7 minute means 128 kbit/s times 7 * 60 seconds = 6.7 MB. That is okay. The first time the PBX might have a little hickup (jitter), but the subsequent calls to the MoH file will be smooth because the PBX keeps it in memory.

7mb MOH file can cause jitter!?

 

i didn't get a chance to test this. Is this typical to have jitter on first MOH start using such a small file?

If its running on a PC type hardware is this similar?

 

I guess I'm learning about moh...;-)

Well, the jitter might come from allocating the 7 MB; not from reading hte file (that happens in the background). Usually, the jitter should be pretty small. Especially on a PC. A embedded platform with 128 MB and no swap space might be more jitter to the level you can notice.
