Thread: Setting up Skype - 11.4, Laptop HP 625

  1. #1

    Default Setting up Skype - 11.4, Laptop HP 625

    Hmmmm..... I´m feeling a bit silly here, but I cant get it to work....

    I get to the test call, but the sound is not recording, the internal Laptop mic isn´t picking up sound... I do hear the skype voice in the test call......

    I´ve looked in the sound preferences and can´t find the problem, "Sound recorder" doesn´t pick up any sound either....



    as for the vid.
    "Cheese" shows me my pic, and the light for the cam goes on, but I don´t get video on my skype.... when I close "Cheese" the light for the cam goes off....



    ...I´m going to try find myself an extern mic, to see if that helps.....

    Not sure it's relevant, but my internal mic doesn't work w/Skype either,
    though my external (headset) mic does. Cheese also works for me, though
    I've never tried sending my picture via Skype. I can see others' pictures
    when they are using Skype and talking to me. I'm on 11.3, x86_64.

    Good luck.

    In my case the internal mic picks the vibration from the fan and hard disk,
    with the voice pretty low. It is not usable. So I use instead a headset
    with mic.

    ...any Ideas on the cam, I would like to do video conferences. in Skype>options>Video devices there is a box on the right which I assume should be showing my pretty face - it seems to have put a big black bag over my head though

    ...and the mike is not working at all.... also not with "sound recorder"

    OK, it works with a headset!

    any chance of getting the internal Mike to work?





    ....and (more important) the web cam???????

    Ahh ... there are so many different webcams. I tried, but I could not guess what webcam you have. I know. I know. Its obvious to you as to EXACTLY what webcam you have and what driver you are using, but it is not to us who would like to help. How about telling us ? Tell us EXACTLY. Not some general name. We need to know EXACTLY. ie what is output of:
    Code:
    lsusb
    for starters ... we can then help you determine the driver later (if you can not tell us now).

    Note this openSUSE page: HCL:Web cameras - openSUSE
