Skype Audio Not Working – Fix

Few months ago I had faced a problem with my desktop Skype, my audio wasn’t audible to the other person. I checked whether my webcam was in working condition. I use MS LifeCam VX-2000 and it has a built in microphone. However after checking with other system tools like Speech recognition in Windows 8, I found that my microphone was in working condition. So I checked the Skype microphone settings and found that the default microphone setting was set to my Creative Sound Blaster. I quickly changed it as shown in the following screenshots and everything was working fine as usual.

  • Open your Skype for desktop PC and then click on Tools.
  • Select Options.
  • Now go to the Audio option and you can set the type of audio input that you want to use.
