Introduction

Does it happen that you want to record a sound that plays on your system -- maybe a Skype conversation, or something off YouTube. Or maybe you just want to record something from a streaming radio, live podcast, or even a webcast that you are delivering.

It's easy to do this with liteRecorder, our review product.

Remember that some of these activities may or may not be kosher -- for instance it is a good idea to tell the person on the other end of the Skype phone that you are recording the conversation!

Conclusion

liteRecorder is a simple application that opens up many possibilities -- the price is right too.

liteRecorder is also available as a "green version" that retails for $1 more -- innoheim donates a certain percentage of the profit to WWF to save polar bears and Arctic ecosystems. Based on their sales, innoheim has already adopted 2 bears since the program’s launch in 2007.
