That being said, I would love to see an additional button on the Recording Control Panel to quickly switch between basically two default settings specified in the preferences, one for audio and one for video, with a very noticable icon for each to prevent mistakes.

I often call landline phones abroad and it's a pain to have to constantly go to the preferences to change the settings, only to forget and end up next time recording audio only a video conversation with a friend.

Makes heavy usage of CPU when using Skype if installed, even if recording is off.

I hope this thing issues periodic beeps when recording Skype calls. Isn't it against the law to record phone calls without informing the other person that you're doing it?

The legality of recording calls varies from state to state. Here in CO, only one person has to consent to the call being recorded, it's assumed that the person recording the call consents.

I love this little app. It has made my work as a journalist much easier, as I conduct many phonecalls with Skype. Now it has become a no-brainer to record calls from Skype. One of the best pieces of software I've ever bought.

Gizmo Project, VOIP software...downloadable from Macupdate...has a built-in record function. Quality is better than Skype in personal testing.

Good idé.
Handy.

Caution to the users though:
Recording a conversation can be illegal,
so check before using it, if you are unsure.

How can recording a conversation that I personally am partaking in be illegal?

Where would I locate more info on this task?

It can vary from country/county to country/county. It can be OK, but in some places it would be a violation of the law. Check on the net or with the citizens info bureau or similar. Better safe then sorry.

Recording someone else without their permission can be considered an invasion of privacy, hence, some states, but not all, have sided with those who feel invaded in passing their anti-recording laws. The states which do allow recording without legal ramifications when only one party of the conversation agrees to be recorded are appropriately called "one-party" states. The recorder does not even have to notify the other party that she is being recorded, although businesses will routinely do so out of courtesy and to cover their ass, just in case some ignorant trouble-maker gets offended and uppity.

A Google search of telephone recording laws will reveal all. It's not that hard to locate more info.

Setting up a phone recording system is also not that difficult. It can be done with a simple tape recorder connected to your handset with a Radio Shack converter on the hardware side, associated with good Mac recording software. Programs like Sound Studio, Audio Hijack, maybe Audacity, and any number of inexpensive, one-trick ponies designed to capture "any" sound that comes into your Mac is all your need. You could even go higher end and use a dongle to capture the sound and process it well-designed logs.

Maybe even this software could do a good job. That you have to find out.

You do not really need to depend on Skype to capture the audio, although it's always nice to have several options to choose from.
