Skype: PC audio loops through mic
I'm not sure if this thread is in the right place; or if the title is descriptive enough for others with the same problem to find. Still, here goes:
I've got Linux Mint upo and running, and it's pretty cool. However, whenever I'm talking on Skype with my friends, they all report that they can hear my audio from my PC clearly.
I use a headset for Skype calls, and it's never been a problem through Windows. When I tinkered around with my audio settings, I can clearly see that the audio from my PC is transmitting through the mic. This is especially annoying for my frineds when we're watching a live stream together, as they get 'echoes' from the stream as I'm transmitting it to them as well as them getting the audio from their stream.
I heard that Linux Mint uses PulseAudio, so I installed some of the config packaged (pavu-control or somesuch), but it doesn't seem to have the option to seperate my audio channels.
I'm using the audio from my motherboard, as I don't have a seperate sound card. I'm using the audio jacks on the front of my PC.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd be very grateful. If you need mroe information on my setup or whatever, just ask and I will try to answer :)
Thank you in advance!
