Music on Hold

The PBX allows you to create multiple play lists that can be populated with music files. Once a playlist is configured, you can define for this to be the System Default Hold music, or specify to use this playlist under individual Extensions, Groups, or Menus.

Set Streaming Source

When a playlist is set to Streaming, you need to make sure it has a source. That source can be something local to the network (like the Barix Instreamer), or a streaming source on the internet. It is advised to try playing your online streaming source in WinAmp to ensure it works with a 3rd party player before adding it to the PBX as a source. Some stream links are in a secure wrapper that only allows them to play through the source player, and it can cause issues with the PBX. If this happens to you, delete the playlist and reboot the PBX from inside the GUI (PBX Setup=>Services).
