When making a test call , skype mic works just fine , I can hear the record played, but when calling to users they cannot hear me , the mic doesint work

this problem appeared after some updates on Fedora 26 , dont know if it skype or pulse audio or alsa problem.

as I understand there could be problems for linux skype automatic volume adjust and pulse audio during a call with an user , but it also adjust volume on call with Test call service and it works , so do not understand what is changing during a call between users ?

Thank you !

If Skype's test call is successful, this is strange. Take a look if for some reason microphone goes muted.

reinstalled all again and tried to contact more users , so some users cannot

user from Ipad couldint hear my mic , few people could hear my mic on android phone and some couldint..

I think its an issue between different skype platforms and servers, do not know how to resolve it

I agree. From the moment that test call works ok, then it's not your problem. but skype closed code software and server. You can ask at skype forums.
