    Default not sure why Skype won't record sound

    Hi everyone,

    I have a very strange problem with skype. It won't take the input from
    my microphone, as in the other side doesn't hear anything. The strange
    thing is, on pavucontrol I can see my microphone recording when I talk
    into it, and I can record and play back on Audacity. It seems like my
    microphone works fine in every case except when I want to use it to talk
    on skype. I ran the skype test call, and it doesn't play back.

    I am using skype 4.0.0.8 (I just upgraded because the lower version had
    the same problem) on openSUSE 12.1, 64 bit, box #1 below. Here also is
    my audio hardware info:

    Code:
    # lspci | grep Audio
    00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
    01:05.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RS780 Azalia controller
    Also, I am using pulseaudio-1.1-1.2.x86_64.

    Any ideas?

    Haven't been able to get my plugin in mic to work, but I did get voice
    on skype to work through the mic that is attached to my a4tech camera.
    It was setting for a digital input in pulse audio. So no need to press
    any further on this one.
