Noise when talking on skype


When using services like Skype or VoipBuster the audio is compressed. Depending on the quality of the internet connection the audio quality will be different. If you or the person on the other side of the line has a bad internet or bad WiFi connection, the compression of the audio will be much stronger, resulting in a worse audio quality.

Another problem that occurs many times is an audio feedback. If you, or the person you're talking to uses a microphone and computer speakers, the audio coming out of the computer speakers can be captured by the microphone and be amplified again. It forms a feedback loop and creates an echo. The best thing to do is that you both use a good quality headset instead of putting the audio over computer or iPad speakers.

For your iPad, you can buy the Apple EarPods. They are affordable and contain a microphone to make Skype calls with your iPad.

You own a iPad, which is a device of high quality. If the person you're talking to has a crappy phone or bad hardware, the quality will be bad. The advice then is that that person buys a device that has a higher quality than he or she is using now.

I hope my advise will solve your problem.

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

In my laptop hp compaq cq45 with os windows xp microphone is not working plz solve my problem...


If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphonedriver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured inSkype.
To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories -Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back.If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype.
To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options -Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

How do I talk to someone on skype


1. First you must download the skype software and signup for a free account. You can do all of this at http://www.skype.com 2. You must make sure that you have a webcam, either built into your computer or a third party webcam that you bought in order to do video conferencing. If you want to do just voice, you need to make sure you have a mic. USB mics for $10 do a really good job and you can get them from any computer retail shop. 3. Once you sign up and make sure all the equipment is hooked up you need to search/find the person you want to skype with who has hopefully performed the same first 2 steps you have and sent you there username via email or some other method. 4. Once you find them through the skype built in search you should have an option to call that person, click on the icon that looks like a phone. 5. This should ring on the other persons computer and all they have to do is click on the answer button that pops up and you should be talking to each other.
Other than the signup and making sure you have a mic or webcam plugged into the computer all the steps can be done from within the skype software you downloaded above.
Hope this helps you on your way,
Good Luck.

How do I get to talk and see someone else on the webcam?


Download Skype software. Have the other person download the software as well. Once both of you have installed the software and created skype accounts you will be able to chat with video. Both parties will need high speed internet though.

I just hooked up my gigaware 1.3 megapixel camera w/mic, what else do I need to do to converse live with my daughter's Mac book pro?


You will need a software that does the communication between the two computers.

The easiest way is to install Skype on both computers and you will be able to talk and see each other. Of course you need an internet connection....

Skype is a free program ( I use it since 5 or 6 years), very easy to setup ans will recognize your camera automatically. It can be downloaded for Windows, Mac and Linux from here:

Mac version

Windows version

Linux version

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

...and enjoy talking!

I want to take a picture of someone I am talking to.How ?


On Skype you can not take pictures of different users while you are talking to them. The only way you can take pictures of yourself is if you are setting you picture that will show up on your profile.
