Hi I'm complete Ubuntu newbie and I would really appreciate if sombody could help me with the issue.
A loud white noise appears during some of Skype conversations. It blocks completely my voice to a callee. The Skype conversation is always ok during a call untill it is disrupted and the call disconnected (usually due to a low quality of internet connection) The noise appears ALWAYS after reestablishing a conversation.
Attempts to fix it:
A temporary solution is to log-out the Ubuntu session and log-in again. Unfortunately it works only until the first disconnection. I've searched forums but didn't find a right solution. For some people worked changing Skype settings to these:
Sound In: HDA NVidia (hw:NVidia,0)
Sound Out: pulse
Unfortunately I can't change Skype sound settings for any different than "PulseAudio server (local)" for any of the three options so the solution provided is not possible for me.
Cam: Logitech Pro9000 (with a built-in microphone)
Headset: Logitech PC headset 860
Skype version: 188.8.131.52 (beta)
Thank you in advance for any ideas that you wish to share with me.
