Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Recorder/skype Not Working In 10.10?

Nov 7, 2010

I love new Ubuntu 10.10. However, despite my best efforts, I cannot make sound recorder/skype work. That is, microphone would not simply record any sound. My mother board is Asus M2N68-AM.

Fedora :: Mic Doesn't Work In F12 - Skype Isn't Working Nor Is Gnome-sound-recorder

Nov 20, 2009

I basically can't get my mic to work in F12. After several releases fighting with pulseaudio, F11 finally worked almost OBO, after going to system->preferences->advanced sound configuration and setting all the input volumes to the maximum. But now there's no advanced sound configuration tool, and I just can't find anything to make it work. Skype isn't working, nor is gnome-sound-recorder. I do record some static, but nothing more. By the way, I'm on an Acer Timeline 3810T.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Finding A Sound Recorder Like The Total Recorder For Windows?

Jul 29, 2011

Is there a Sound Recorder like the Total Recorder for Windows? Someone told me to use Audacity, but Audacity recorded the mic input (e.g. the net radio sound through the speakers together with the noise of the room). Maybe I just cannot find the right settings.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Sound Recorder To Record As Mp3?

Jun 3, 2011

Just installed Natty and always used Sound Recoder to directly record as mp3 files on previous Ubuntu versions. I forgot what you have to do to get mp3 added to the option list on Sound Recorder. Can someone tell me what has to be done so Sound Recorder will again save all my recordings as mp3 files?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audacity Won't Import Sound-recorder Flac?

Mar 26, 2010

Background: I'm digitizing an old record. I used Sound Recorder to make FLACs of each side of the LP, and now I need to edit them down to individual tracks. I'm using the development version of Ubuntu 10.04.

Problem: Audacity ignores these FLAC files when I attempt to import or open them.

The FLAC files play if I hover the mouse over them in GNOME.

Audacity gladly imports FLAC files I ripped from CD last year (using Sound Juicer I think).

But when I try to do the same for my recorded FLAC files, nothing happens. I tried running audacity in a terminal window, and there is no additional output when I attempt the import. This comes out when I start it:

Code:
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
Expression 'stream->capture.pcm' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3653

Looking at the file properties, they're basically the same except the Juicer-generated file has values filled in for title, artist, album, year. They are all FLAC Stereo 44100 Hz. I thought it might be a file-size problem, so I made a 5-second test with Sound Recorder, and that also refuses to import.

So, why do only the ripped files work with Audacity?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Recorder Times And Bitrates Wrong?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Missing Input Drop-down In Gnome-sound-recorder?

Sep 7, 2010

I want to record a streaming-audio (not capture), to use an alarm sound. I opened up gnome-sound-recorder, but I don't see input drop-down menu. I tried Audacity, but it's missing the menu, too.I saw the specification sheet of my laptop, but it only says Mobile Intel´┐Ż GS45 Express Chipsets, I'm not sure if it manages sound, too, but the sheet doesn't have any information about sound chip set.dd: It seems like I can't change this to 'solved'. I cannot say it is solved, as I don't yet see the drop-down menu in gnome-sound-recorder, but with PulseAudio I can perform the task, so it can be regarded as solved?

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.

Ubuntu :: Annoying Buzzing Sound In Sound Recorder

Feb 20, 2011

When I record my voice, using the gnome-sound-recorder, I get an awful buzzing sound in the background. Altering the input volume or the output volume the recorder makes no difference: it makes the buzzing sound louder or quieter - but also makes my recorded voice louder or quieter.Can anyone offer me a solution that gets rid of the buzz whilst keeping the voice volume as it should be?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype / No Incoming Call Sound?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm having a problem with Skype. Whenever someone calls me, the incoming call popup shows up, but I can hear no sound playing. Further, if I go in Options/Notifications and try to test the incoming call event, I'm having the same problem.

The .wav file exists and Skype can play it back. I have tested this by assigning that particular .wav to a different event, where it works as expected. Additionally, the other events, e.g. outgoing call, appear to be working normally. This would suggest, that the problem lies with the incoming call event, rather than the particular sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Select A Particular Sound Device?

Oct 1, 2010

i know skype on Linux is crap but i have no choice as i now have only Ubuntu installed on this pc & I NEED SKYPE.so with the new version how do i select a particular sound device.i ask because skype only lets me select a specific sound 'platform' (pulseaudio).i have a motherboard with on-board sound & a USB voip phone (us robotics) and it the usb voip phone i want to use solely for skype

so is there something i can tell pulse audio that i want skype to ONLY use the usb phone or do i have to use the stupid sound preferences to change the system wide device to the usb phone which makes the whole thing a hindrance because i have no idea when someone calls me & when i have to quickly change the settings then turn off music then try to answer the call the person calling has gone!!!i like to have music playing in the background out of my hifi & the error noises come out of the usb phone as well when this is selected & to be honest it makes having a pc setup with multiple devices pointless and a hindrance

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype 2.2.0.25 No Sound No Chat No Call 11.04?

May 9, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 x32 Today I started Skype and I couldn't hear the Skype logging sound. Nevertheles I could see the contacts online. When I tried to write messages in the chat they couldn't receive them. When I tried to call nothing worked. After that it seemed that Skype was completely blocked. I clicked with the right button on the green icon of Skype and chose "quit" but it wouldn't close. 1 I logged off from Ubuntu and on again. I opened Skype. I made right click in the green icon and chose "Options"

2 I went to the "Sound Devices" menu in the left part of the window

3 I removed the tick for "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels"

4 I closed Skype and opened it again and the sound problem was gone.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound Through Headphones With Skype

Jan 15, 2011

I've installed Skype on my Debian Lenny AMD64 system using method describe in [URL] . I also installed pulseaudio using aptitude, but not sure that this required.

I can sign in to Skyp, call out to my local phone number; phone rings. But I have no sound through my Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB headset and no sound is heard on the phone.

If I click on Applications/sound & video/pulseaudio volume control, I get:

Connection failed: Connection refused

1) Am I missing a configuration step? If so what do I need to do where?

2) If not configuration, is there another issue that needs to be resolved? What? Where?

3) Why do I see Connection refused when I clike on pulseaudio volume control?

Note: I tried to listen to npr, but no sound there either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Intermittently Stops Its Sound Connection?

Mar 9, 2010

On my Acer laptop, I have Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS and a static version of the Skype Beta 2.1, specifically version 2.1.0.81. I recently made the upgrade to it from an earlier version because I needed to have the screensharing feature to work. Previously Screensharing from others was showing up in a tiny window I couldn't resize. But the Skype Beta 2.1 works fine regarding screensharing.

But the problem I'm having now is that the sound intermittently goes away, but only for Skype. It seems to go away if I walk away from my laptop for a long time. When this occurs, I cannot hear or record sound through Skype, but it works fine through other applications. If I shut Skype back down once it is in this failed state, and come back in, then it remains in this failed state. The only resolution is a reboot, and then it's fine again.

The only thing I can think might be the issue is the Gnome Power Manager, perhaps? I mean, my fan on my laptop spins down if I walk away for a long time, so I know some kind of laptop power management is engaging.

I tried following this guide:

[URL]

And it suggested removing PulseAudio and using esound instead. Well, I tried that and rebooted, and my desktop wouldn't boot properly. So, I did CTRL+ALT+F2, logged in, and then did "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop". All was well again, but unfortunately it brought back PulseAudio again.

Debian Multimedia :: Skype - Couldn't Get Into Sound Settings - Froze ?

Nov 30, 2010

I have a Debian Sid x86_64 installation on my laptop. I used to use skype a lot when I was on ArchLinux in chrooted 32bit environment. Nowdays, I tried running skype straight on the 64bit environment, when I finally got it running, I couldn't get into sound settings, it froze right when I clicked the Sound options... So I decided to make the 32 bit environment, so I used debootstrap and schroot and now I have fully functional 32bit chrooted system. It does the same thing all over again! it drives me crazy... I should probably tell you, I use pulseaudio. This makes it a little hard to like the distro for me... I used to be an ArchLinux user for quite few years, but I didn't want to solve so many things every day, so I went with debian

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Mic In Skype Works Temporarily Only - Sound Very Chirpy

Dec 5, 2009

I have quite a strange problem with Skype and Opensuse. First problem was that when I used microphone on Audigy 4 (from some reason recognised as Audigy 2) the sound which people received from me was very chirpy. This problem was solved easily, I just turned my on-board sound system on and started using micorphone from integrated card. And here comes my weird problem. Microphone works all right, but only for short period. After some time after I start talking to someone on Skype the microphone turns itself off, but I can still hear my interlocutors. The only solution is to go to Yast and restart sound system or to restart whole computer, both of which are not real solutions, but well, they sort of work. I'm using Opensuse 11.2 x64.

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.
