Sometime, somewhere, you’re going to have a need to record a conversation over Skype. Maybe you’re interviewing a candidate for a job. Maybe you’re making a video podcast and are interviewing an author or performer. Maybe you’re recording a business meeting, so there’s an official record of what was discussed. Sooner or later, the need is going to pop up. Lucky for you, you’re listening to this podcast, so you’re prepared with the tools you need to make it happen. You’re the tech star of the office! Seriously though, today Glen is going to introduce you to the best Skype recording apps available for Macs and Windows.
Social Rank takes your Twitter following and segments your list by various sorting & filtering options. From there custom list can be made that pulls in identity by profiles.
Remember Klout? Kimba says it’s still alive and kicking. She’s going to tell you what is happening with them.
Recording Skype Audio & Video
Check the Skype website for an expanded list, but we’re going to be covering the most full-featured apps available.
Our requirements: record audio and video from both sides of the conversation.
Here are your best bets:
Ecamm Call Recorder for Skype. Like all the Ecamm products, this is the gold standard others are measured by. I’m intrigued that a young (maybe not so much now, they launched in the 90’s) pair of twin brothers from Massachusetts, Ken and Glen Aspeslagh, can turn out such good software time and time again. But I digress. Call Recorder for Skype is used by lots of the big interviewers; folks like Andrew Warner of Mixergy.
Pamela. Free version limited to 5 minutes video, 15 minutes audio. Purchase remove the limit (prices covered from Euros): Basic – $16.67, Pro – $27.82 Pro offers the ability to FTP or upload files to blogging / podcasting sites.
