in ubuntu maverick I had to many issues with pulse audio and skype. It is well documented in the skype forum. since I use skype a lot. I uninstalled pulse. and use only the alsa system. this may not help you. but. as I test all the new pulse stuff and maintain some pulse packages for some of my friends I find pulse to be a pain.
that said pulse is a layer that uses alsa I will instruct how to capture your mic for alsa.

I was trying to adhere to: "Then if. please if at any time you need to mention M$. put it in general. at the risk of sounding rude but not meant to be. I will not waist my time on reading about M$.
your cam is well document and supported by the kernel."
So, I referred to it as the "unmentionable OS".
In the meantime, I have followed Drakeo's directions and configured alsa. I uninstalled Skype and will reinstall it next. My "microphone" is contained within the Webcam. I imagine this would be the "USB Device" instead of the default microphone?
Nylex I agree to disagree you are a very nice person that cares. From the amount of posts you are a very special Linux user for this forum and your help has been above and beyond most. keep up the great help. M$ has enough google space. It is only my point of view not the view of the Guru or root.
we will save this for another thread. I am sure M$ we will keep it in general.
The skype issue and Pulse Audio problem has been around a long time. That is why in skype pulse audio forum for now you understand why I uninstalled pulse audio in Kubuntu 10.10 it was to much of a problem. and it is per machine per hardware. I am not telling you to uninstall. But pulse audio and skype
are a real problem skype is not a open source program so there is no way to fix it through us the open source community. Skype for linux is written to alsa. I use skype all the time and that is why on my testing Kubuntu system I got rid of Pulse and installed alsa libraries.
some day skype may want to fix it.
and Pulseaudio is just a sound server that reads alsa .
This is the big reason why slackware builds we are no longer maintaining pulseaudio.
