Finally, I have recorded a conversation with the Skype Lady on my Dell XPS desktop. I am not going to make you read all the details, but this is what I have received from Dell so I can have the "stereo mix" choice under the recording options.
Since so far we have not had much luck talking, I will send you a little
information and a link that MAY help with your problem.
First-Dell has elected not to include the options you are looking for,
and as best I can tell it is for copyright reasons (Direct recording
from the WEB-example). This is not an official reason.
Now, a solution may be found at the following WEB link:
This file should be the best
If that does not work then----5.10.5208_XP32_XP64_MCE_2K_STACGUI.EXE
The highlighted file was the one that allowed me success. However, neither file solved the same issue on my Dell Latitude D520 laptop.
I am really hoping this nice man at Dell is going to find the answer for my laptop. At the same time, if what he says is true, I think other options for recording both sides of a Skype call will have to be aquired.
My next step is streaming- I know I am way behind the rest of you....but I will get there :)
