This tutorial has been created to go over whats needed to configure the non-licensed version of the g729 codec. This codec would normally cost a license fee, but recently the patent expired, which allows the codec to be used without paying a license fee.
Adding the needed repository:
The repository below is for Centos 7 64 bits:
rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/7/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-1.noarch.rpm
Installing g729 codec:
yum install freeswitch-codec-bcg729
Please edit the following config files:
In /etc/freeswitch/vars.xml please replace mod_g729 with mod_bcg729.
Within the same config file edit the following line following line to ensure g729 is a preferred codec along with any other codec you have installed.
If the install has been done correctly you should be able to use g729 codec without an issue.
