Hi, Looks like you've been waiting awhile for a response. pulseaudio or ALSA are your choices. Look for your configuration utility on the sound card and see whether changing that setting (it's probably a checkbox) helps. If not, my system has a file at /etc/sound/profiles/README that might help you. Is your cam not giving video, or just sound? If it's a video problem, you might want to downgrade to a stable version of skype instead of the beta. beta versions are for people who are testing software that might not be working correctly on release.
