    I have a skype interview next week with a guy in Australia! What do you guys use to record skype calls that you can convert to video? I have done this before but can't remember what I used and the sound wasn't all that great!

    There is an abundance of simple screen recorder softwares such as Screencast-O-Matic or Camtasia. However, many of these have limitations unless you upgrade to pro accounts. If you want a slightly more complex but completely free and fully functional solution, take a look at Open Broadcaster Software.

    Alternatively, you could use Google Hangouts instead of Skype. With Google Hangouts, you can have a live chat session that automatically uploads to YouTube, and you can choose for this session to be private and have it saved under the private videos in your YouTube account.

    Hope this helps :)

    Apparently Evaer, Pamela and VodBurner are the popular programs to use.

    Thanks so much. I used Google Hangout and it was so easy. It did freeze up a few times, but it turned out pretty dang good! Love the fact that it put it on my youtube channel automatically!

    I never even thought about using screencast-o-matic and I do have the pro version. Duh!
