It will record your video call using Side-by-side – portrait mode. The recorded video file will be stored on the Skype server and you can download it at any time.

The Skype build-in free Skype call recorder feature is already much more powerful than most third-party Skype recording software on the market, and most third-party Skype recording software is screen recording software. And most third-party recording software doesn’t offer an option for video recording mode. So you can use Skype’s built-in free call recording feature if you don’t need another recording mode.

For more selectable video recording modes,  you need third-party Skype recording software, such as Evaer, Super tintin.  They offer a variety of video recording modes, such as picture-in-picture, side-by-side (landscape ,portrait), separate video files, audio-only, local-webcam-only and remote-webcam-only mode.

The Evaer Skype recorder is the best one for recording Skype video calls, it supports all Skype versions under Windows. You can preview the recording results while recording the Skype video call, and you can control the recorded video channel in real time.

Webcam Diagnostics

Webcam Diagnostics is a simple assistant which gathers many system and webcam-related information in a single place. It makes it easy to identify driver installation problems or USB issues: red circles will signal serious issues and yellow triangles will signal minor issues. Right-click a reported issue to access the context menu and click the Fix menu (if available) so that the program attempts to fix the issue or shows you a possible way to fix it.

Webcam Diagnostics can report USB issues like overcurrent or bandwidth shortage. It can also tell whether your system is correctly configured to handle a webcam (e.g. processor fast enough, recent DirectX runtime, optimal display color depth, etc.)
