Post by vtararin » Mon Mar 07, 2016 20:21

Good day.
I have problem with microphone in skype.
I have follow configuration:
Lenovo U510 with internal microphone and camera;
Sabayon amd64 16.03;
Skype 4.3.

The internal camera works properly and i properly hear voice during skype call, only microphone does not work.
Arecord commend properly records voice from internal microphone and aplay properly plays recorded voice.
Pulseaudio mixer shows skype as application which listen microphone during skype call.

Any ideas?
Thank you.

So with skype running in a call, if you switch to pulse, on the recording tab, you can select the microphone?

Does the test call work?
