Skype Call Recording Software

Skype Recorder is a free call recording software for Skype that can manually or automatically record Skype conversations on Windows devices.

A call recording software for Skype can be used to record Skype conversations that you are having when you use the service to make calls.

Another method would be to simply record all sounds over a period of time with a software like Audacity. This approach does have severe disadvantages that call recording applications do not have.

The option to record the conversations automatically is one of the most comfortable options that can be a real timesaver in a business environment.

Skype Recorder

The program will search for Skype upon launch, and if found displays a notification to allow access to Skype so that calls can be recorded. It is by default configured to manually record both sides of a Skype conversation.

This can be changed in the program's options to only record one side of the conversation, and to automatically record calls in Skype.

Other available options include starting the program with the Windows operating system, and to configure the mp3 recording quality. The default settings record calls in stereo with a bitrate of 64 Kbit and a sample rate of 32000.

Skype Recorder uses the lame mp3 encoder to encode the conversations in the mp3 format. A history is available that can be used to quickly play previously recorded Skype calls directly in the program.

Skype Recorder is one of the few (maybe even the only) call recording software programs for Skype that offers automatic recording of calls. It is also completely free of charge, and has no limits attached to it such as recording limits for instance.

The program is compatible with the Microsoft Windows operating system and can be downloaded from the developer's website.

Update: Skype Recorder is still available and in active development. The last version at the time of writing this update was released in August 2016. It is compatible with the latest versions of Windows -- Windows 8 and 10 to be precise.
