I am going to be joining a couple of Skype sessions and I would like to record just the screen and incoming audio. Is there an screen recorder for Skype that can record incoming audio but not outgoing audio?

I would like this to be available for Windows and/or Linux operating systems.

  • By out going audio, you mean what your mic is picking up for the call, right? Jul 19, 2015 at 17:50
  • I'm not sure if this program has an option to filter out outgoing audio.

  • Live RTMP streaming to Twitch, YouTube, DailyMotion, Hitbox and more.
  • File output to MP4 or FLV.
  • GPU-based game capture for high performance game streaming.
  • DirectShow capture device support (webcams, capture cards, etc).
  • Windows 8 high speed monitor capture support.
  • Bilinear or lanczos3 resampling.

You can use a WebCam Recorder, installation and use of this program makes it one the favorites because it allow the use to record high quality videos, crystal clear voice recording and a very powerful and useful video and audio converter How to use it?

  1. Just click on “record”
  2. Choose an option for your recording:

    a. Just audio: export the call and saves it in MP3 format

    b. Picture in picture: normal skype call

    c. Side by side; your image next to the other person’s

    d. Webcam local: records everything that happens in your pc

    e. Remote web cam: records the other person

    f. Separate archives: record video and audio separate files

  3. That’s it, now you can record as many conversation as you like

Hope it works for you :D
