Report an issue with MP3 Skype Recorder v 4.4

Please report any issues with MP3 Skype Recorder v.4.4 in this topic
If you have any problem please post below. Please indicate your OS and Skype version. 


No v4.11 for Win7 non-admin users.
MP3SkypeRecorder v4.11, Skype   Win7Pro 64bit with latest MS updates
I was running v4.6 and downloaded the 4.11 .msi and executed it under the Administrator user on our PC.  Under admin user, I see the new version starts automatically.  But the individual users (non-admin) still see the 4.6 version.  They cannot upgrade since they are not admin users.  On the UI the "Update" button is showing in red, and doesn't do anything - no action.  Also, I tried running the installer twice, but same problem.

The 4.6 version still seems to work fine.  It records okay, but for example the "Report Problem" is not showing on the UI. 

I was trying to record a podcast through skype using the skype recorder. The problem became that when I went to edit the podcast itself, the audio (and it was only an audio recording) cut off at 47 minutes and a handful of seconds, omitting nearly 45 minutes of audio that takes place afterwards. 
At first, I thought it was a strange limitation. But then I remember I've done recordings with this program before that were nearly 3 hours and had no issues like this. No calls were on hold or disconnected, save for one point early in the recording, which was recorded over with no issue. 
This is massively disappointing because not only do I not have a podcast to put up, but I've wasted a good chunk of other people's time to record audio I can no longer use.

Hi! I am using 4.6 actually and the files I am generating from Skype are unreadable - file name:
The file extension is .mp3.id3tag
What is the problem? I especially interested in saving my file. It's very important for me.


 I am having the same issue and am not able to listen to the recording either.  I would like to know how to fix this too.

Skype v.
OS Windows 7 sp1
MP3 Skype recorder v.4.6 

App records only me when I try to use it with my USB headset.
It records no one when I use it with notebook built-in dynamics and mic.
I tried to switch mode to mono and stereo - no difference.

Sound volume becomes less when recording  starts and app pop-up appears.



Playbacks are overlapping half way through. I usually record up to two hours but notice it'll have me and my partner speaking at the same time .

Have I done something wrong?

Thanks you, this is really a nice software utility for skype users.

Hi there,

I have an HP Envy notebook. I have recently downloaded the recorder and used it to record and important call for work. The call had recorded and now i am unable to locate it on my laptop. I opened it using Microsoft windows. how do i locate the file as the conversation was pivotal for finishing completing my thesis. Do the recordings save automatically? and if so where would they be saved to?


Error report on v4.5

When the call ends and the information window for MP3Recorder pops up above the systray, it removes the focus from the window that I may be actively typing into (eg. Typing in Skype to wrap up/confirm in writing what was discussed in the call.)

When the MP3Recorder notification at end of call pops up, allow the popup to be seen but please leave the focus on the active window not the popup.

The popup window on this version of MP3Recorder is much larger and more intrusive than the previous v3.x vesion I was using, both the type of content and the window size.


For version 4.5

Recorder crashes and stops recording, if other party put call on hold.

This is an error report on MP3 Recorder v4.5.

Windows 7/64 bit

While recording a Skype Out call, when you get another inbound chat message, the recording stops and there is no way to restart it. I tried exiting the program and restarting it, but the recording function would not start again even though I was in the call. I attempted this at least three times and always with the same result - the recording function would not re-start.

A nice feature would be a manual recording start function. Right now, the system seems to have an auto-start only. A manual start would (might) have fixed my issue as noted above.

The recorder works fine with my USB webcam as the mic.  However I'm trying to use a bluetooth planronics headset.  The call in skype is fine, but mp3 recorder seems to hang and never completely create the file.  In the folder I'm left with a 0 byte MP3 and an id3tag file that never goes away.

Are there problems using this with bluetooth devices?
