When I try to use Skype, my voice echoes. I usually will also get what sounds like feedback. If I use the Skype echo test, my voice plays back fine.

I have tried capturing video with VLC and have the exact same issues.

I used guvcview as a quick test and that seemed to work fine. I also tested recording using Audacity and that played back fine.

  • AMD Quad core A6 3620
  • Radeon HD 6530D
  • 4GB memory
  • Ubuntu 12.10 with all updates
