I am using a macbook and I have followed this guide to get skype calls working http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2007/12/30/microphone-support-on-the-macbook-skype-2-supported/ but everytime I try to make a call I get the message problem with audio playback and the call automaticaly quits.

I had a similar problem, though not on a Mac.

Open Skype options and go to the Sound Devices section.

Change the configurations from Default Device to other options - I can't tell you exactly which ones because I don't have the same system, but try "pulse" for both Sound Out and Ringing and whatever your hardware is on channel 0 for Sound In (mine is "hw:nvidia,0")

Play a bit with it and see if it helps. Good luck.
