i'm relatively new to Linux Mint. I'm very happy with it but nevertheless i'm having a big problem with skype.
Everytime i start a videocall my cpu usage turns up to 100% (processes: skype = 100%, pulseaudio = 12%, no other process have a high usage) and this is so loud that the receiver means i have a turbine in my room.

I solved the general fan issue already with thinkfan. The problem consists only within skype.
It would be very cool if anyone have had the problem and could help me with this issue.
