Recording for Skype - yes please!

19.10.2004 - 02:47 / filled under default

Adam Curry mentioned it in his DSC today: Would be great to have a way to record skype calls. I just phoned one (two?) hours with Nicolas from ipodcast.de and parts of that could go out as a podcast, if - yes if we had recording.

As for now I am not quite sure whether, how or about what I want to podcast, but adding some content of my own to another podcast seems like a good idea. For example chitchat with another blogger / podcaster. :o)

I just did my first computer radio show on a local radio station (Offener Kanel, paid by taxes but open to everyone) with a friend of mine and while trying to 'make' content alone was very very hard, it just went supereasy when talking to each other. So naturally recording skype calls would be an ideal basis for podcasts. :o)

(But it should be mentioned that recording phonecalls is illegal in Germany if not explicitly allowed on both sides - but that should not be the problem here.)

  1. Adam was mentioning using skype as an answering machine. Recording skype calls can be done. Adam and Dave (Winer) did that weeks ago.
    Take a look at audacity (audacity.org i think), gives you the possibility to record your mix-out signal, so it will pick up every noise you produce with any program.

  2. audacity was one reason why we had to reconnect us in our skype session. usually, it does a good job, but recording a skype session, isn't audacity's best feature...

  4. Just try HotRecorder (www.hotrecorder.com) it´s very easy to use and it's free.

  5. Skylook offers a very simple to use and set up feature that automatically records all Skype conversations to a folder in Outlook (as MP3 attachments). You need Outlook 2000/XP/2003 and Skype 1.2 or later. http://www.skylook.biz

  6. Yes but why should I go through Outlook folders as an attachement? What sounds interesting though is recording of the logs, because I can't get the chat history to work. :(
