Audio settings for Skype on Archlinux

By default Skype on Arch linux does not take input from the microphone. It is usually because the channel to capture audio input is set to zero. It can be easily changed in alsamixer. Start by running the command alsamixer in console.
The default view above does not show all channels. Hit F5 to view all channels and increase the values of the channels 'LR Capture' and 'Digital' as shown below.
