Yes, this is possible. I did some testing today and found a process that seemed to work really well. Here’s a video tutorial that shows you the process I used.

Here are a couple important steps to remember:

1. Recording system audio with Camtasia Studio 7 requires Vista or Windows 7. If you are running XP, here’s an article that mentions some workarounds: http://www.techsmith.com/learn/camtas...

2. Within Skype, make sure you set your audio output to Speakers. I tested this using my usb headset as the audio output and it didn’t capture anything.
