Audio Playback Problems

Postby EliD on Sun Jan 11, 2009 7:24 pm

My first post to this lovely community, to which I have learned so much from simply watching.

I am currently using a clevo notebook (sager NP 7680) and Felicia. I update often and my audio has bee without problem. Skype, though, has never worked, and is the only thing keeping me from deleting my windows partition. The only message it says is "Problems with audio playback"

tl;dr

Skype doesnt work error is "problem with audio playback"

speakers work, and I'm assuming the mic does too because i get feedback if the volume is high and i close the lid.

What else can i tell you to help fix this issue.

thanks,

noob

I found this resource with a google search of "ubuntu 8.10 skype problem with audio playback".

It might be of help, google is your friend as well and I think this is a fairly well-documented problem.

Before you do anything, under Skype Options -> Sound Devices. What do you have listed for sound in, out, and ringing?
