@joreilly Hi John, do you have any screen recording software or software like Skype that could be interpreted as screen sharing? Even a snipping tool could be causing this error
@OneCakeLady Hmm. Ok. Not familiar with banana meter. The way I would troubleshoot it is: 1. Undo any recent changes to your setup. 2. Test the mic in simple environment, e.g. a Skype call. If the mic still makes the noise, remove the usb part and use just the 3.5mm jack. Just isolate issues

Glad I’m checking out this Covid WH press briefing because this release-web communications broadcast is absolutely terrible like everyone is dropping you can’t hear a single word “can you hear me now?” It’s like a Skype call with grandma. Things are getting better now. Nice.
@kozqme @fairietamaki HELP THE SKYPE EMOJSIABZ
@lovely84smg @M1Singapore I face similar issue recently with m1 data. Voice calls over Skype, Whatsapp, Facetime or Telegram - all get continuous disruption. Phone restart done. m1 also reset settings last week. Issue persists and raised with 1627. Engineers yet to revert. 😥 #m1dataissue
In other news, had a Skype meeting today with someone very smart looking, wearing a suit. Couldn’t help but laugh when their husband appeared, bare legged, in his dressing gown. It was 11.30am
@kocienda I still can’t work out what caused Zoom to be everyone’s default, it’s terrible and wasn’t a household brand until March ‘20, how did Skype, Facetime or Discord not dominate this market
Middle managers: They are OK doing their eight hours of Zoom and Skype calls per day, but they can’t do anything in terms of coaching, mentoring, guiding, developing — assuming they ever did. They are doubling down on “making the trains run” as opposed to anything else.
@RebBrooks1 that must feel terrible! Did you get to see them via Skype/Facetime at least?
@bartonwillage I guess it blows my mind that people are still stressing the possibility of tech issues at this point. Academics, non-academic hiring departments, and JMCs should be comfortable using Skype/Zoom/WebEx/whatever. They weren't a year ago, sure. But now they should be!
@SkypeSupport hi, I bought a subscription and was delivered something else. My computer and phone no longer recognize skype and ask me to install the app. I need help.
And yet, the solutions I'm given are "pay for phone service," "try to get phone service from google or skype, etc.," "let us know when you have access to a phone and we'll probably help you." Why ******** would I spend time or money...just so I could give a company my money?
@thexainy How about Skype? I think they have a service where you can get a number that you can be called over the internet.
@TrumagooFM Holy crap man wtf. I should seek would seek some therapy for ptsd to be honest, I'm very sure you can get some help online via zoom/skype sessions, please please consider this!
My phone is broken so I can't speak to my irl friends The only way I could talk to them would be if I was allowed discord but my dad blocked discord on the internet, and he's telling me to use skype🤮
Im a nonthreatening feminist boy, come talk to me on Skype! talk to me on skype about your problems as a woman i sympathize i’m taking womens studies. I took women’s studies I know what ‘systematic’ means.
In-person meetings help foster relationships in a way that Skype or conference calls often do not.
@Skype @SkypeSupport theme support as per system appearance is broken on iOS ver: 8.66
@WhatsappPrivacy I was thinking if WhatsApp has paid service and it has able to call directly mobile number or landline number through WhatsApp as like Skype has different plan based on location and requirements. Now days people are frustrated installing many app for each service one app.
I rarely use skype and had a big problem with it this morning. couldn't search for a particular person. they've added me to the chat, but i didn't get any notification. wth skype
@DannyM52233420 I don’t think I’m ready to do Skype calls now Danny but maybe down the road!
@hikosaemon I remember after the 3/11 quake nobody could make phone calls via their mobile phone so these pay phones saved the day for many. My wife and I had Skype on our phones so we could call, but everyone trying to do that will send mobile internet to a crawl for sure thus not working.
What confounds me is that all 3 cameras can be selected in other applications (Skype, Discord, etc.) so I can confirm each camera is properly connected and capable of being utilized in an application. So why is it that OBS is having trouble getting them to display?
If you’re in the business of giving free help to unknown researchers that are giving you 0day because “they trust you”, consider not relying on encrypted zip files. Validate your other party. Phone, video, Skype, authenticated encrypted communication. Not a ZIP file by email.
Just found out my years of using Skype is no more. It's gone totally dead. Thanks, Microsoft, for killing a very low cost service that was great for what I needed it for, and have no easy way to replace. I needed basic, not 'high energy eating' bells and whistles. :-(
@cherriebIossoms @jediqueenie @snapchatsupport It‘s ridiculous. Having that problem with Skype. It’s so bad cause it comes back to us and users think it’s really me who betrays them. :/
@SkypeSupport The latest update on Mac has completely broken Skype on my computer, I can't even get logged in. I've already uninstalled/reinstalled several times. Can you please help? I use Skype for work. Thanks.

@Skype After responding to an update request I can no longer log into Skype on my laptop. It says there is problem (startup load error) logging in/out there is no joy. Reloaded no effect. The same update is waiting on my desktop but I’m reluctant to execute it. Any ideas please.
