Skype is an excellent software that allows users to make free PC to PC calls or pc to mobile calls using the VOIP technology. You can also make free video calls using the skype software. But to record these skype video calls, third party software’s are needed and sadly most of them aren’t free. After a bit of googling I came across two freewares which can record skype videos. Check them below.
Skype Video Capture Freewares
1) Tapur : Tapur is a freeware which provides answering service and records voice & movie for Skype.
Features of Tapur
Conversation Recording for both voice and video calls.
Record incoming calls, outgoing calls or both
Record call by stereo or mono
Supported OS: Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 Server / Vista
The video recording is done by capturing screen of Windows. Therefore the state will be just recorded when the other application shut out the screen of Skype. Tapur locks the screen of Skype automatically on the front to avoid this while you record movie. You can cancel this lock in "Movie recording" tab of "Options" menu.
Other Utility which captures skype videos is Vodburner. Although you can capture videos for free, recordings made after the 30 day trial have a VodBurner watermark added to them. Since it has no time limits or other limitations.
