So when I listen to anything on my laptop, netflix, youtube, pandora, anything at all, the sound will come through in my headphones. But, the moment I go on skype and someone video calls me the audio will stop playing through my headphones and will only play through my lap top.
I am using a dell lap top, windows 7. My audio settings all respond as working. When skyping I can be heard and I can hear someone else its just that what ever I am doing on my lap top the sound wont come out in my headphones only the speakers.
My audio settings are Internal mic high def and Speakers/headphones highdef
Set the sound output to Speakers.
In the call, Click Call quality >> Speaker >> Set the output to your Speakers.
Press WinKey + R to open the Run window
WinKey (the button is located between the left Ctrl and Alt with the Windows logo)
Type: mmsys.cpl and press Enter
Click on Playback >> Set the speakers device as default (Set as default playback device & Set as default communication device).
Click on Communications >> Select Do Nothing >> OK.
In Skype, Go to Tools >> Options... >> Audio settings >> Make sure Speakers and Ringing both set to Speaker / Headphones >> Save changes.
YAY!!!!! I've been trying to fix this for months thank you so much this is the only thing that has worked.
