Description:If I hold a call, the music is playing too loud and distorted. It doesn't matter if i use quietmp3 or mp3 in the config. I get the same result with the included sample-hold.mp3 file.
I have the lastest Asterisk CVS version and mpg123 0.59s-mh4. This issue is also present with older Asterisk versions.

Obviously this is some sort of configuration error.  Music on hold generally sounds fine and it's something specific to your system -- and even if it wasn't you can just turn off music on hold, so I don't see any reason this should be "MAJOR".  I'll make it "MINOR" until we're able to determine the cause.

I suggest also that you start by finding a bug marshal on irc to assist you (e.g. twisted or bkw_)

install 0.59r and all will be good! :)

bkw_ and myself have found that .59s-mh4 has some issues using certain mp3 types for MOH.. try using mpg123 version .59r and see if that makes any difference.

Yes that works. Thank you and sorry for the "MAJOR" :)

mpg123 0.59s-mh4 is EVIL  lets make note of this.
