No sound in Skype

So I have been trying to install Skype in Ubilinux RC3.0 (NOT kernel 4.4.11-2). I downloaded skype (skype-debian_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb, since there was no amd64 port available for Debian) from

https://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-linux/

and installed it as follows
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg -i skype-debian_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb

I got plenty of dependency errors, which is corrected with
sudo apt-get -f install

Now I can start skype and log in and it recognizes my HP 3100 webcam and all. But there is no sound when I make a voice call. Otherwise sound works fine in kodi for e.g.

During the installation I noticed the there was one dependency that couldn't be resolved:
libasound2-plugins:i386

I believe it is because of this that sound does not work in Skype. Any ideas on how to add this? I tried manually installing the library that I downloaded from here -

http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/alsa-plugins/libasound2-plugins_1.0.25-2_i386.deb

as follows
sudo dpkg -i libasound2-plugins_1.0.25-2_i386.deb

but I got an error saying that this is dependent on skype....

Any ideas anyone?
