Can't listen to music and voices in skype calls

[ Edited ]

So I know this is a little weird but whenever I call someone in skype/ have someone call me,

I can't listen to music in my headphones AND hear them speaking.

What I'm asking is, how do I get both sounds to come through my headphones?

I used to be able to do this before the new Skype update but I don't remember how.?

To elaborate, what I would do is listen to both the conversation and the people in Skype,

but I would have the media player volume down to a minimum so I could still hear them.

I used to do this so they wouldn't be able to hear my music over my mic because for some reason

whenever I call people they can ALWAYS hear what I'm listening to.

Is there any way anyone can help me fix this? If you can I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance


Also: I have tried going through audio in skype and choosing communication headphones exclusively, but that doesnt seem to fix the problem at all.




I searched a little harder on the forums and found this:

Fixed my problem.

Sorry for the trouble xD
