Screen Sharing Sound

Is it possible to share screens with someone and at the same time let the other person hear what is happening on your computer? If I want to show a video on my screen sharing while I have a headset I can't get the sound to carry over as well. I have tried changing the audio settings in my system preferences and skype preferences but it will only give me the one option for input and for output of my headphones. How can I share sound and my screen while wearing headphones with a mic?

Re: Screen Sharing Sound

I have the same question except that I'm on a pc not a mac. The other person can see the video on my screen, but can't hear the sound. She can hear me. I can hear myself, the video, and the other person through my headphones (with a mic).

Re: Screen Sharing Sound

Same here!  I want to play video (with audio) while screen sharing during video meetings to small groups.  I want them to be able to hear the audio track on the video.  It seems Skype can't handle that.  is it true?

Re: Screen Sharing Sound

I have Skype Premium and I also want to screen share QuickTime videso. We can hear each other, see each other and see the QuickTime video.  I can hear the QuickTime audio on my end, she can't on her end.  How can we get an answer as to how to make this work?  Or how can we alert Skype that it is a problem?
