Voice Chat Problem

Jul 12, 2011 at 7:11 PM

Voice chat does not work. My own voice just comes back at me (repeated echo) and the other party cannot hear me. No firewall in use.

What is the other party using headphone or speaker?
I'm wondering how echo is coming when the other party can not hear you.

They're using built in speakers and microphone on their laptop. Working fine on Skype on that machine (and mine). I'm wondering too, but that's what's happening!

OK thank you for the feedback. I'll investigate and try to reproduce it.

Don't know if it makes any difference (or why it should) but I'm using my webcam microphone as the 'default recording device' (Win 7 Pro x64)

Hi Jeremy

Can you please download the latest revision and verify that the problem is not fixed.

...do you mean that the problem is fixed? Anyway, no it's not. Very strange though, I'm calling a Vista laptop (wireless) from a Win 7 Pro desktop (wired). They can now hear me and I get no echo / feedback. But I can't hear them...

Did you make sure your speaker was connected properly? Or volume was correct? Could you hear other sounds from your computer?

Apologies. It does work. The built in microphone in the Vista laptop is not working. Tested it with a headset and it seems to work fine in both directions.
