How to Record Skype Chats on Linux

Want to record Skype calls in Ubuntu? Skype call recorder is a simple easy to use program that can record Skype call automatically and manually as well. The Skype Call Recorder for Linux uses the native Skype API to record calls to wav, mp3, or ogg format. It runs in the system tray and communicates directly with the Skype process.
