I am using Skype 188.8.131.52 and the test audio & test audio call work fine. Once i actually set up an audio call with someone the other party cannot hear anything. I can hear him though. Once i go into my 'Volume control' - 'Recording' tab ; i see that microphone is muted. I tried un-muting it a couple of times and then restarting Skype and restarting my call ; but the mic is muted again. Every time i unmute it - it gets muted after i start the call and my friend cannot hear me. I am using a GNOME desktop. I also have pulse installed which comes default with OpenSuse 11.1.
What's the way to be heard on Skype?
