    Thanks a lot for sharing this, after more than 12 hours of struggling, your blog post proved invaluable.

    I was struggling with recording skype. And Camtasia proved to be the perfect solution.

    One additional point on windows, you don’t need any extra plugins, camtasia allows you to capture the audio from the system itself. Works brilliantly, and is far superior to the crappy skype third party recording tools, which have extremely low fidelity and too many issues.

    Thank you once again 🙂

    That’s great!

    Camtasia does provide the plugin for the Mac OS, but it doesn’t install it until you try to record system sound. It’s an extra step, but totally aided.

    Thanks for letting us know that this post helped out Sanjay!

    Thank you for sharing such a detailed video, none of this information is even on the Camtasia forum!
