Hi Tilghman , thanks for the help.

ControlPlayback can't be used with ExternalIVR, can it ?

We use ControlPlayback in our current dialplan, what I am wanting (in
concept) is to have a meetme/conference room where one of the parties is a caller, and the other party a file to be controlplaybacked by the caller ;)

Best I have come up with so far is to start an attendant menu, get some curl data,  if blank WaitExten() loop back to start, if not ControlPlayback the data. If I also background() some music file, will that play while the loop is running ? I suspect that it will start again from the beginning.

Using the AGI approach, you can also control the start and stop of Music on Hold.  Using this approach, I was able to mix Music on Hold and a program I wrote to check for new mail (my event in this case was an IMAP NewMail notify event) - when new mail was identified, I was able to convert it using a TTS engine and play it back for the user using ControlPlayback.  The start and stop of Music on Hold was key for me.  It was non-blocking audio playback.
