I.T. Crowd FAIL!

Once Again, Something That Should Be Basic is a Giant Pain

Hoookay, so apparently there's no easy way to feed sounds playing on your computer into a Skype call. Or if there is, I can't find it.

I've found ads for plug-ins c. 2007, but the websites they point to are either long-dead, or the plug-in is "A full professional enterprise suite! Only a bazillion bucks."

Dude. I want to hit a play button and stream a sound effect at the people I'm Skypin' with. It's all data. It should know how to do this right out of the box.

That's the thing that drives me most nuts about the internet generally. It's all data. It should all be able to talk to each other as part of its basic existence.

Harumph.
