    Skype reduces windows volume


    Not sure if this is skype or windows.

    Out of the box, Windows is set to reduce volume on a call by 80%. Normally, I go in and change it to "do nothing" through the sound control panel, and it's fine. Now when I'm on a call, Skype reduces my volume, and windows still has "do nothing" on the sound control panel. I have to hit "reduce by 80%" -> "apply" -> "do nothing" -> "apply" EVERY TIME... I haven't tested if it's just closing skype, or rebooting the computer that triggers this, but I was hoping someone has seen this and knows a fix.

    :)

    New Skype Version Released

    Although, not one of my favourite programs, Skype is considered a high priority software application. The latest 3.5.0.239 release, is now available for download and it fixes some major bugs:
    • bugfix: Links with invalid % encodings were executed
    • bugfix: Data execution protection may have crashed Skype
    • bugfix: Pressing escape did not end call
    • Security improvements to ensure it is no longer possible to shut down Skype from a web page
    DOWNLOAD

    N73 4.0747.31.0.1 volume reduced?

    Has anybody else noticed that the volume has been reduced on the music player using the original headphones/mic after applying Version 4.0747.31.0.1?

    The volume on the right earpiece seems to have dropped more than the left. (It's not my hearing or the balance settings, before somebody asks; I've tried them back-to-front too.)

    Also does anybody know where the list of fixes / enhancements is for this upgrade?

    The official list doesn't include this version...

    Thanks, Godders.

  4. Skype reduces windows volume

    Skype?

    As this is a now quite established messenger system of sorts perhaps a Skype feature for people skype names so perhaps some real time problem solving/discussions could be mounted?
    Just a wee suggestion.
    What does everyone else think?
