I have recently purchased the Logitech c270 webcam to use for Skype. The video works perfectly, but the mic is useless.

I have changed the input to the mic on system settings and pulseaudio, and it gives feedback and shows that the mic is working. I have also successfully recorded a clip with it on Audacity and that works fine.

Any help would be much appreciated.


I have a C270 web cam I had the same problem. When I installed Wine and launched the Wine ConfigurationAudio tabVoice Input Device → (in the drop down arrow showed USB device), selected it and applied. Tested using Skype and test never missed a beat since.
