Hey there everyone, I've been having a hell of a time trying to get my other applications to work while Skype is running.
This is what happens...
Let's say I take a call in Skype. If I try to open Windows Media Player and try to listen to music, the player will say that the sound files are unavailable/unreadable. If a song was already playing it will go silent, unable to make another sound until I close the call.
It gets worse... It's not only in WMP, but also in Firefox, any video games I open up, and just about everything in general.
Yes, I know that when you're in a call you should be listening to the person, but I tend to use Skype to chat while in game with friends, or to share videos on Youtube. It's become a real inconvienence.
I'm using an HP Pavilion dv6 Laptop with quad-core 1.6 processor and 4GB ram, running a Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OS.
