Call Recorder May Continue To Work! (00:01:12)
In last week’s episode, I shared that Pamela, a software that is made to record Skype conversations on the PC, is no longer going to work after December of this year. I had read, from a support page on their site, that when Skype removes their desktop API, it would break all of the other software plugins made for recording Skype Calls. From this, I made the assumption that this meant that Call Recorder would be affected.

Special thanks to Christopher Wright and Ryan Jacobi who each gave me evidence that ECAMM’s support department and development engineers are confident that the removal of the desktop API will not impact their software. In fact, they went so far as to say that their software worked for recording Skype calls before Skype ever made the desktop API available. This is good news for podcasters on the Mac Platform who have come to rely on Call Recorder for recording their Skype calls.

Should I Upgrade My Equipment Or Go To NMX? (00:13:49)
Jeff called in to say that he has saved up enough money to either attend New Media Expo or spend that amount of money on upgrading the equipment for his podcast. He wanted to know which I would suggest that he choose. Listen to this episode to find out why I suggested that he sign up and attend New Media Expo.

 
 
How Can I Get My Archives of Content Onto Libsyn? (00:19:10)
Ken called in to say that he is thinking about moving away from the free hosting at archive.org and moving his previous content over to Libsyn. He wanted to know if there was a way to upload all those previous episodes since the total of all previous uploads would be more than the monthly allotment upload space. I shared that, for an initial opened account, you can import your “back catalogue” for .05 per MB.
