I’ve been for over a month using skype alot to communicate with korean teachers or language group’s.
One teacher gave me a recommendation to use – http://voipcallrecording.com/ to record the audio piece. It’s free and looking at the software it’s updated alot. That’a good thing. I have had it installed for a week or two but right away I noticed it would be nice to have the video too. It worked just fine don’t get me wrong and if you want the audio section of something like a skype session it did the job just fine. I set my default folder to a more obvious location and to auto-record but when a white board or visuals are involved too having the video piece would be nice.
I tried a few ‘free’ ones and one from http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-Video-Call-Recorder-for-Skype.htm looked the most promising. Got it all setup and did not do a ‘test’ before the first session last week in trying it. It just error’d out when the call was established and wouldn’t even run. Looking at their support section of the site I see some other’s having the same problem and ultimately the support person told the person to open a ticket with them.
Googling around for other’s didn’t throw awhole lot of choices out there. Some but not alot like I thought. I just ended up spending three hours or so going over the one’s I found and testing them and ended up with http://www.evaer.com/ skype video recorder. It’s last been updated in Nov of 2016, say’s it’s supported from XP to windows 10 and even though it records only 5 minutes in the trial phase it did just fine. So I bought the standard license through paypal for 19 bucks. Playing with some settings and having the wife do video calls to me it did just what I wanted. All setup for the coming week. We’ll see how big the video call files get after an hour or so but in testing it seemed to be a good piece of software.
