Asterisk sound file format error
Posted on 2009-07-05
My primary Asterisk server is currently running on Ubuntu, in a 64 bit environment.
I am currently testing Asterisk on a second box, which is loaded with Centos, in a 32 bit environment.
I copied over all of my voice mail files, i.e. unavailable message greetings and the actual voice mail messages themselves, over to the Centos box, so the environment would be duplicated.
For some reason when Asterisk tries to play these files, I get an error in the CLI, and then a busy signal, as it is unable to play the WAV file. Here is the message in the CLI
[Jul 5 13:56:48] WARNING: format_wav.c:140 check_header: Not a wav file 49
[Jul 5 13:56:48] WARNING: file.c:379 fn_wrapper: Unable to open format wav
- Now if I record new messages on the Centos box, it has no problem playing back those native recorded WAV files.
- Both boxes are running asterisk 18.104.22.168 ..
- My end goal is to be running Centos 64 bit on the primary server, and Centos 32 bit on the other box, and be able to back up the voicemail files etc, from the primary to the secondary server, and have everything be functional on the secondary as it is on the primary. So far everything else about Asterisk seems to run fine with the settings from the primary, the only problem being these voicemail WAV files.
Any ideas why this is happening?
