How to use webcam microphone as default?
In order to use my usb webcam microphone with skype I have to go to sound settings and change the input source manually every time I plug it in. I intuitively tried rearranging the default sound card microphone and the webcam one via drag and drop in the hope of being able to define a priority, but with no luck.
It's really annoying that instead of just plugging in the webcam and it sets itself automatically as sound input, I have to go through the settings every time. Is there any way to make my webcam microphone the default sound input? I can't do it within skype because skype just shows "pulse audio driver" whether I use the built-in mic or the webcam one, it basically just uses whatever the ubuntu system is currently using.
I searched a bit online and all I could find was a post from 2011 (http://askubuntu.com/questions/31206...cam-microphone) (so I don't know if it's outdated) and honestly it's really a bit complicated and a big effort for a thing that should be relatively easy for the end user to change.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, it should be easier, but it's not...
Anyway, try the udev solution. You only have to do it once : http://askubuntu.com/a/115575
If you need help, get the output of pacmd and lsusbr:
***plug in webcam***
