The tricky thing is that Skype actually sends 2 audio streams:
0) incoming call ringing;
1) a voice.
You can test the streams with "echo123" and "Options/Notifications/Test 
Event". Stream 0 is always visible as "System Sounds" in "pavucontrol". 
Stream 1 appears when you are talking.

Youtube audio appears in "pavucontrol" under the name of your webbrowser.

I should tell that Skype does recognize audio streams on my Arch Linux.

The wiki page that you mentioned describes tuning of another aspect. If 
you have 6-channel sound card and stereo speakers, set the number of 
channels to 2 in "alsamixer" and "default-sample-channels=2" in PulseAudio.
