Skype sounds stops media player or other sound sources

Whenever I’m listening to an mp3 or watching a movie and a skype message popups, my media stops playing. Here is the solution: Edit the file:

/etc/pulse/default.pa

Locate this line and comment it:

#load-module module-role-cork

Restart.

That should do the work.
