  1. This is a good idea. It may be good for those who also want to record videos for quick tutorials or webinars. What do you think?

  2. I always use the AceThinker Screen Grabber Pro to record Skype conference calls for free. It is great for recording video calls in HD quality. It can also record audio in system sound, microphone, or both to record. It is perfect when you want to record your conference call with your boss and review the discussion over and over again.

  3. I sometimes worry that whether free products would cause stuttering playbacks easily, which is absolutely inconvenience when it comes to online conference recording. So I choose Joyoshare Screen Recorder after deliberation. It can record videos in high quality smoothly with system audio and/or microphone. Though it’s not totally free, it’s cost-effective, as it can do more than record Skype video calls. Share it here for those who may have the same worry as me.
