We just released version 126.96.36.199 version of Call Graph, the free Skype call recording application. To upgrade, please right click on the Call Graph task bar icon and choose ‘Check for updates’. Here’s a brief description of the changes that went into it.
Sometimes during initialization Call Graph used to give an fatal error and abort. It used to happen when the call recording directory was removed. Call Graph stores the indexes in that directory, without which it cannot startup. So if you delete or move this directory, it used to give this fatal error. We have partly fixed this problem by recreating the directory again if it does not exist. We’ll be working more on it in our future releases.
Another change was that upload complete notification is not shown anymore if you have disabled notifications. This was a bug we introduced in the previous release. Thanks to one of our users for pointing it out.
The display duration of the sliding window notification has been increased to 10 seconds from 5. Several of our users had mentioned that it disappears too fast. Let us know if this is good enough. If not we’ll increase it further. Or introduce a configuration option for it.
A new feature was also added: Echo Cancellation. Several of our users have complained of a large echo in their calls and recordings when they use the in built mic and speaker (on laptops) or some other device. So we have added an echo canceler in Call Graph. You can read up more about Acoustic Echo Cancellation on Wikipidea. This feature is turned off by default and is accessible from the ‘Advanced’ tab of the configuration dialog.
Its an experimental feature right now. Might work on some machines and not in others. Software echo cancellation is not perfect solution. Its better to have hardware echo cancellation if you have it on your PC. Check the settings on your audio driver for that. It also CPU intensive task and and an additional processing step. Depending upon your PC configuration you might get varied results. We’ll keep on testing and improving it in future releases.
We’d suggest that you use a headset for high quality recordings. It keeps the noise down to the minimum and produces very good results.
Please update your client and keep the feedback coming.
