Review

Skype Recorder is a very simple and small application that allows recording Skype audio conversations (“Skype calls”). It compensates the fact that this feature is not provided by Skype by default.
The most obvious characteristic of Skype Recorder is its simplicity. It is very lightweight and neat and doesn’t come with any settings at all, except letting you change the hotkeys that allow you to start, pause and stop the recording procedure. It can also be set to automatically record calls when they are received, without requiring your manual intervention. Despite being very simple, it is very handy as it can also be used to record other types of conversations besides Skype calls. It can record AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo Messenger, and Net2Phone conversations as well.

On the other hand, this application doesn’t allow you to change the file format of the recording or its parameters. You will have to deal with WMA files having the same bitrates or sample rates. Furthermore, the interface cannot be resized or customized. Even if it has some flaws and I don’t think it’s the best Skype recording tool one can find, it’s a decent tool that can represent a viable choice for when you need to quickly and easily record Skype calls.

What's new in version 5.8
If you have ever tried the free trial before, you will know that Skype Recorder will cut off the Skype call when it reach the max recording length. We have received many feedback to complain this problem and finally we make a progress on this. Since AthTek Skype Recorder v5.8, the trial limitation will not cut off the Skype call if you have reached the max recording length. But the recording length will still be less than 10 minutes. This means you can only record the first several minutes of a Skype call if you are using a trial version of Skype Recorder v5.8. Michael Hsu suggested us to improve the auto answer features. We are planning to make it more intelligent in the future, but not for now. Currently we can only add a prompt audio message after the Skype call has been getting through. Also you are allowed to set the auto record contact list in the new version. You can also adjust the recording length as well as the waiting period before auto recordings. Many users of Skype Recorder wants to know which is the best video encoder they can take on AthTek Skype Recorder. Actually it depends on your needs. Generally the higher recording quality means the larger recording file size. We select a quality video encoder for you and it can meet your needs in most of time. The recording quality of XVID is good and the file size of it is not so big. If you want to compare it with more video encoders, please visit the video encoder list. Removed some useless buttons and text contents in the new version. It boosts the user experience to higher level.
