I have received numerous messages from people concerning the new version of Skype for Linux. This new version seems to be a complete overhaul and from what I hear from users, it does not work with Skype Call Recorder anymore. The most likely reason for this is that Skype completely ditched the old API that SCR was using (which I can honestly not blame them for: the API wasn’t exactly great). Chances are that they don’t even offer a similar API anymore in the new version of Skype, or if they do, it would most likely require a major rewrite of SCR to make it work again. The later is currently out of question for me, because… real life and stuff.
I understand that this is hugely disappointing for many (including me), especially given that Skype decided to deprecate the old version starting July 2017. It will probably not even be able to connect to the Skype network anymore. Unfortunately there’s not much I can do about this at the moment. If anyone feels like checking whether or not there is a new API, whether or not any of the existing SCR code would still be usable, then be my guest and share your insights in a comment or even better over at Github.
I’m sorry for this inconvenience and wish to thank everyone for using this software and also for all the great feedback I received over these years!
