Okay, but what about skype? 

First of all, under Debian I needed to install

With this in place, running jackd and a JACKified .asoundrc
audio Adobe Flash videos under Firefox gets to the audio

Having installed alsa-oss, the following produces sound:

	aoss bplay somefile.wav 

However invoking


does not locate the audio device, and 

	aoss skype 

emits an error message:

	ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libaoss.so'
	from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

This problem remains after replacing the previous 32-bit
client by a new 64-bit client.

FWIW, I found this snippet in ~/.Skype/shared.xml


Any tips would be welcome.
