I am testing out a fresh install of the latest, and fully updated, Manjaro XFCE edition. In it, I noticed that the "web desktop app" versions of the Microsoft Office suite online including Skype.
I was able to sign into Skype with that app, but when I tried to call the Skype test call service, I saw that the video and microphone icons are greyed out and I can't click on them.
I then clicked on the gear icon to look at the settings, but I can't find any option to set up the camera or microphone.
To be clear, I tested the camera and microphone in other programs like Audacity or Jitsi Meet in Firefox and they worked. So this seems to be a problem within the Skype web app.
I also know that I can just install the actual desktop app for Skype via the AUR, but wanted to see if I can get the bundled web app to work first. Can any one advice? Thanks!
P.S. I tried installing and running the official desktop app from the AUR and sound/video works.
