[Freeswitch-users] Early media without bridge

What constitutes a failure? What I mean by that is, are *all* calls that
have early media a "failed" call? Or just certain calls? What about ringing
in early media?

You could use monitor_early_media_fail and attempt to analyze the progress
tones, i.e. if you hear ringing then it's a good call but otherwise it's a
"failure." However, I'm not aware of any way to have the early media flow
to the calling party with having the bridge/originate be "successful." The
only way to know for sure is to check for a hangup cause.

Could you explain more about what you are trying to accomplish? Perhaps
there is another way of dealing with the early media conundrum.
