The build-in mic of my webcam does not work with Skype (but does respond to checks).
I connected a webcam with build-in microphone through USB to use for video calls, but although the video output is just fine, I can't get the mic to work in Skype (If relevant, my distro is Mint 9 Gnome 32bit). I checked with the volume meter of the PulseAudio Manager, and the microphone is functioning and responding even to low sounds, so it's not a hardware problem. I assume that Skype is not recognising the camera as an audio input device, but I don't know how to change that. In the Sound Devices tab of the Options menu of Skype it states as microphone the "PulseAudio server (local)" and has no other option (similarly at the Video Devices tab it states as only option for webcam the "USB2.0_Camera). Can anyone help me solve this problem?
