    I have a Mac 10.7.5.
    Can I record a FaceTime call session with Quicktime or Quicktime Pro?
    If so, is the video and audio in-sync?

    Open FaceTime
    Open Quicktime
    On Quicktime Menu choose, File > New Movie Recording

    I don't believe "New Screen Recording" will capture the audio but you can try.

    Yes sadly it doesn't record audio.

    If you have a mini jack to mini jack cable, I believe you can plug one end into the line out port of the mac, one to line in and I believe you can record the audio that way if you select 'Line In' on QT's screen recording menu.

    Of course, this means you won't be able to hear the audio unless you buy a splitter and wear headphones/attach speakers.

    It also requires a Mac with both line in/out, which I'm not sure how many still have. I know 15" cMBPs have them.
