MeetMe is one of the more remarkable applications in Asterisk. This rather simple concept has proven to be extremely expensive to implement in every other PBX, but what seems like a big deal to them is simple to Asterisk. Whether by using a dedicated server, or through the use of a service, Asterisk now delivers this functionality as a standard application.

MeetMe conferences can be created either dynamically, with the d flag in the Dial() application, or statically in the meetme.conf file. The format for creating conference rooms is as follows:

    conf => conference_number[,pin][,administrator_pin]

All conferences must be defined under the [rooms] section header.

    [rooms]
    conf => 4569
    conf => 5060,54377017
    conf => 3389,4242,1337
    conf => 333,,2424
