Currently Being ModeratedFeb 7, 2007 10:38 PM (in response to tbirdparis)Its most likely network issues. If you're at a university, they firewall everything. Call them and ask them to release the Skype issue. If you're friend has the MBP and is using skype without an issue, try using it on his internet outlet if still no go, call Apple care.
Also try it at a different location, a location where everything isnt firewalled.

Thanks for the input.
That makes sence but why if I call Skype to Skype all appears to be OK? I've used the Skype test call any do not ahve this problem. It's only when I use SkypeOut.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
dunno. my cousin always goes on about how great skypeout is from his PC. but once he called me from it to gloat about the great things he can do with his PC that I can't, and was leaving a message on my answerphone as I was out. the sound quality was rubbish, sounded like he was calling from space. and then, just at the point where he was saying, 'yep, it seems to be working great--' it cut out. lol. funniest phone message in a long time.. have saved it..G5 2x2Ghz 4GB -- MBP C2D 17" 2GB 7200rpm, Mac OS X (10.4.8), LP 7.2.3 /PT HD3 / UAD1 / digi192io
Make sure you have the best way opened up for Skype.
If you use Wireless Router, or if you turned on Firewall of OS X. Make sure you set a Port Forwarding for Skype on your Router, and Opens up the port for Skype in Firewall.
This would allows you to have a direct connection to Skype server instead of having 3rd party computer relay for you, what would have quite an impact on quality.
That's from the Skype website. Hope that helps!

I have a new imac 24" and just downloaded the latest version of skype. I also have a smc router for other computers. i get an error "valid port numbers are 1024...65535"
how do I fix this issue? I am not savvy enough to understand the info that is provided by Skype, and need some step by step info, I think.
can anyone help?
Thanks, Neilimac 24", Mac OS X (10.4.8)
I´m having a problem with audio and Skype on my MBP, too.
The microphone is built right next to the left speaker, so that´s causing some nasty feedbacks (what was Apple thinking???).
I´m setting the sound balance to the right speaker only now when doing calls with Skype. Is there a way to get this done automatically (and resetting it after the call)?
