MeetmeAutoMute is a utility for Asterisk that can automatically mute participants in a Meetme conference.

This can be handy for when you are using the conference to broadcast some audio (like during a speech or presentation, and do not want to have people interfere with the speaker.

It is written in Python and uses the AMI through the "pyst" library (

Everything is configurable through a config file, and can be controled at run time through the use of "signals".

I have also included an "init.d" style bash script that can be used for starting, stopping and reloaded the config file.

The script will start the app as a background daemon.

I have licensed my code under the GNU GPL v2.
