Default Skype - No sound from microphone

I have an issue with Skype .

Although am able to hear sounds ( in a call i can hear the caller ) the
caller
canīt hear me . System wide i have sounds.

The version of Skype am using is :

skype-2.1.0.81-fc10.i586

Now the odd thing is that if i go to PulseAudio Volume Control under
Multimedia
under the Recording devices i can "see" the microphone and the system
can hear
me speaking since the volume increases and decreases accordingly .
Theoretically
at least that should mean that the microphone is actually being detected
and the
proper modules have been loaded. One last thing that might be relevant
is that i
donīt actually own a seperate microphone but itīs build in my Logitech
Web Camera.
The thing is that Skype actually knows about the Web Camera since if i
test it under
the video controls i can see my face . If i make the sound tests i can
hear the sound
if i make the test call i can hear the test person speaking but i canīt
hear my voice
. I have looked in the net but i donīt want to mess anything else ,
since everywhere
else the sound is working ( admitted itīs the playback sound and not the
recording thing
that am hearing ) . I would be glad to try even any other application
that speaks
the Skype protocol if that thing would make things easier without
messing up anything .

I had to add these lines in /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf in order to have
mike working


alias snd-card-2 snd-usb-audio
options snd-usb-audio index=2
options snd-card-2 index=2

What devices are selected, and what are available for the microphone, speakers
and ringing options?

Also, try to use some audio editing app like audacity to record your voice.
This just checks whether the problem lies with skype or with your system.

microphone. Some other things to verify:

- is that the only microphone you have?
- is that the one selected as a default recording device in pavucontrol?
- is it muted?
- did you try to logout/login into skype (sometimes it helps)?
- did you try to turn on/off skype's option "allow skype to automatically
adjust my mixer levels"?

There is no other app that speaks the skype protocol, because the protocol
design is considered a business secret by Skype. They have gone to
unprecedented great lengths to keep it a secret, even from reverse engineering
attempts. You may read up on the subject on, say,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skype_Protocol

HTH, :-)

Well after thinking of it , i think that here is the problem .
Skype only gives me the option of PulseAudio server , so
i have it for microphone , speakers and ringing options ..

Using audacity for example . At first i could here no sound . But then
when i went to preferences and chose the usb camera , things worked
correctly . So i guess we can assume that the system itself is aware
of the microphone on the camera .

The only microphone connected . There is a microphone input on my
built-in sound card but there is nothing connected to it.

>- is that the one selected as a default recording device in pavucontrol? -

Pavucontrol ?

Am not sure about what u mean with pavucontrol , so i would have to
improvise . The closest thing to that would be the PulseAudio Volume
Control . Am unaware on how u select the default recording device
but i have muted everything else , so i guess that will make it
pretty much the default device .


> is it muted?

Nope , itÂīs not muted . It was never so . I just muted everything else .

- did you try to logout/login into skype (sometimes it helps)?

Yes many . The problem is persistent . It survives even a machine reboot.

Yes without luck either .

i did a nice reboot which fixed up everything .
So now i have playback sound and i can hear myself through that
Test Call stuff within skype ( I canÂīt actually hear the ringing but
thatÂīs not a real issue ) . Anyway thanks for the assistance.

I had a similar problem with skype. In my case when I went into
System->Preferences->Sound (I'm using Gnome) it showed there were 2
microphone devices. When I changed the microphone device from the
current setting to the other microphone device then skype worked.

What kind of computer is this? The models I'm aware of that have an
integrated camera-microphone device are new Dell laptops. These need an
option passed to the sound device's kernel module. My Latitude E6410
needs /etc/modprobe.d/snd_hda_intel.conf containing

options snd_hda_intel model=dell-s14

Other models need other model= values. See
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=616197.

The microphone was ok after this.
