Instant Messaging & Video Conference Recording

  Dellman 15:37 26 Apr 2005

Is it possible to record video images/sound that is sent/viewed via an Instant Messaging video conferencing facility eg MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger? Is any special software or hardware required? And can they then be played back?

The Polderbits is only a "sound" soultion, if I have read it right. The Soniclear costs between US$150 - 999!!!!! Not sure how much the Cisco option costs.

Anyone got anymore ideas/suggestions?

Hi, if you have a tv card in your pc, connected through a vcr/tv, it is possible to record direct to VHS.

MSN Messenger does allow saving a history of conversations, from within Tools/Options.

Thanx Technotiger. However, it is more the video/audio aspect that I'm trying to capture within IM/Yahoo Messenger.

You asked whether it was possible to record video/audio conversations/conferences - the links merely proved that it is possible.

Thanx Stuartli. I was hoping there might be a cheaper option.

Anymore views from anyone?
