Microphone does not pick up any sound

This happens at least with Mac OS X sometimes. It is an unfortunate problem with HTML5 audio API that is still under development.

  • Make sure that the microphone works and is getting the signal (System Preferences -> Audio -> Input -> Input level).

If the microphone works in Mac OS X, but not in this application, you can either

  • Reboot your computer and restart your browser
  • or open Activity Monitor, find a process named coreaudiod. Force quit coreaudiod process. Then restart your browser.


If you didn't find what you are looking for, see if you can find it from the Frequently Asked Questions page.
