Matt’s Howto:

Pavucontrol: The best way to utilize PulseAudio without any frustration, running pavucontrol will allow you to use software like Jitsi, Empathy or Skype. To install pavucontrol, simply run
sudo apt-get install pavucontrol from a terminal window.

Now once I installed it on the Wild Dog PC from, I was immediately able to run the software, then jump over to my Jitsi installation, place a call to Chris and once there, toggle over to the Recording tab of the pavucontrol user interface. Now since I had a USB headset plugged in, I needed PulseAudio to make sure that Jitsi remembered that I wanted to use the headset and not the soundcard for my microphone needs. With the default volume controls under Ubuntu, this isn’t possible as setting up the input device doesn’t work on a per-application basis the way that pavucontrol does.
