Skype Recorder (formerly MSN Webcam Recorder) is a program that allows you to record video-conferencing sessions by webcam that are made through instant messaging programs such as Skype, but also old MSN, ICQ, AIM and Yahoo Messenger.
It also allows you to capture streamings, videos, or whatever happens on the desktop, so it can be useful for recording tutorials, or demonstrations of software.
This application allows you to capture the full screen, a window or a region delimited by the user through the mouse cursor. The usual recording, pause and stop controls are available.
The video obtained can be recorded in WMV format, and there are no options for other types of formats. It is possible to define the degree of compression of the video, according to the best or worst quality you want to have.
Skype Webcam Recorder 14 is the latest version (updated December 2013) of this software. This is a trial version that can be evaluated over a period of 30 days, and then have the possibility to acquire a license.
