This may be the wrong place to ask this and if it is I’m sorry. I’m completely new to VOIP/SIP/Asterix/FreePBX and all it entails, but I’m hoping someone can help me.
I work with a small UK charity and we need to arrange something where our service users can dial a number and listen to a message during the current pandemic/isolation.
All I need is something that will answer a call, play an MP3 (ideally from another server) and then hang up the call automatically.
A quick Google shows that Asterisk supports the command
MP3Player(http://link.to/stream.m3u) and this would be ideal.
What I need to know is, is it possible to configure this using FreePBX? And how?
My Googling has led me to believe that the way to do it is to pass all incoming calls to a specific virtual extension and then to create a “dial plan” for that extension which answers the call, runs
MP3Player() and then hangs up. However I am none-the-wiser as to how to do this using the FreePBX front end.
Could anyone help?
