How to Record Skype Meetings on a PC

Microsoft has yet to give its nod to Skype for businesses to record videos on Mac. According to the company’s guidelines, recording on Mac using Skype has yet to be introduced. Therefore, if you want to record a Skype meeting on any computer, try a third-party tool – EaseUS RecExperts.

EaseUS RecExperts stands out as a professional screen and video recorder with excellent features. It records Skype meetings with a virtual background. You can replace the original meeting background with a classroom, studio, scenery, etc. Blurring the surroundings is also easy for it. It even offers an AI assistant to extract the meeting discussion as a text file. Scheduling recording tasks can let it record automatically.

Step 1. Go to the video meeting that you want to record and launch EaseUS RecExperts on your devices. Choose the “Full Screen”  recording mode to record the whole screen or the “Region” mode to record your customized area.


Step 2. Then, choose to record the system sound, microphone sound, webcam, or none by clicking on the according buttons. You can even record a webcam with an AI background. When all is done, click on the red “REC” button to begin.

How to Manage Recordings

Now that you have a screen recording of your Skype meeting, let us see how to manage and share it. Skype for Business Recording Manager can be accessed in two ways. Here you can operate on recorded videos and make them ready for publishing.

The first method is to access the recorded files from the Skype for Business main window. A menu appears if you press the downward arrow or drop-down symbol next to the gear icon (Settings).  Now, hover over the Tools and then select the Recording Manager.

Or a rather easy way, but it can only help if you are in a meeting. You can select More Options and select Manage Recordings right under the Start/Stop Recording.

How to Manage Recordings

In Skype for Business Recording Manager, you can preview/view the recording, rename it, delete it, browse the location, and publish it.

For sharing with other participants, you can use the publish button. Once you click the Publish button, a “Save and Publish Windows opens with options to name the file, select the location for saving, and options to choose what parts of the recording you want to include, like video, audio, messaging, and presentations. 

Now, when you feel everything is set, just press OK to save it and share it with the participants later.


Preserving a video to cherish or revisit it for some purpose is a great option, and Skype for Business allows you to record Skype meetings on Windows, but the feature is yet to come for Mac users.
