Ecamm is a familiar name to most podcasters. The company’s $29 Call Recorder for Skype allows for easy capture of both local and remote sides of a Skype call, making it easy to get a show out the door quickly.
Late this week, the company released a similar tool for FaceTime.
The app allows you to convert a call to an .mp3 and will capture HD video if you’re on a FaceTime call that’s more than just audio.
Call Recorder will also record regular phone calls that have been handed off to a Yosemite-running Mac, which is a feature well worth its own application in my opinion.
While FaceTime still isn’t a Skype killer for podcasts like mine with more than two people — and Apple’s audio compression still sounds weird to my ear — Ecamm just gave two-host shows an alternative to the beast that is Skype.
