Until I started looking for a free Skype recorder, I had no idea how hard it was to find one on either Windows or Mac.

SkypeCap isn't free (unless your recording is less than two minutes) but it does a pretty good job of ensuring that your Skype calls are recorded for posterity. Note that during installation, I was presented with an unspecified error. It didn't seem to hamper the performance of SkypeCap but doesn't exactly give a good first impression of the product.

Calls recorded in SkypeCap can be saved as MP3, WMA or AAC files; and video calls as Quicktime Movies (MOV), MPEG4, MPEG, VOB, PSP MPEG4, SWF and FLV. SkypeCap only kicks in when you initiate a Skype call (you'll have to allow SkypeCap to access Skype, which you'll be prompted to do when you start a call).

The recorder is very basic. There's a small equalizer to visualize sound levels and recording automatically starts and stops when your Skype call does. When the call ends, you're presented with the length of the call and a 'Save' dialog which also allows you to convert the recording into another format. Calls up to two minutes are recorded for free but anything beyond that you'll have to purchase a registration key.

SkypeCap is an easy-to-use and fully automatic Skype recorder, ideal for those that need recordings saved in multiple formats.
