Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 489244
All bluez versions after 4.27 break compatibility with Skype
Last modified: 2009-04-23 13:22:33 EDT
Bluez 4.27 is the last bluez that works correctly as a service with skype.
I have been using skype with bluez bluetooth service fine with my h550
motorola headset. After 4.27 on any new versions of bluez up to 4.32, when I call I hear the headset activating but I get no sound
coming or going(or maybe they can hear me, I don't know, but I can't
hear them), but I do hear a short sound when I click hang up.
mplayer -ao alsa:device=bluetoothh550 skypering.wav
That still plays a sound fine through my headset.
I'm currently using this configuration, just like from 4.27.
device 00:1A:0E:08:03:90 # h550
2 things to get from that:
1) We can't easily debug proprietary applications
2) Bluetooth audio was known to be broken/break easily with ALSA
Feel free to try the new support in F11, through PulseAudio:
