I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) with Skype, and I can't get the microphone to work. I can hear them, but they can't hear me. I tried the same headset with my Windows system, and it works fine, so the headset is OK.
I looked at "Sound Preferences", and noticed that when I click on the "Input" tab, the area where you can adjust the volume is set at the minimum, and grayed out, so I can't adjust it.
I have a motherboard p5bvm-se with 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller. The sound in earphones playing. Sound from the microphone is recorded and reproduced in KRecord => microphone is working. ssv:~ # uname -a Linux sslesarev 22.214.171.124-0.1-default #1 SMP 2010-01-27 08:20:11 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I installed skype skype-126.96.36.199-3.1-x86-64 from build.opensuse.org/home:matteotomasoni or skype-188.8.131.52-suse.i586.rpm from [URL]... Microphone does not work in skype!
My audio and video used to work great in skype. Two days ago connected my laptop and TV, in order to use the TV as a second monitor, to watch a football match (I only have IPTV). Only thing I had to do was to go to System -> Preferences -> Sound and switch (in the hardware tab) my Internal Audio Hardware from Analog Stereo Duplex to Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output + Analog Stereo Input.
So after the match I switched it back to Analog Stereo Duplex and proceeded to skype with my girlfriend. Problem was, the mic stopped working. It works just fine in 'Input' tab of my sound preferences, as well as in sound recorder. She, in skype, heard nothing but static. Test call doesn't work either. Now I've done all the usual stuff, Skype isn't allowed to automatically adjust mixer levels and my mic is already boosted. I've reinstalled skype and everything. I'm running out of ideas.
I just installed Skype and when I do a test call I can't hear myself. For some reason the microphone doesn't work, but I can hear sounds in the speakers. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 can someone help me with this issue?
I'm trying to record a video with sound through FFmpeg, and while it records the system sounds just fine, it doesn't record the microphone (in fact, it crashes on doing so!). The strange thing is that if I use arecord, it works just perfectly, but through ffmpeg it crashes.This is the command that I use to launch FFmpeg:
Just made a clean installation of the new Ubuntu 10.04 LTS this morning. So far, so good. Things are working smooth but there is one thing that bothers me - Skype (latest version). Here's a list of what's wrongSo this isn't just a Skype issue.
1) I made some tests and the webcams works, both other people and me are not able to see my image (any library for video decoding missing?). The cam works fine with cheese.2) Integrated microphone doesn't work, whereas an external one works. The integrated microphone works with "sound recorder" application.My is a Packard Bell netbookCPU Atom N270 @1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDO.S. Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10
It's been almost two months since this problem started. I'm running 9.10, Karmic Koala, with all updates. I was hoping one of the updates would just fix this problem.
The microphone does not appear to work at all. It seems to exist because I have a choice for "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" under "sound preferences," but I don't know how else to check whether this is true. Sound Recorder does not record anything and Skype does not capture any sound from me.
how to run commands in the terminal and I consider myself an intermediate user, I just don't know anything about sound.
I can hear myself speak in the mic but Ubuntu is not recording/capturing the sound. Actions Taken: I followed all the steps listed here for the Alsa update script. I've also tried changing my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.config file with the following configurations one at a time.
My capture settings are 'on' in alsamixer as in they are in red with the words CAPTURE underneath it.
When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:
i just upgraded from Skype 184.108.40.206 to 2.1.047. Now my microphone isn't working anymore and i cannot select it in the skype options. From now on i can only select the PulseAudio server ..
So i have read some howtos for PulseAudio. They say i should starte PulseAudio Volume Control. ok.. Now i should go to the tab "Recording". This tab doesnt exist on my pc. I upgraded to the latest version of this volume control. It still doesnt exist.
I am using OpenSuse 11.0 with KDE4.3
Here are some screenshots:
PS: My mic is still working with applications, that dont use pulseaudio.
i have toshiba satellite A665 4 days ago i tried to talk with my friend through laptop playback microphone .. i could hear him but he couldn't hear me .. i tried everything but the problem still remains !
I am really struggling to get my the internal microphone on my iMac to function. I was able to get the sound working by installing ALSA Mixer and appending the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file with [options snd-hda-intel model="imac24"]. Input is not muted. That file is attached.
My gnome-volume-control recognizes an 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo' device, but it picks up no sound. Here's the chip information: Realtek ALC889A.
The mic on my laptop (lenovo g555, Ubuntu 11.04) doesn't work. No matter what application I'm using, it won't register. It worked just fine when I had windows installed. I've checked my sound preferences, and my input isn't muted, and no matter what volume I put the input at, it won't pick anything up.
I just installed Maverick on an Asus Seashell 1215T netbook with an AMD/ATI chipset. The sound output is working fine (with the exception that I have to manually set output to either speakers or headphones rather than just plugging in headphones), but neither the internal microphone nor external microphones plugged in through the mic jack work. I do have the sound device set to the internal sound (rather than HDMI) and the volume level set appropriately. Apparently neither microphone is being recognized. Any ideas on what could be wrong?Here is the relevant section from lspci -v:
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 841c Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 I am using 10.10 I am using headphone/microphone headset this did work for me with 10.04 never a problem, I have tried to use these to fix problem - audacity/sound recorder/pulse audio volume control/pulse audio device chooser/ (the more I use 10.10 the more I love it its been a learning curve I am sure this is just another one of them for me..)
Re: Microphone not working after upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick My hardware profile is Duplex. When I click on the input tab the signal measuring bar is always staying lit on the first section and does not move further. This means that the mic is not capturing sound. In 10.04.1 there was a dropdown menu in the input tab from which I could choose the default microphone and thus choose an option that works. In 10.10 there is no such thing. I kind of fixed it by adding "options snd-hda-intel model=3stack" in alsa-base.conf. Now I have the dropdown menu and my microphone works for now. The problem is that I did not have to do this in 10.04.1 ... options snd-hda-intel model=3stack sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf for mine it was mic 1 and it worked
i just installed ubuntu netbook remix 10.04.1 on an aspire one 532h netbook, and everything works great except i cant get the mic to work with skype. i know the mic is working correctly because i tried it in sound recorder and was able to record and playback my voice.all sound levels are where they should be, and everything seems to be in order. i'm using the latest beta of skype also. i installed pavucontrol but that didn't do anything.because the mic is working, i'm beginning to think it may be a problem with skype.
I have another issue, my microphone does not record at all!! When I try to record, it just makes this....dot. dot sound.I have a Gateway NV53 laptop with an internal microphone built in Does anyone know a solution to it?I've done some research and it all seems to end up in a dead...end. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and everything is up to date and working so far.
I am running Xubuntu Lucid 10.04 on a Sony Vaio. I recently dropped $100 on a Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for Mac, on the recommendation on the ubuntu wiki [URL].. that it would "work perfectly" in Skype. In Skype, it did nothing. No Audio, no video, light wouldn't even come on. Essentially a $100 dollar paperweight. I really think someone should correct this misleading information on the wiki.
I followed the kludge listed here [URL].. to get the video to work. By executing Skype with the shell script listed in the first post, I could get the video test to work, but no audio, and when I tried to call someone, when I turned on video, Skype quit suddenly. For the record, yes, I unmuted the device in the Sound Mixer in the top right corner.
Later on, I tested it with guvcview, and the cam worked perfectly in that program. It's only Skype that doesn't know what to do with it. When I execute Skype in Terminal I get the following output repeating over and over again:
Code: X Error, request 20, minor 0, error code 3 BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) X Error, request 15, minor 0, error code 3 BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) libv4l2: error setting pixformat: Input/output error libv4l2: error setting pixformat: Input/output error
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an Asus F3JC laptop with an integrated webcam and microphone. The webcam is a
Code: user@ubuntu:~$ lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05e1:0501 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd DC-1125 WebCam
and it works. If i tap on the microphone or if I blow on it, I hear noises but after I record something with gnome-sound-recorder I don't hear any sound! The same with Skype, for example.
On Xp (other hd partition) it works.
The audio device on the laptop is a
Code: user@ubuntu:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC660 Analog [ALC660 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1
If I open the "sound preferences tool" the device for sound input is "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" and even if I tune the volume of the microphone I don't see any movement in the input level bar. I've also checked alsamixer and the digital volum in the capture interface is set at the maximum.
