Description:This patch gives you the ability to "cloak" conferences. That is, if a conference is cloaked and someone attempts to join they will automatically be sent to a vacant conference room (dynamically created). They will believe that nobody is in the conference they originally selected. As well, now when you do a meetme list you may see the status of a conference - whether it is locked, or cloaked. Disclaimer is on file with Digium.

You are not yet able to change cloaking status via the meetme phone administration. The prompts for this have not yet been recorded but when this is done, this feature will be added in an updated patch. Enjoy!

meetme_cloaking2.diff.txt is the latest version and adds a c flag to meetme, this allows you to join a conference regardless of cloaking status.

Can't this be done with extension logic?

Oh no he didn't! :P  By that logic apps like app_privacy should be pulled out and done in extension logic right?

It wouldn't work quite the same if it was in extension logic, and you wouldn't get all the features. As well should meetme locking be done in extension logic too?

Markster: If the meetme admin menu was run from an extension instead of being hard coded inside meetme then this could be done in an extension. That would open up a lot of other nice possibilities as well.

At the moment I don't think the ability to control the visibility can be created via extension logic.

Bkw: app_privacy is a nice example of how to write a small application. However, that feature could (should?) have been implemented in the dialplan. It does have an educational value though. :)

petersv you are correct its a very nice app example ;)

Is there any further interest in having this feature for Meetme in CVS? If not I will admit defeat and abandon it.

Closed per conversation with poster (on a meetme no less).
