Re: [podcasters] Playing Audio over Skype to others
- Try a Skype plugin called "Pamela" and see if that does the job for you.

- If you are only using the one computer, "Pamela" may work. I haven't tried it.
The problem I have is that Skype won't stream audio that the computer plays.
I solved the problem with lots of equipment.
My netbook that I use for Skype.
An Alesis 4 channel USB mixer. This goes into the netbook. All audio comes out of and in through this.
An iPad (although you can use anything), lined into the mixer.
A desktop PC. A line from the headphone jack on the mixer goes to the mic jack for recording. I use a splitter so I can also run my headphones.
This allows me to play audio on the iPad directly into the Skype stream. All parties hear the audio at the same time.
NOTE: Do some testing with your caller BEFORE you begin your show. I find that the iPad audio is either way too loud, or way too soft on the caller's end.
Be prepared for some post-work with this setup.
