Software :: Replacing Skype By SIP Client But No Audio In Ekiga

Apr 15, 2010

Skype works fine on openSUSE 11.2, but I'd like to use another application with a more open protocol (SIP) for PC-to-PC calls. Ekiga seems to be what I'm looking for, but I have a problem with audio. When I launch the echo test call, video is displayed correctly (I see myself), but I can't hear anything (I guess I am supposed to hear a ring, and maybe some instructions?...). Nothing seems to be recorded either. I tried all the different audio settings in Preferences/Audio - no luck.

I searched for some information on the web but couldn't really find anything. The troubleshooting test (arecord -D plughw:0,0 -c 1 -r 8000 -f S16_LE - | aplay -D plughw:0,0 -c 1 -r 8000 -f S16_LE -) from [URL] works fine. So what to look for? Does anyone here use ekiga successfully? How did you configure your audio? Or would you recommend another SIP client?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Not Working In Skype?

Jan 11, 2011

I had difficulty getting my internal microphone -

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC272 Analog [ALC272 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I was able to get it to work in the Sound Recorder Application and in the System Testing function, but when I do the Skype Test Call, or call someone with Skype, while I can hear the other person perfectly well, my microphone does not appear to work at all, so it is a strictly one way conversation.

I've made sure with the ALSA Mixer that everything is turned on, and all my sound settings are fine, but microphone won't work in Skype.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Add 264 Codec To Ekiga?

Jan 17, 2010

I'm trying, reeeeally trying to use Ekiga. But the video quality is horrible. So I started messing with the settings, lo-and-behold I find info about h.264 and how fantastic it is. Well, I say to myself, let's try that on for size.

What? No h.264 option in Ekiga. That's weird, especially considering they have supported it since 3.0 and I'm using the version in the Karmic repos, 3.2.5. Not free, ok, I'll just install it then, right?

x264 package didn't do it. A little ffmpeg install as well. libavcodec52, which uninstalled a buttload of other stuff also. Even dl'd and installed libopal3.6.4-plugins-non-free. All to no option for the h.264 codec option in Ekiga.

Oddly enough, the libopal non free plugins DID add the iLBC audio codec into Ekiga as on option. Why not h.264? What am I missing? Also, why is this SO difficult? There is not any decent documentation that I can find out there that goes over this. Google has failed me.

All I have in the video codecs is theora and h261.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Audio Suddenly Not Working?

May 7, 2011

I have been using Skype 2.2 beta on Ubuntu 11.04 using a Logitech 260 camera/microphone -- all with excellent results -- for the past couple of weeks.Today, for some reason unknown to me, my Skype contacts began telling me that my audio was nearly unintelligible, though I had no problem hearing them. I initially thought the problem was at their end; but then I did a test call and listened to the play-back of my own voice recording, and it was awful. It's sounds like I'm speaking under water with a buzzing sound in the background, and the words are barely audible.I wish somebody could tell me what's going on. I do not recall changing anything on my sound system. I wonder whether the problem is with Skype or Ubuntu 11.04 or my own machine (which is brand new

Ubuntu Multimedia :: [skype] UVC Camera Ok In Test, Not Working In Calls?

Jan 14, 2010

I've a issue on Skype 2.1 beta, my Ubuntu version is Karmic Koala. Well, my camera works perfectly in guvcview and in skype test (I already modified config.xml in my user dir to have 640x480, my cam is Ricoh r5870). OK, as soon as I start my video or I get itautomatically started it goes 320x240 and very bad. I turn it off during the call and I restart it: it works perfectly. Could I solve this issue by telling skype to open the video "just like if it were the second time" ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Configure Ekiga (H232 Account)

Jan 2, 2010

I am not getting very good sound from skype. I wondered if Ekiga was better than skype so I have:

Installed it.
Obtained a sip address.
adjusted the ports on my router as below
set up the user by way of the configuration assistant.

And still I see nothing and hear nil. I am not getting an error message. When I run the test address it immediately reports it is done. I set up the H232 account.

Each of the following port ranges were translated to the same ranges:
TCP 1720-1720
UDP 5000-5100
TCP 30000-30000

What have I left out of the configuration?

Ubuntu :: Get Skype Working On 10.04 X64?

Aug 23, 2010

I have been trying to get skype working on 10.04 x64. I succeeded last night by using a pulseaudio config file to stop autospawning, but this kills volume management on many other apps as well. I just wrote a quick skype startup script to kill pulseaudio when skype is opened, and replace it when skype is closed, but I would rather have an autospawning exception for skype only. Is there a way to tell pulse audio not to autospawn for skype related processes only?

Ubuntu :: Skype/VLC Not Working In 8.10 Intrepid?

Feb 27, 2010

I'm having trouble with some qt-based apps that did work previously but now do not. So far I've seen this with Skype, VLC and umbrello. Applications appear to execute but GUI never seems to initialise. CPU remains around 90%. I'm using an eeepc 1000H running ubuntu intrepid 8.10 with adam's kernel 2.6.27-8-eeepc. Any ideas on how I can debug this? As I mentioned these applications worked fine in the past, I'm guessing an update broke them.

Ubuntu :: Skype / Pulseaudio Mic Not Working

Oct 11, 2010

I am using 8.04, Pulseaudio, Microsoft Lifechat USB headset and Skype on a Compaq 210. Pulse works fine for everything else. One day, it just stopped working for no apparent reason (only on the Skype mic) so I uninstalled and went back to ALSA (for a few reasons) but couldn't get that working either so now back to square one. When I boot Skype, all goes well, can place a test call, no errors. But on playback of the message it's pure fuzz, basically white noise, no sign of my voice. I've twiddled with just about every volume control and toggle I can find and then some, but nothing. Another interesting thing; Pulse is now NOT working unless I input 'pulseaudio -D' in a terminal after boot. Then it seems to be okay, 'cept the mic.

Strange as the mic works perfectly and crystal clear in Sound Recorder. No probs. So:

1/ How do I replace the recorded white noise in a Skype test call with my own mellifluous tones and;

2/ Where do I put 'pulseaudio -D' (what file) so it will be read and turn pulse on at boot?

Using Skype (I know there is a newer version, .87 I think, but that was even more problematic). Another strange thing; the newer version (.87?) worked flawlessly for months before the mic just one day died (ONLY in Skype). As explained on my last thread; wife's uni/entertainment machine and me being the house computer dude, one of the reasons we use Linux is so I am not fixing Windows problems constantly. I only go near this machine when something goes pear-shaped so that is rarely. My wife doesn't tweak with her computer AT ALL.

Sound issues on this machine have been pretty much constant and I am really sick of it. I have two desktops running ALSA and Skype flawlessly with any USB headset AND they can ring incoming calls through the external speakers and you can take the call through the headset, something that is seemingly impossible for some reason in Pulse. Despite its bells and whistles, this is a serious oversight by Pulse developers in my opinion. (Unless I'm missing something and I've have searched for hours trying to fix THAT little mystery).

Ubuntu :: Webcam Is Not Working On Skype And Cheese?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I can't seem to get skype to work. See, the person I'm chatting with can receive video and audio, I can receive audio, but I cannot see them, even when they engage their webcam.

My cheese can take pictures from my webcam, but I can't see the screen of the webcam before I take the picture, it's only black, and when I click on the take the picture, it'll take it, and display it correctly, but the screen is black. Now, I just dled camorama, but it's saying "Could not connect to video device C/dev/video0). please check connection." I don't know what this means.

My lsusb says:

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub[code]....
The Ricoh Webcam is a built in cam, but it doesn't work either. I have an external cam that used to work, but the cam works, it's just the display that seems effed up.

Ubuntu :: USB Mic Stopped Working At Random In Skype ONLY?

Oct 1, 2010

Here's a weird one and hoping there will be a fix. It took an age to get Skype working with Pulseaudio and a USB headset but I got there. Still can't get it to ring through the speakers but use the headset for a call, which you can with ALSA, but there you go. I sometimes wonder if Pulse as default was a step forward or back. Anyway, current prob. All working fine for about four months. The machine is regularly unplugged and moved no drama.I take it out one day, come home, plug in, make a test call, get no error messages about playback or input device, I can hear the test call fine, but my recorded message playback is dead air. Nothing. Silence.

Hmm. I check absolutely everything obvious then open 'Pulseaudio Volume (recording)' find the mic is working fine (I could also hear it through the headset but this told me the audio path for the mic was through Pulseaudio for sure). So I make another test call with the volume window up and there is a level while I am recording my Skype test call message, but on playback there is again silence!I'm bamboozled for the moment. This seems to have happened at random. Used Sound Recorder to record with the mic and no problem. Working fine.Just Skype seems to be not hearing the mic at all, even though Sound Devices is set to Pulseaudio (you have no choice with Pulse).

Ubuntu :: Skype (sound) Is Not Working Anymore

Nov 21, 2010

You really have to love this fantastic Ubuntu system which destroys your setup and programmes with an update.

It seems as though one of the updates made a mess of Skype this time. well done.

Ok so here is what's happening.

First i have to say that to get my sound card working i needed to upgrade ALSA. Everyhting was running fine until....NOW.

I haven't used Skype in a while but now i thought lets use it a bit. I start up Skype there is sound. but then suddenly sound is gone. video is just fine. sound is gone completelly from Skype. mic doesn't work and neither do spekers, eventhough upon launch everything works. i can't even do a test call. in fact i could do it once but the sound was messy.

also the skype seems to have crashed as i can't exit it at all. it's just keeps running as process.

anyone had something similar? any solutions? i would post this on Skype forums, but since Skype worked before and now it doesn't anymore i believe it is Ubuntu issue.

I am running Ubutnu 10.04.
