[asterisk-users] Recording just first part of call?

If you're up to using the Manager interface and your programming
language of choice, you could poll the list of active calls and stop
recording when their duration exceeds a minute. According to my docs,
res/res_monitor.c implements manager commands that could be used to halt
current recordings.

The Asterisk-Java library has a "StatusAction" and "StopMonitorAction,"
if Java is a language candidate for an application you might write.
