Recording Skype calls in Linux

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I use Skype quite a bit. Not only to call family, friends, and clients, but also to record interviews and the occasional podcast. The recording part I had to do under Windows. While I’ve found quite a bit of advice on recording Skype calls in Linux, none of the solutions has ever worked for me.

A couple of weeks ago, though, I came across SCX Tools, which are described as “set of Linux utilities for Skype. All the utilities work as addons for the Skype client communicating with Skype using public Skype protocol.” While only the call recorder — called SCX Recorder — is currently available, SCX Tools looks quite promising.
