Codec log detail?

Is it possible to tell what codec a call used? CDR or CEL doesn’t appear to show the codec and when running asterisk -vvvvvr i’m not seeing it show up in the running detail either.

You can see it from the asterisk cli.

the only way i’ve been able to see it is live during the actual call with “sip show channels” but i can’t figure out how to do it after the fact.

is there another command i should be using.

Not really, but if you do a bit of “customization” on the calls then a judicious DumpChan() will reveal the codec(s) used on the channel, you can then add to your cdr a custom field that gets seeded.
