There is no connect to Skype button in the application interface, no option “Always start recording when call starts” and “Reduce black borders”. Callnote record widget appears once you start or answer a Skype call. So, please do not forget to press the record button to start recording.
If you’re still having problems connecting Callnote to Skype, you may want to disable any antivirus software or firewalls on your desktop. Some security programs are configured to block Callnote, so this should resolve the problem.
Check your mac settings (System Preferences -> Security&Privacy). Callnote should have access to:

If you don’t have it and your mac didn’t ask for permission, go to Callnote recording options tab -> Skype and select #Record video and #Always start recording. Then Open Skype and do Skype call testing service call. This should initiate a request.
Callnote is a free application and records all sounds through your mic, which may cause the echo. The only way to avoid this is to isolate the mic from multiple sounds. Using a headset with a built-in mic will help.
Callnote runs on Windows and Mac OS. Please note that Callnote is not compatible with mobile devices (tablets and smartphones).
Callnote Pro records videos with 1280×720 (16:9) resolution with HQ recording function on, while with Premium or free version you can get 800×450.
Please use the Directory button next to the recording item in Callnote Library to find all the recordings saved on your computer.
Windows users should check the My Documents folder, more specifically Windows XP/Vista/7: %USERS%/%USERNAME%/My Documents/Callnote or Computer/Documents.
For Mac users, the default folder for storing the recordings is /Users /%USERNAME%/Callnote. Recordings may also be found in the directory shown in the Options tab (see Save Recordings in the Folder).
Callnote allows you to record up to eight participants.
There is no space limit in the library, but you should verify that there is enough space on your system disk for storing new recordings. Please also note the Premium version is limited to thirty recordings per month.
Callnote does not make backup copies of the recordings and cannot recover the files, but we recommend that you look for them in the default directory C:Users\User\Documents\Callnote\Records.
Please make sure you set up forwarding correctly. Please refer to this blog post for detailed instructions.
If the connection to Skype is lost
When Callnote loses the connection to Skype (in this case, the issue with the Internet connection), you must manually stop the recording and made a new one when the connection is made again.
This issue is a common one when the call is recorded without a headset. Please use a USB headset with a built-in mic to solve this issue.
