MP3 Skype Recorder does not record at all.  It is set to begin at startup but it always says it's waiting for Skype, even when the conversation has already begun.  There have been numerous error reports sent, but to no avail.
 
 

im getting the same problem.......0kb records in mp3 format.....im using windows vista???
also where do i get a later release of your skype recorder....as i need 2 record asap

 
I installed new version today and got the same 0kb error on numerous files. I added program to my firewall exceptions and still recieved same errors.
I deleted program and reinstalled 72 and it worked right out of the gate.
 
I am on windows XP 2002 srvice Pack 2.

Hello
Thanks for reporting. Could you contact me mail(aatt)voipcallrecording.com please. The reason why

Please check if any personal firewall is preventing MP3 Skype Recorder from accessing Skype. This may cause 0kb records
Latest version MP3 Skype Recorder 1.8.4 is here
Previous version Skype Call Recorder 0.7.2. (I've renamed the program) is here

here is my feedback:
it works with the older version Skype Call Recorder 0.7.2. - windows firewall asked my to allow access for the older version, but not for the 1.8.4 - i reinstalled the 1.8.4 and checked the ports and sercurity setting, everything ok, means that even though windows firewall knows and allows the recorder to access, it doesnt work as it did with the older version for which i had explicidly allow the access (pop up from windows). so, ill use the 0.7.2. version (link above). thx and good luck ;)

Thank you for feedback
Working on this, making debugging version of MP3 Skype Recorder. Unfortunately I  can't get this error on my systems, thus to debug properly. Will need somebody with this bug to install and running this new version and send me a log file.
If anybody is having this problem and willing to help to trace the bug please contact me mail(aatt)voipcallrecording.com

Ive the latest Skype and Recorder Version, Ill try the previous recorder version now...
firewall allows the recorder to access skype.
Ill give u feedback

Thanks.

how can i get rid of the 0kb records in mp3 format? cant see the reason 4 this...

I'm really grateful for all the work that you've put into this tool. However, this 0kb file problem is really, really bad. If you have the previous version installed, it suggest that you upgrade. If you do, you stand a decent chance of being unable to record anything.
After losing about 45 minutes of work because of this issue, and delaying a podcast interview I had scheduled, I'd suggest doing something to limit the distribution of v1.8.4 until you solve the problem.

I am working on it. I can't reproduce this bug on my testing systems, thus t is hard to find it. Could you specify the system you are using (XP or Vista? 32 or 64 bit?) and the versions of Skype and MP3 Skype Record
Are all records 0kb? or maybe only the first after start? or randomly?

I tried to record 10 times - all records are 0kbs, not matter what config I use (32 - 64 bit/ automatic start on/off)...I restarted my system (XP), checked my firewall and reinstalled it 2 times, it wont work on my system...sorry
VLC player says: unable to open file: C:\ and so on...

I'm having the same problem on every recording.

Skype 4.0.0.227
Skype Recorder 1.8.4

Do you have any personal firewall installed, like Norton Protection Center? If yes, then it should ask you to allow MP3 Skype Recorder to listen local port. Probably you just clicked not allow, when it asked, so MP3 Skype Recorder could not listen to Skype.

Hi
Firstly update the Skype, you are not using the latest version and there are few bugs reported in version 4.0.0.227.
If it doesn't help, uninstall MP3 Skype Recorder and try previous version of recorder

I have installed the latest version 1.8.4.1 and it corrects the issues I was having with install and manual startup. Thank you!
But I still have not been able to figure out how to get rid of the pops in my recordings. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Here is a link to a test file that demonstrates the problem I'm having:

Thank you for your help!
 

I'm not getting an authentication request from skype and therefore, can't use Skype Recorder.

You can do authentication manually as described here
Skype->
Tools->
Options->
Advanced->
Manage other's program access to Skype->
Choose MP3 Skype Recorder from the list->
click Change ->
Change to Allow this program... ->
Confirm by clicking OK

It didn't show up in the list, so I couldn't authenticate it.  Skype recognized it after I restarted though, so it's working now.
