No only G711 is supported as other codecs requires licenses.

Currently this is only possible if the SpanDSP has been compiled in.

I use ubuntu for building I made some minor changes to the code in codecs even after installing spandsp library I was the codecs were not being included which i presumed was because of the #ifdef so i uncommented them and tried running them but it dint work..I went through some queries in the mailing lists and i read one of yr answers on the version of spandsp that was being used then.I got that deom sourceforge and tried to run it my surprise that also did not work.Then i finally gaveup!

Wireshark does not yet support G.722 playback, but support for it is currently being worked on. You can track the status in

As for the licensing concern raised by Anders, apparently the patents have expired so you can freely use G.722. As Jaap mentioned, Spandsp is needed for G.722 playback, but it was not fully integrated yet (see above bug).
