recording telephone conversations

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by harlemnocturn, Oct 13, 2008.

  1. My telephone service is Vonage, which does not have a solution. If I make
    WMP my default, can I use it to record my telephone calls (not messages)?

  2. Windows media player has no recording feature built in.

    Perhaps you meant an audio recording and editing program, such as
    Audacity ? http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    PS it's not obvious how you plan to record from Vonage, I thought that
    was a voice over IP service (though that's where my knowledge ends)

    Audacity can record from the stereo mix, internal to the sound card -
    which avoids having to plug a cable from the Line Out of the sound
    card back to the Line In socket :

    You can connect line out from your speakers to line in, and then
    record it with any recording software.
    But, be aware that it is illegal without permission of other
    participants in conversation.

    Thanks to all who responded to my initial post; however, I have been on the
    Audacity forum. Audacity is for editing, not recording. Many of these
    programs do not deliver the necessary volume.

  6. You weren't paying attention then. The link I provided to the Audacity
    FAQ covers recording from Line or Mixer. However you *still* haven't
    discussed what or how this audio is sourced, so we can't guess further

  7. In most states it is legal as long as one of the parties on the call knows
    the call is being recorded. Careful what you say bro'.

    Better check out what you are yapping about before you yap.
