I don't know why, it only records the audio from speaker but not the audio from microphone. When I use call graph test, it shows that speaker and microphone both work fine. But in the .mp3 file, it only has the part of conversation from speaker.

finally, I found that I need to setup to "mono" in call graph, then it works
Updated on Sep 14, 2011then I will mark this as 4 stars
I've heard that this is supposed to be one of the best call recorders out there, with pros of having unlimited call recording time. and almost no cons. yeah well apparently this program just isnt for me because apon trying to use it always has an error message saying that it cant connect to skype and to restart the program. of course when i restart it says the same thing. i wish it would work as itd help for podcasting but it doesnt, sad but true
When it was working, it was great. Then it just stopped, even though I had it checked to AUTOMATICALLY record, so I did not get recordings of several important Skype calls. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it seems fine now, hope it stays that way
That it stopped automatically recording for some mysterious reason.
When it works, it's great, just be mindful that it may not keep working, so if you use it for Skype calls, always check to be sure it's actually started recording when you make the call.
-Easy to use -Not intrusive - good recording quality
- Need to start the recording. It doesnt record automatically. Other than that none.
If you need a free software to record skype calls then this is one of the best option. There are other shareware and 'tryware' but this one comes with no strings attached. Works well, CPU utilization is low and quality is good. I've been using it for more than two years and so far no big issues. Waiting for the option to automate recording instead of manual click.
