How to record Skype calls on a Mac using Movavi Screen Recorder
Step 1. Install Movavi Screen Recorder
First, download and install the Movavi Skype recorder by following the onscreen instructions.
Step 2. Set the recording parameters
Run Skype and launch the software for Skype video recording. Click Screen recording on the tab in the right part of your screen. Hover the mouse cursor over the Skype window you want to capture, then click on it once. You can also change the target area later.
Make sure the System Audio and Microphone icons are highlighted in green – this indicates that the program will record sound from your input and output audio devices – both your voice and that of the other party. Then expand the menu above the Microphone icon and select the appropriate device for recording.
Step 3. Record your Skype meeting on your Mac
Hit the REC button in the Screen Recorder interface to start recording your call. If you want to pause the capture at any time, press ⌥ ⌘ 1 on your keyboard. To stop the capture, press ⌥ ⌘ 2. To manage Skype video calls recording on your Mac, you can also use the buttons in the call recorder control panel.
When the recording stops, your Skype call video will be automatically saved in MKV format to the default folder on your hard drive and open in a preview window. If you want to delete any unwanted footage or convert the recording to a different format, go to the next step.
Step 4. Cut and convert your recording (optional)
If there are any unwanted segments in your recording, you can remove them easily. First, position the marker on the timeline at the beginning of the unwanted segment and click the Scissors button, then do the same to mark the end of the segment. Now select the isolated segment on the timeline and hit the Trash Can icon. To save all changes and convert the video, click Export.
Select one of the formats listed at the top of the new export window. You can choose from a lot of format options, including MP4, AVI, MOV, MP3, and more. After selecting the required format, just click the Save button; your video will be ready for viewing in no time! Now you know how easy the process of Skype recording on Mac can be!
