VodBurner for Mac records Skype video and audio calls. To use it you will need Mac OSX 10.7 (Lion) or later. You don’t need to have Skype installed, but if it is, that is fine also.
Once you’ve installed and started VodBurner for Mac, just sign in with your existing Skype account. (If you don’t have a Skype account you will need to install Skype and use it to set up an account).
When you sign in for the first time there will be a short delay (around 30 seconds) while VodBurner initializes your settings.
After this will see your Skype contacts listed. To make a call, move the mouse over the contact so that the green call button appears, then click it to make a call. Alternatively, if someone calls you, you will see an “Answer” button.
Once the call is started you will see a video window showing you and the other party. Move the mouse over the video window to see the recording controls. Click the large record button at bottom center of the window to commence recording.
VodBurner will record the window exactly as you see it (except for the recording controls of course). You can control who appears, and where, by clicking the small cogwheel icon, and choosing the “Show>Layout” menu item. You can also control whether the video is zoomed or letterboxed by choosing “Show>Zoom”.
To finish recording, click the stop button, or click the red hang-up button to finish the call.
After the recording is stopped, you will see a triangular “play” button in the contact list, next to your contact. Click it to bring the recording up in the Mac Finder. Double-click the file in Finder to play it back in QuickTime or other default player.
You will notice that the recording is in MOV format. VodBurner can also create MP4 and M4V files (as well as M4A and WAV if you only wish to record audio). These options are available under the cogwheel icon mentioned above: under the Format submenu.
If you have any questions or issues, please contact VodBurner support.
