The only thing you can do is stop the monitoring and then start it again later. You will have to track the state of the recording and all the files which have been created and then run a script to join them all together again afterwards.
