Ecamm is the creator of products that are helpful for podcasters that use Macs. I’ve used Ecamm’s Call Recorder for Skype for years, and highly recommend it. I find it to be a useful backup just in case my recording (or the recording done by a co-host) crashes and is lost forever. I’ve also used it to record podcasts with people who do not know how to record their own audio.
Now, Ecamm is introducing something new – Ecamm Live.
Ecamm Live puts the power of Facebook Live at your fingertips. You can try it for free. It requires MacOS 10.11 or newer. You can purchase Ecamm Live for $29.95 (and it comes with free lifetime updates).
Ecamm Live allows podcasters to stream in HD quality with one click, using any connected mic and capture device. You can even switch between cameras during a broadcast. It has seamless Facebook integration, which means there is no need to worry about stream keys or complicated set-up steps. The app takes care of it all.
Once you’re live, you will be able to see the audience size, Facebook comments, and reactions right in Ecamm Live. Ecamm makes it easy for you to add text and graphics such as a company logo to your livestream. Simply type a title or drag an image into place. Ecamm Live even supports animated GIF overlays.
Ecamm Live is for streaming high-quality live video. But you can also use it to broadcast a video file that has been pre-recorded. Just drag the file into the app.
In addition, Ecamm can be used to Livestream your presentations, tutorials, demos and gameplay with one click. You can add a live picture-in-picture to the broadcast for a personal touch. I can see where this feature would make it easy for people who podcast about video games to include their gameplay right into the podcast – and broadcast it on Facebook Live.
With Call Recorder you get perfect recordings of your FaceTime chats, podcasts and interviews, side by side in crystal clear HD.
Feel like sharing? Convert your calls into MP3 files for podcasting or internet-ready movies for YouTube and Vimeo.
Doing some editing? Call Recorder lets you split the audio tracks after a call.
FaceTime Recorder also allows for recording of iPhone Handoff calls which is a nice addition to the software package.
FaceTime Recorder is available for download as a free trial. A license for the program can be purchased for $29.95. I haven’t used FaceTime Recorder yet but I can see how it could make for a valuable addition to any Mac-based podcaster’s toolkit. Visit the Ecamm website (linked above) or watch this video for more information on Call Recorder for FaceTime.
Skype is an essential item in any podcaster’s toolkit. And podcasters are always looking for ways to record and save the audio produced during a Skype call. Over the years, podcasters have relied on various hardware/software combinations and techniques to achieve this goal with some methods being more complex than others.
If you’re a podcaster using a Mac and you need a simple and reliable way to record Skype calls, take a look at Call Recorder by Ecamm. Call Recorder is an application that works directly with Skype to record audio or video calls. It also comes with a collection of extras that can be used to convert your Skype recording to other media formats.
Installation of Call Recorder is pretty straight forward. Just download the installer from the Ecamm website and run it like you would any other Mac software installer. Once it’s up and running, Call Recorder automatically launches when you run Skype.
