The sound starts playing "brp brp brp" because the jitter buffer is
exploding. Having a jitter buffer of 1000ms means that it takes more
than one second before the time you speak and the time your sister
receives the packet.

There can be several explanations :
- you are exhausting your bandwidth
- she is exhausting her bandwidth
---> Solution: try disabling video

- there is a problem with the audio driver of the soundcard
---> Solution: try using another device (for example, only the headset,
or only the soundcard)

Notice also that you are using a different device for capture and
playback: echo cancellation is not supposed to work in that case. I'm
not an expert and can not explain why, but it is mathematical ;-)
