Recording Skype Calls


Recommended Posts

I have been trying out a popular Voice Over IP product called Skype (www.Skype.com). Works well, but I'm interested in catching product testimonials by recording Skype calls. All the following products record the calls fine: Windows Sound Recorder, RecordPad, TrxRecorder, I-Sound, Replay Telerecorder - but with a very disruptive echo for the remote person.

 

Very strange, with all software the conversation is fine then start the recorder and a disruptive echo occurs for the remote person. The echo continues even after the recording is stopped and the recording software shut down. The echo only goes away when the Skype call is stopped and a new one originated. If interested see lengthy discussion here:

I've also attempted to test recording Net2Phone from Yahoo instant messenger, however in my couple of tests I had a bad echo even without recording, so I stopped.

 

Millions of people use Skype and no one seems to have a good easy solution to recording Skype VOIP calls. I'm not sure if the issue extends to other VOIP services or not.

 

Ideas? Any solutions from NCH?

 

I tried the TRX Recorder for regular phone, but looks like my Conexant Softk56 Modem(M) may not really be a Voice modem or have the right drivers. ... Could also not get RadioShack Recording Control to record by using the mic port. <sigh>

I didn't know how to correspond with you but did you use skype as the VOIP service provider and got vrs recording to work. I would like to know as that is what I am trying to do right now.

thanks
