Skype – No sound/audio when making a test call

September 11, 2014 Leave a comment

Problem:

So finally managed to install skype 4.3 on 64bit Debian Testing. Next hurdle was that I could not make a skype call as the other party could not hear me. Selecting Options->Sound Devices->Make a Test Call would result in nothing getting recorded.

Solution:
Install pulseaudio and mate-volume-controller.

So most noticible effect was that now every time skype starts up you get all the moans and groans, but still “Make a Test Call” does not play back my voice.

In skype go to Sound Devices

Click on “Open PulseAudio Volume Control”

Make sure that the internal microphone is not muted. Once I unmuted mine. I redid the skype test call and it played back my voice.
