I agree that is it doubtful whether you will succeed in recording with Audacity when using Skype with an internal sound card. I am using a usb mixer (Allen & Heath ZED-10) and, with it, I can do it.

There are some programs made specifically for recording Skype and such. One is mx skype Recorder. While not limited to recording Skype calls, Total Recorder <http://www.skyperec.com/>can certainly do it with software recording selected. <http://www.highcriteria.com/>

If you only have one recording device, then probably Audacity is not the best to use to record skype calls. Anyway, you can always set the host device to windows wasapi and the input to your speackers loopback, if you're using a version of windows latter to xp. Best regards.

Hello people, I got a question about recording Skype conversations
using Audacity.
I’ ve installed the latest real tec audio drivers for my sound card,
and in fact, stereo mix appears in my recording devices. However,
when I do a call without recording in Audacity, everything goes fine,
but after setting up Audacity to record from stereo mix, the call
doesn’t work.
It seems that Skype works fine when used along, and Audacity too, but
when used together, they don’t.
Any help with recording Skype conversations using Audacity?
Thank you all.
