How do I record a full-screen video while talking to a mobile device using Skype?

Under the default configuration, Evaer call recorder for Skype will automatically adjust the aspect ratio of the video when the aspect ratio of the two sides is different.

If a mobile device is used by a Skype contact that you are talking to,  the Skype call recorder will automatically adjust (cut) The video aspect ratio when the video of the device is inconsistent with your video. This will get you the remote contact video with only the middle part of the image. If you want to get the same Skype video image as the original video, please disable the “Automatically adjusts the aspect ratio of the video images” option at Evaer call recorder for Skype software menu Tools > Options > Advanced tab.

How to get best audio quality while recording Skype calls ?

It will sometimes create an echoing effect when you recording Skype calls without headset. So, we have build in the echo cancellation feature at Evaer call recorder for Skype.

By default, the echo cancellation feature is auto-adaptive because the distance of the near-end’s speaker and microphone are generally not known in advance. The acoustical attributes of the near-end’s room are also not generally known in advance, and may change (e.g. if people walk around the room causing changes in the acoustic reflections).

However, the initial echo delay estimation will greatly affect the echo cancellation effect.  So, we added the option to adjust the initial echo delay estimation time at Evaer Advanced settings.  That you can change the delay estimation time to get best Skype audio recording quality using Evaer recorder for Skype.
