My girlfriend and I are getting really irritated with how quiet Skype is on my new MacBook Pro. Even with the volume turned up to the max, I can still barely hear her even with my air conditioning and fan off.
At first, I thought about buying a pair of speakers, but even the small USB ones would be irritating to have to have around all the time. Then I thought of buying a new sound card, but then I realized that iTunes with the preamp in the equalizer set to 12 is actually more than loud enough.
Is there a way that I could connect to that and make Skype that loud? Or is there any other way to make it louder?
On a smaller note, I've been having the same issue with movies played in Google Chrome.
