Free Video Call Recorder for Skype review - record video and audio of Skype calls
Free Video Call Recorder for Skype is a simple yet effective utility that makes it easy to record both audio and video Skype calls. Here's our Free Video Call Recorder for Skype review.
Skype has become so popular since its launch in 2003, it's accumulated more than 700 million registered users. One of the biggest advantages on Skype, aside from the free calling, easy video conversations and services like SkypeOut and SkypeIn, is how easy it is to record conversations. But most Skype recorders aren't free, or they're limited in some way. Free Video Call Recorder for Skype (download here)might have an uninspired name, but it claims to be completely free and unlimited in any way. See also: How to record Skype calls.
According to the vendor's website, Free Video Call Recorder (or FVCR) is "the first free Skype video call recorder in the world for recording Skype calls without any limitations." That's quite a claim for DVDVideoSoft to make, but it does seem that most recorders either cost money, record only audio, or are limited in some other way. But is it really without any limitations?

FVCR is a simple, lightweight program that comes with three different settings: Record all sides (picture-in-picture), Record other side only, and Record audio only. Upon my very first try with the first setting, I already encountered a slight limitation: You cannot record video at all if the other side didn't turn video on. This means there's no way to record your own video with the audio conversation, but I guess that makes some sense--chances are you don't want a recording of your own video. You can, however, click the record button when video is off, and it will automatically start recording when it's turned on.
