The port is used to "set up Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP), Real-Time Control Protocol (RTCP)" according to Apple. According to wiki, "the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) defines a standardized packet format for delivering audio and video over IP networks. RTP is used extensively in communication and entertainment systems that involve streaming ...

To disable iSight and other cameras, use: sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleCameraInterface.kext (tested on 10.9) I'm not aware of a way to disable audio input without affecting output. It's the same hardware so unloading/removing the kext probably won't work. One step you can take is to turn the input volume down to zero in your sound ...

If you accidentially disallowed Skype app accessing your microphone on iOS7 you can change the setting via: Settings -> Privacy -> Microphone -> Skype

You don't need special hardware for this. Plug in both headphones, then open Audio Midi setup from /Applications/Utilities. Click the plus in the lower left corner and choose "Create Multi-Output Device." Check the checkboxes beside both headphones in the new panel on the right. If you want to rename it, you can double click the new entry in the list on the ...

I think you can specifically target your iSight camera by (re)moving /System/Library/QuickTime/QuickTimeUSBVDCDigitizer.component According to this: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20070323094959262 The link does mention that it is 10.4 specific and I haven't tried it under 10.8/10.9 but it's a good place to start.

Ensure Settings > Privacy > Microphone > Skype is turned on.

Following your hint on Headphone jack. When using headphones only (no microphone) (the ones with the 2 black ring plug) the system activates the built in microphone. When not plugged in, the system now thinks you plugged in an external microphone and it will not activate the built in one. The reason for that would be a STUCK contact pin in the jack. It ...

I assume your microphone works fine under OSX? Did you download and install the bootcamp drivers for Windows 7? Windows needs the driver installed to "see" the microphone and access it. Can you see the microphone in the device manager? Did you check the input levels for the microphone in Windows audio setup control panel? The gain may need to be ...

There are three microphones on the iPhone 5. This setup is used to eliminate background noise while on call. One is ideally placed at the back, and two in the front. So basically when you're covering the bottom, the mic on the ear piece picks up the audio input.

You can use the earphone portion of the headset by plugging the appropriate cable into the audio output jack on the Air. The Air does not support plug-in microphones as it only has 1 analog output jack. The boom and Startech splitter will not be of use in this configuration. My recommendation would be to purchase a Mac-compatible stereo headphone + mic to ...

Turns out I'm dumb. For some reason the upper slider was set to 0, effectively silencing the microphone. Setting it to 100 solved my problem.

Theoretically, yes, it should still work fine. However, as I'm sure you're aware the iPad 3 does not have the Lightning connector. You will need to purchase a Lightning to USB Camera Adapter so that you can connect your USB device to the new iPads with Lightning connectors.

Disabling Input To disable the input, I'm not entirely sure. Here's what I thought of: You can use a internal audio input device like SoundFlower, which basically routes the audio output into the audio input. You can mute the volume (although you said you don't want to do only that) You could take a look around the /System/Library/Extensions/ folder and ...

No. Though you could conceivably write an app that would do this, there is no way to configure this given a stock iPhone.

The short answer is sorry, but there seem to be no driver to support the external input in the headset. My solution that works is to get a cheap USB to headset audio adapter that support the 4 pin 3,5mm jack of the headsets. Here is one that works, but you can surely find others in your local market: ...

Yes, I have a Macbook air with Skype and Quite comfort QC 15 headphones with the iphone cable fitted on it and it works like a charm. Microphone is detected as an external mic and headphones as a plugged in headphones. 100% tested on a Macbook air 13" mid 2011

How about the "Wiretap" from Extrasensory devices?

I haven't tried this, but if you're willing to experiment: Try using (no joke) Garageband with your aggregated device setup. No need to hit the record button, but you can use the monitor function to hear yourself speak. And since it presumably knows what to do with both mics, you might both be able to speak. You may also use LineIn to be able to hear ...
