That's because OSS by itself doesn't support more than one channel at a
time. You need to support virtual channels (a FreeBSD only feature
AFAIK) by entering in the following lines in /etc/sysctl.conf:
hw.snd.maxautovchans = 20 # Adjust to fit the number of simultaneous
sound channels you want enabled at once.
Thank you for your help, but I am not sure what you are telling me to do, are
talking about the ports or the linux build? How would this cause Skype to take
voice from one device and output to another? If you could explain your answer a
little more, I would appreciate it, thank you.
