How to record Skype calls to MP3

Here is how you can record phone calls or PC-to-PC calls on your PC.

1. Follow these instructions to set up Skype if you don’t already use it.

2. If you only need to record PC-to-PC calls, skip this step. If you want to record calls made from your PC to standard phone lines you will need to purchase Skype Credit.
