Hi, maybe it's an obvious 'discovery' for you, but i think i figured out
how to wait for the call to be answerred when executing an outbound,
mod_httapi-controlled call:
simply use the 'wait_for_answer' application before starting the playback.

Here's my current dial script:
<document type="text/freeswitch-httapi">
  <variables />
    <execute application="wait_for_answer" />
    <execute application="answer" />
    <pause milliseconds="1000" />
    <playback file="xyz.wav" name="user_answer" loops="2"

Of course you need to enable 'wait_for_answer' application in mod_httapi
config file.
PS but if you know the answer to  to my 2nd question please post it here
because I'm not really happy having to hard-code the origination_caller_id
in my call scripts

Best regards
