Quick guide to using “Free Video Call Recorder for Skype,” a freeware program that enables picture-in-picture recording of Skype video calls.
Skype has long been the favored means of keeping in touch with family and friends in different cities, states, and even countries around the world for some time now. The VoIP service and software application allows people to bridge great distances and bring themselves a bit closer to the people they care about.
Many of these are important calls that take place on holidays like Christmas or Thanksgiving, while others are made during important milestones like birthdays and graduations. It is these kinds of video calls that people want to remember most, and yet recording them is an elusive task beyond the grasp of the average computer user.
