This morning, I was chatting with my friends in ooVoo and planned to save the video call in order to memorize the cherished moment. But when I used the built-in ooVoo recorder to record, it suddenly crashed. What’s worse, the recording file cannot be found. What’s wrong with it? Anyone can help me? BTW, is there a good recorder that can record ooVoo video chat with decent quality? Thanks in advance.

I am sorry to hear that. Regarding your case, it could be that the original file had been destroyed when recording. So I am afraid it’s not easy to find the original file.
As far as I’m concerned, ooVoo is a free video chat and instant messaging tool that lets users chat with up to twelve people on computer, mobile, tablets anytime anywhere. Therefore, tens of thousands of people tend to choose ooVoo to contact online, conduct video conference, show web presentations, give remote training classes etc. Meanwhile, majority of people have an idea of recording ooVoo chat video. But the problem with making it bother lots of users. By reading the following parts, I bet you will eliminate your frustrations and find the answers easily.
Three Ways to Save ooVoo Video Chat with Decent Quality
Way 1: ooVoo built-in recorder
ooVoo, the largest independent group video-chat provider, also enables users to record the video chat with its built-in recorder. Getting started with ooVoo is pretty easy and it’s much easier to record the video chat.
Once open up ooVoo, start a video chat with friends. Please make sure your speakers, webcam, and microphone work properly. Then click “Record” under “Actions” tab. It will start to record your video call immediately. This time, a message will appear to let your friends know that the call is being recorded.
Some users complain a lot that ooVoo brought them inconvenience. Sometimes they just want to record ooVoo video call and make a surprise video for their friends, unfortunately, the message alerted break up this special surprise. Under this kind of circumstance, you’d better choose a good standalone screen recorder instead of a built-in one.
Way 2: Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder for Windows
Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder is a robust screen recording tool that enables users to record any screen activity on the computer screen. It is a web-based application that won’t take up the disk space. If you want to record ooVoo chat call, all you need to do is to launch this online application and with several clicks, you are able to save the chat video with high quality. You can following the steps below to make it happen.
- 1. Once you enter the page of Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder, click “Start Recording” and the UI windows will pop up after initialization.
- 2. Preset the audio input source according to your demands. You are capable of selecting from “System Sound”, “Microphone” and “System Sound and Microphone”.
- 3. Choose one recording mode and tap “Record” button to record your ooVoo. After counting down 3, 2, 1, it will record the target area automatically.
After recording, you have the choice to convert the default “.WMV” video file to other popular formats. But if you want to trim or crop your recording video, I am afraid you’d better use its Pro version. Apowersoft Screen Recorder Pro offers the ability of converting videos in batch at high speed. Additionally, it allows you to merge videos into one and edit videos like trimming, cropping, adding subtitles or effects and so on.
Way 3: Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder for Mac
