View Full Version : [ubuntu] Easy Skype Fix?

August 29th, 2008, 03:38 AM
Hello all,

This will probably be an easy fix that I am just failing to see.

I was webcam chatting using skype. Both the outputted video from my webcam and the imputed video from my friend's webcam worked. My sound capture worked. However, I could not get skype to play her sound capture from her webcam. Her lips would be moving, but no sound.

I then used my friends laptop that had skype for windows, and I was able to hear her. So, it's not a problem on her end.

I went into the options menu and navigated to the Sound Devices options.

Right now, i have all three options: Sound in, sound out, and ringing set to pulse. Now, the sound in obviously worked with pulse because she could hear me. But the ringing and the sound out were not working because I couldn't hear her nor the ring when she called.

What should I set these to in order for them to work?

I have played around with them a bit, but can't seem to find the right thing.
