This worked great, however can't find any info on the internet about how to make extensions like directory services and conferences work. I'm getting a translation error:

channel.c: Unable to find a codec translation path: (slin) -> (opus)

Asterisk 13.17.1
FreePBX 13

Probably better to use 'current' to get the latest release:


Except it extracts to 'codec_opus-13.0_$ver-x86_64' and not 'codec_opus-13.0_current-x86_64'
