I believe full retail version of x-lite (eyebeam), has the G729 codec.  The price of the codec is included in the software.

The alternative would be to buy G729 licenses on the Asterisk server, and transcode.
So basically in house calls would use one codec...  e.g. G711,...and then would be transcoded to G729 by Asterisk.  Licenses are $10 USD per channel.

If you get a softphone with the G729 codec, then Asterisk would not need to transcode, and would work in "pass-thru" mode.

It is cheaper to transcode, and use the free version of x-lite, ....but transcoding will require Asterisk to use a little more CPU time.  Depending on your volume of calls, this may be something to consider... cost vs. performance.

Tx. Transcoding isn't an option. What softphones can you recomend with a G729 license for Windows XP?
