I read on the Skipe forum that there are a lot of problems with the soundcards. I download the dotpup and installed it . As i assepted no sound . I found a skipe_dsp_hijack version 0.6 that makes a halfduplex sound card into a 'full duplex' . Now I have sound BUT the lady how trys to tell you something on echo123 sound if I was running a LP(33 rpm) on 45 rpm . But the text I speak to echo123 return correctly . The same if I call somebody them he hear me and I hear him as running a LP on 45 rpm . I cann't find any solution for this problem .
I running a OpenA board with AD1885 AC97 Codec (soundmax analogdevice)

The .wav files are connected to wavplay . The sound is equal of that of Skype . If I connect them to play.tcl then they sound correct .

PostPosted: Thu 03 Nov 2005, 15:11    Post subject: I have a similar problem  

IBM T30 laptop, SoundMax digital device. When I can hear anything that is. Usually I can't. I can only make one call, the next call gives me a sound device problem and I have to kill and restart. My calls out do get through, but nothing can be heard on both ends. or ocasionally if I get a voicemail announcement, it sounds like a ... chipmunk.

When I test the sound (levelmaker, etc.) it is fine, both mike and headset.

Can anyone please help.

It just replaces "wavplay".

So programs using that, should run ok.
Programs using another mechanism to play wav will have no success.

Mark , Danke

I saw that play.tcl works correct . I replaced wavplay by a link to play.tcl . This didn't help .
If I install your 'playwave' will it behave differend ? I could try it , but I like to understand it why.
As far I understand knowbody has any expirens with Skype ? I tryed Qnext but that VoIp does not work either .

Gruesse Menno .

Downgraded to Skype 1.10... Doesn't crap out after 1st call any more but ... chipmunk voice didn't go away and can't communicate - after I accept the call from another party skype throws "read error, res = -1 , handle = 25" and my voice can not be heard. I am giving up ... for tonight

did you use 'skype_dsp_hijack' by my this solves the error .
This happens because Skype dosn't close the mic driver correctly .
Look at http://juljas.net/linux/skype/.
It seem to my that Skype direct goes into the /dev/dsp maybe with wrong parameters or the dev is a older date . I have no idea how to find that out , sorry .
