System recordings not playing back

I have been trying to set up announcements using system recordings.

I recorded a message from the system recordings page and it saved fine to custom/test.wav
I set up a custom destination of 6666 that plays an announcement using the test.wav file. However it will not play. The CLI shows the following:

I have googled this to death and cannot find any fix for it at all that works.

I may be missing something obvious and I’m hoping someone has seen this before!

Thanks,

How did you record it?
Remember you need to record it MONO,PCM Encoded, 16 Bits, at 8000Hz (I use Audacity for that)
If you miss one of the above, you’ll never hear anything.

Kind regards

I recorded using the the *77 shortcut.

sorted. i needed to symlink /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/custom to /usr/share/asterisk/sounds/custom

that sorted it and recorded audio is playing back automatically
