Recently skype stopped working in Debian unstable amd64. It is silent or makes high-pitch buzz. In 64 bit applications such as mplayer sound works
Update 2 - after downgrading PulseAudio from 4.0 to 2.0 sound works. With PulseAudio 4.0 all of skype 4.2, 4.1, 4.0 are broken
more update - running skype with PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype (as suggested at https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/35690 ) makes calls work, (with PulseAudio 4.0 and skype 4.2) but notification sound are not played
I read about the fix earlier in the thread. Thanks anyway for the reply.
What I was asking if there is any progress on fixing the root cause so no workaround is necessary.
So, seems like no progress on this?
If you ever release a new version with pulseaudio > 2 support please make it also work with pulse >5 because that's what is now in debian testing/unstable.
