    Fixed the audio problem by going on the skype website and troubleshooting. The problem was in my system preferences. The sound setting in my hardware had for some reason set itself to the 'left' position. Once reset to the 'middle' position everything seemed fine.

Hi, i have just installed my Skype and have bought a Logitech Webcam, have done the Skype check etc but I cannot get audio when I am on a video call? We can see each other and I can hear the othe rperson...


Hi Bronwyn,

What you need to do is to open Skype and go into the Preferences or Options and select Audio. There is a drop down menu to select what audio (microphone) you want to use. There should be a selection there for the Logitech webcam. (Most webcams have a mic in them.)

The other option would be to get an external microphone and connect it to the proper connector on the front or back of your computer and select it from the menu.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My friends can see &HEAR me BUT I CANNOT hear them. what can i do?


If you are sure that your mic is working properly, then take a look at this illustrated picture:
207e95b.jpg

On the skype menu, click "Call" and select "Audio Settings", this window will open up, the first slider (option) is for Microphone.. when you speak on the Mic, the indicator will show the status. Simply move the first slider to the extreme right and save the settings.
If this doesn't seem to work, then you need to check your computer sound settings. Open the sound settings and make sure that Microphone is selected as the default recording device, and is not muted.

Since you didn't mention the details about your computer, I can't make this specific. If you need further help, let me know with more details like the Operating System installed on your computer, the sound card...etc...


Good luck..

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have installed skype 4 on vista and I have issue


See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have there 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.

A. 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.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

  1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
  2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
  3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
  4. Then click on Audio Video.
  5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone Speaker
Camera The audio and camera should function now.

Additional info to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings: In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Notes:
  • The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

I can't log into skype. I keep getting Disk I/O error message.


You need to delete the folder that holds your account information for Skype.
I can be found in: C:\Documents and Settings\<winuser>\Application Data\Skype\<skypename> for XP or, C:\Users\<winuser>\AppData\Roaming\Skype\<skypename> for Vista

I just deleted any user account folder I saw, reopened, logged in...worked fine.
