Microphone wont work

[ Edited ]

I have a Macbook Pro . The microphone won't work. People can not hear what I say. But my microphone will work with everything else like facetime, just not skype. How do I fix this?

Re: Microphone wont work

Try a Skype test call to Echo 123. That way you can test your mike with Skype and see if it works.

Re: Microphone wont work

My microphone wont work for skype but is ok with other programs. I have tried test calls for several times but it says there's something wrong with microphone.

Re: Microphone wont work

I have already tried the test call and it does not work. I watch the video on skype for how-to for mac if there is a microphone problem but it does not give me a tool options as on it does for a pc. Skype should improve this problem to make it more friendly towards Mac users...

Re: Microphone wont work

I'm sure you've already done it but what settings do you have in Skype\Preferences\Audio/Visual? If you say something is there absolutely no registration at all with the blue dots under the microphone setting with built-in microphone (internal) selected?

to Skype\Preferences\Audio and in Microphone, select in-built microphone if using MAC mic or line-in if using external headphones. In my case, it was set as line-in while I was trying to use MAC mic. Hope it gives some clue.

Re: Microphone wont work

I have the same problem... and I can't find a way of making it work. Did you ever fix yours? How? Did anyone on the Skype community give you the right advice?
