VodBurner: Record both sides of a Skype call2009-12-18
Netralia CEO Jeremy Hague and I chatted for a bit over Skype today while I recorded the call using VodBurner, Netralia’s latest product. It couldn’t be simpler to use. Just click the “record” button on VodBurner when you’re ready to start the recording, have your conversation, then hang up. A box appears to let you know the video recording has been saved; click the button in the box to launch the editor.
You can set the point at which the video switches to you, the person on the other end of the call, or the split screen that shows both of you. When you’re done, you can publish the video to the ASF format or upload it directly to YouTube. Jeremy tells me a lot more features are in the works, including multiple file formats, improved caption capabilities, and more. But right now, in its earliest iteration, it’s still a slick tool for sharing video. Neville Hobson, my co-host on For Immediate Release, and I are planning to give it a try for a five-minute (or so) discussion of the kind of topics we talk about on the podcast.
Here’s the video of my brief chat with Jeremy:
VodBurner is $9.95 per month—the first 30 days are free. You can use it without licensing it after the trail period ends, if you don’t mind a watermark in the middle of your videos. More great work from Jeremy and the Netralia team—I’m already a huge fan of CallBurner, for recording both ends of a Skype audio call.
