Obtaining your own Conference ID and Pin

  • Tech leads, managers and frequent users of the conference system should request their own conference ID
    • If your company can provide one then you can use that. (e.g. Canonical employees can get a Canonical conference line)
    • If you are a Linaro employee you are eligible for a ZIP conferencing line.
      • Engineering should request from Joey
      • Landing Teams should request from Joe B.

ZIP Conferencing System Help

We use the ZIP conferencing system for PPRs (Public Plan Reviews). Here is a link with some tips for that system:

Recording a Conference Call

Using Reservationless-Plus System

Using the Skype Recording Applet

  • You can use a Skype recording applet to capture the conversation. The http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/09/ubuntu-soundcard-recording/ applet will do this.

     sudo add-apt-repository ppa:osmoma/rec-applet
     sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install rec-applet
  • Add the applet to your panel, right click on the panel -> Select "add to panel" -> choose "Audio Recorder Applet"

Using a Smartphone

  • Put your land-line on speaker mode
  • Run the phone sound recorder on your smartphone
  • When finished, send the recording to your email account
  • An Android HTC phone saves the recording in *.amr format. If you want the file in mp3 format you need to convert it using the soundconverter app:
     sudo apt-get install soundconverter
