Microphone issue with Jitsi

I don't know where else to post this so I guess I'll put it here.


After Logen had recomedded Jitsi as a secure alternitive to skype in one of TheTek's, I went out and got it, but it's kind of a pain in the ass.

Jitsi doesn't detect my headset.  In the audio options nothing registers until I change the audio system from WASAPI to port audio, then if I go and restart the session I have to change it back to WASAPI.  After I go through that mess, the audio test buttons make sound but no mic, even though sype and windows both recieve a mic signal just fine.  Anyone have an idea what I'm not doing to get this going?  I attempted to round up the usual suspects from Google, Jitsi, etc; but I cannot find what I'm looking for.

I'm running Jitsi 2.2 on an AMD 64bit Windows 7 and the Realtek HD audio Manager.

Thanks for reading.
