Windows 7: A very strange question about skype

A very strange question about skype


Skype used to let me stream whatever my computer was playing through my microphone to the person I was skyping with. For example, I could play a youtube video and she'd hear my youtube audio through my mic. This is no longer the case. How do I go back to this? If I plug out and plug in my USB microphone again, she can hear both me and the youtube audio(or any audio I'm playing). However, then I can't see her (video freezes) or hear her.

Basically, I want her to be able to listen to the audios I'm playing on my computer through my microphone. Even if I get the mic real close to the speakers, skype samples that audio and gradually mutes it for her.
