Skype - Voice over IP / VoIP Communication

Skype - Voice over IP / VoIP Communication  - PCSTATS
Abstract: The idea of Skype is to have a self-maintaining network of users, who can communicate with each other by voice just as they would communicate using an instant messenger.

Let's take a look at using Skype: Installation

Installation of the Skype Beta echoes the procedure for every recent instant messaging program we have tried. It's a painless procedure, requiring only that you create a username and password and fill out as much of a personal profile as you choose. That's really all there is to it.

Beginning users might have a few issues outside the program itself however, given the propensity of Windows to disable and mute the microphone input by default. This can make voice communication rather difficult. Let's have a quick look at how to make sure your microphone jack is not muted so you can use a headset properly:

Go to 'start\all programs\accessories\entertainment\volume control.'

Now select the 'options' menu and choose 'properties.'

From this window, scroll down until you find the 'Microphone' entry. Ensure that it is checked and click 'ok.' Back in the volume control window, make sure that the 'mute' option is unchecked for the 'microphone' section. From here you can also adjust the volume and gain of the mic.
