I had skype working before I changed from ubunto to Ubunto Studio, when it disappeared!
I've reinstalled Skype twice from different sources. Both times,when I make a test call I get "problem with audio playback".

have you tried manually selecting in/out sound device in the skype options>>sound devices?

Go to options -> sound devices and change everything to Pulse.

Note that this doesn't work for everyone, because Skype has pretty poor Pulseaudio support at the moment.

You'll have to fiddle around until you find the right combination in your audio in and out settings found within Skype itself.

Thank you. The Pulse suggestion worked.
