i want use music on hold on my system, but the mp3-player use too much cpu-time
and i must delete the mp3-files to disable the player.

the player for music on holt should only loaded, if it is needed, also music on hold is play. asterisk can call it with a random playlist.

why start asterisk three tasks with the mp3-play if no music on hold is needed or played to a connect phone.

please start the player only if music on hold is played and let it off all other time.

it is not needed, too block cpu-time unnecessarily with programs, which are not needed at this time.

you use this cpu-time better for asterisk to get a better performance.

Moved from SIP general to Asterisk Musiconhold.  Please provide configuration details.  Is this only an issue with mpg123?

This is obviously known and not a bug.  Please do not post feature requests to the Asterisk bug tracker.

If you want a less processor intensive method for music on hold, don't use mpg123.  There are other options available to you such as a stream, the rawplayer that is in CVS HEAD (which could also be used in 1.0), or also the native moh that is also in CVS HEAD.
