Yea, A Solution for my Dell XPS Desktop

Finally, I have recorded a conversation with the Skype Lady on my Dell XPS desktop.  I am not going to make you read all the details, but this is what I have received from Dell so I can have the "stereo mix" choice under the recording options. 

I Had to Cheat

     Just want to let you know that my unsuccessful journey down the road of webcasting, has left me only one option… to cheat.  I’ll remind you, I am the person without a stereo mix option on either my home computer or my school laptop – both Dell.  I originally called tech support but hung up frustrated.  While attending the NCETC I looked up the Dell rep to pl

My first telephony recording...

... happened during this evening's webcast academy weekly meeting. I thought it had happened last Thursday but when I listened to the playback I found that the flat level of noise was not me being recorded quietly but was in fact noisy silence.

However over the last week I have made progress in eliminating echo on Skype by dividing the job of recording and playback between my USB soundcard and my internal soundcard.

And this evening I managed to make a recording. The attached file is not coherent as it consists of three test slices of the meeting and I have not edited it at all. I notice that the sound levels are very variable. I was controlling sound levels through Audacity but the recording would need more manipulation to level them out  even further if I were publishing this.

Broadcasting Live from Christa McAulliffe, Nashua NH.

This show is a shorter version of Women of Web 2.0.

Thanks to Maria Knee, Bob Sprankle, Alice Barr and Ed Trouble Latham. Cheryl Oakes recorded and mixed.

Thanks to Derek Miller for his music Meltdown Man.

 

One baby step

I at least have a quick recording of the SkypeLady and me. Just used Pamela - but at least it is a very minor baby step. It is just a simple mono recording. Now, onward.

I am over my head

I have just finished reading all the new blog posts. I still haven't even got the Skype lady recorded. I think I may be over my head for the time I have available. I am planning on sticking around and maybe I can find some open slots to work on this. I will continue to read what is happening with this very creative group. Keep up the good work everyone. Hope to post a success next time And I planned on joining the Webheads in January. Sure hope stuff slows down at work and home.

Recording Skype on Mac OS X :: Thank You Kathy

Thank you Kathy for recommending Audio Hijack Pro. I have recorded a conversation with the Skype Lady. She is so fine, always available when we need here. If you are still having problems with recording Skype calls, stop fooling around and get Audio Hijack Pro. The free download works just fine. You only have to pay when you want to record more than 10 minutes. So there's lot's of functionality before paying for the product. I'm going to try out more features before I purchase, but hey, it works without any fuss. Well....when I first clicked on Skype >Record it said I needed to download additional software, but that took a second and I was off and running after rebooting Skype.
