Charozt

8layer’s Music On Hold (MOH) Uploader or simply Charozt is Linux-based application that can be installed in Linux desktops to convert .MP3 to .WAV specifically for Asterisk supported MOH.

Apart from its utility of converting .MP3, the real essence of Charozt is its capability to easily upload these converted music files to the Asterisk Server and use them for Asterisk’s Music On Hold feature.

The user only needs to know his/her Asterisk server details to upload not just one but multiple converted music files.

Compatibility:
32-bit (i386)
64-bit (amd64, ia64)
lpia (mobile devices)

Ubuntu Packages:
8.04 Hardy Heron
8.10 Intrepid Ibex
9.04 Jaunty Jackalope

Make sure you do the following for successful download of your Charozt package.

1. Know your Ubuntu release. You can do this in your terminal by typing:

$ cat /etc/lsb-release

This will show you something like this:

jaja@jaja-laptop:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=8.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=hardy
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 8.04.2"

2. Add the following in your /etc/apt/sources.list as root.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/joelbryan/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/joelbryan/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

Note: Change “hardy” depending on what distribution you get in 1.

3. After adding the repository address, make it as a trusted source. This means that you trust the software from the repository and ensures you that the package is intact and not altered in any way. In your terminal, type:

$ sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 1456B3E6FD691850683F24BAF8F3DB36A2144EB0

4. Afterwhich, you need to update your repository. This will allow the system to acknowledge your new repository.

$ sudo apt-get update

5. Once everything is done, you can now download and install Charozt!

$ sudo apt-get install charozt

6. Run charozt by typing, c’mon, what else?

$ charozt

7. Optional, but very informative, check charozt’s description by running

$ apt-cache show charozt
