Many people have started to use Skype regularly for day to day video calls – both for personal and business purposes. As much as Skype is a great video calling platform, it does have one drawback compared to emails or even instant messaging – as there is no historical record of the contents of your calls. In short, if you want to refer back to something that was discussed during a Skype call, you won’t be able to do so.
The way to get around this is to record your Skype calls. To do that, you need to use Movavi Screen Capture Studio and capture the Skype calls while they’re ongoing so that you can subsequently save them onto your hard drive.
If it is your first time attempting to use Skype screen capture, here’s all you need to do:
- Launch Movavi Screen Capture Studio and select ‘Capture Screen’ from the main menu.
- Locate the yellow frame (i.e. the capture frame) and resize and reposition it so that it encompasses the Skype conversation that you want to record.
- Check that the ‘System Audio’ icon has a green tick on it, and click it once to tick it if it does not.
- Click ‘REC’ to start the recording as the Skype conversation begins.
- Click ‘Stop’ to stop the recording when it is over, and ‘Save’ to save it onto your hard drive.
Rather than saving your Skype call immediately, you may want to use some of the other features in Movavi Screen Capture Studio as well. In particular, you could trim out any unwanted segments of video that were inadvertently recorded, enhance the overall quality, and even combine several videos together if need be.
On top of that if you want to get creative you could use Movavi Screen Capture Studio to add new audio tracks, insert customizable text, play around with special effects and filters, and much more too. Assuming you’re looking to produce a video using some footage that was recorded from a Skype call, these features will help you to make sure that it looks attractive, polished and professional.
Because Movavi Screen Capture Studio is so easy to use, becoming familiar with all of its features shouldn’t take you too long. At most it will be a couple of minutes to figure out each one, and once you do start to experiment with the features you’ll begin to see just how simple it is to record practically anything you need from your screen and turn it into a great-looking video.
