I have Facetime on my intel iMac running Lion.  Vision is fine and I can hear the caller - but they cannot hear me.  The settings for the microphone sensitivity appear to be changed to lowest sensitivity when Facetime is running - regardless of what they normally are set at, and cannot be adjusted whilst using Facetime.  No problem with Skype.  Facetime on my macbook works fine - and does not take over the microphone settings.  Can anyone advise please?


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    All CAPS is like yelling.

     

    Go into Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup. Can you make the adjustments there?

    I revisited FaceTime on my iMac - having given up using it for several months (it worked fine on macbook, iPad and iPhone).  Now I find at the top of the page under the Video tag the microphone options - and my option was on 'line in' rather than 'internal' microphone.  I changed it to 'internal microphone' and FaceTime now works fine on my iMac.  So, I don't know if I was being a bit dim, or if one of the updates has addressed a problem - but it works now, and this is what I did to make it work.

    It's a bit of a shame, then, that there is no equivalent option for Audio calls.  I can make Video calls no problem, but for Audio calls, the other person cannot hear me.  :-(
