I have video but no sound using SKYPE.

Just downloaded Mac SKYPE. Do I need headphones? However, that didn't help.

Hi there,

It sounds like you're asking whether headphones are necessary to the Skype experience.

You don't absolutely *need* headphones (or a microphone or a headset that has both), but if you don't use headphones, then your Mac external microphone might pick up the sound of your conversation and you might get unpleasant levels of feedback.

If this doesn't answer your question, please write back with the following information:

1. Your Skype version (click Skype --> About Skype)
2. Your model of Mac
3. Whether you are having problems with your audio
- On Skype only?
- On other applications?
- In general?
4. Whether you have tried clicking on "Skype Test Call"
- Whether you could hear the voice giving you instructions

Thanks!

Check if your microphone and headset is plugged in correctly and try again.
Go to Settings >Sound >Input and check if your microphone is selected.

Why can my friends not hear me talking to them on Skype?


On a Mac mini made in 2010 or later, you'll need to use an external microphone to communicate as they're not built in. Plugging in a pair of Apple EarPods or headphones into the headphone jack should work just fine.

USB microphones will also do the trick (but you'll need to adjust some audio settings in Skype).

Hope this helps!

Skype microphone does not work


You need to check your audio (sometimes called Sound on some systems) settings (under control panel on Windows or Settings on Mac).

Under input (or sometimes called sound recording), make sure the headset you are using is selected.

You might also try using the headset with another program to see if it will record your voice. (Audacity is free http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. You can download it and try recording on it.)

If it still doesn't work, here is a page on Skype that has a Microsoft tool you can try - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA897/why-can-t-the-other-person-hear-me

No sound is heard with calls on Skype, I get video, and i hear sounds made by the program, but no sound from the recipient of the caller. I get sound when I video chat Mac to Mac, but not Mac to Windows,...


Ok, by the sound of it both yourself and whoever you're calling have not set up Skype quite right.
On your end, you need to:
  • Make sure you have a working microphone - try using Skype's built in 'Echo' feature (try calling 'echo123')
  • In Skype -> Preferences -> Audio, make sure that microphone is selected.
On their end, make sure they've done the same - they must have a working microphone, correctly setup with Skype in order to send you sound.
Hope that helped!

Why my laptop can't connect to my headphone?i can't chat because they can't hear me...


A question like this does not help us answer it. Please be more specific. Which laptop? what model, how old. What headphone?
If the Mac laptop is less than 5 years old then you don't need headphones to chat on it. Just open your chat application (iChat, Skype, whatever) and the mac is already to go. Just talk to the screen.

Be sure to select your headset when you do the setup.
Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud
