Take a sound mixer, such as as veromix. Split the sound coming from microphone into right and left channel by unlocking the sound ...

Why not use Desktop Sharing? This is a front end for VNC, which will allow you to easily start up a Video Session (I guess that is the point of your question). Personally I'd stay away from things like Teamviewer (it works, but security, Wine, authentication speak against it)

I was having the same issue. Skype wouldn't play any sound. I'm running Lubuntu 16.04. I followed what it was advised above by a couple of users... sudo apt-get install pulseaudio and now I have audio when I open and make a call using Skype :) . Thanks!

If it is to have skype installed on your system, you should install the Ubuntu native skype support rather than trying to install the Windows version via playonlinux. The playonlinux tool is for Windows applications which are don't have a native Linux version. To install the linux version provided in the Canonical ...
