Logitech webcam with mono mic
(Up to 11.4 I had to deactivate all ‘nice’ features like ALSA and phonon just to get mic in working).
Only after additional installation of pavucontrol I was able to get some action in the mic.
Pavucontrol is finally showing mic action.
But the skype test call is giving a much to fast replay of my input (only a short high noise answer of my speak)
What to do?
For me there seems to be no working calibration method.
Up from 10.0 it seems to be more and more complicated to get a working skype action, and the cause of troubles is not skype …
The audio installation in phonon may be working automatically for simple cases - in other it is from version to version really more and more impossible to get it working.
Fools rush in etc… I have sometimes found that a (non root) user is not included in the audio group. Including a user in the audio group has cured several of my audio problems. An easy check is to try the sound when logged in as root.
