Hi,
Download Videocaster and install. Just choose Capture Video from the menu..
You can edit, add music, effects, change speed etc and even stream directly to the web!
It's cool and it's free.
So have fun :)

Can i record a video on A4tech PK-635 Web Cam


Yes you can. You can either use the webcam's included software amcap or you can also use Windows Movie Maker.

To do this, follow these steps:
  • Go to your Windows Movie Maker Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device".
  • Select webcam from the list of analog devices.
  • You must also select the video input line you want to use for capturing your webcam video.
  • Then enter a name for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you want to save it.
  • Select your video setting preferences for the video you want to capture.
  • To stop capturing, you can either choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.

Hope these steps help. Goodluck!

I go to youtube to try to record a video from the built-in webcam and it says it cannot find a webcam.


Are you sure it's possible to capture/record youtube using your built-in webcam? I am afraid and no one has ever done it yet. It's possible with software like camstudio, but it's not possible. Just imagine, you webcam is facing towards you and how could you capture the video running on your computer monitor/screen?
There are several softwares but I have never come across a software which can capture both video and audio at the same time. In the same way CamStudio doesn't support both video and audio, it only supports video and we use mic to record the sound or use audio editor software with Stereo Mix to record the sound while the video is playing, later we edit to create the video with it's sound. If you want to download, you can visit CamStudio.org (click here to visit), it's a freeware.

I hope your webcam has no problem with yahoo messenger or skype etc.. if you have please let me mentioning the problem and make sure it's detected in the My Computer or in the Device Manager.

[Alternatively you can download Youtube video from this site; getyoutubevideo.com]

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I can not locate the record/stop button for capturing a video


You need to use a webcam program to record videos. Personally I like the free version of Debut. You can get the free download link in this article.

See if you have a webcam software which allows you to do it. If not then you can download a software paid or free version as per your requirement.

Some paid one's are: Debut Video Capture Software, EatCam

Please rate if helpful.

How to Record Webcam Video with Earlier Versions of Windows Movie Maker If you're still using Windows XP, your Windows Movie Maker version might still support capturing video from a webcam. To do this, go to your WMM Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device". Select webcam from the list of analog devices. You must also select the video input line you want to use for capturing your webcam video. Then enter a name for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you want to save it. Select your video setting preferences for the video you want to capture. To stop capturing, you can either
choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.
How to Record Video on Your Webcam with Newer Versions of Windows Movie Maker When we say newer versions, we are referring to Windows Movie Maker version 6 which comes pre-loaded with the Windows Vista system. Since Windows Vista is a pretty advanced OS, we expected the latest version of the WMM to support webcam video capture as well. It's very helpful and economical since it comes packaged with Windows Vista, and you don't have to pay the extra cost just to have that tool.
So, the next question now is, how can you record a webcam video using Windows Movie Maker 6. Actually, like we said - you can't. You won't see the "Start Capture" tool in the File Menu of your latest Windows Movie Maker.
Your best bet is to look for alternative and cheaper software that would help you capture whatever you want to record from your webcam. Or, better yet, use the software that comes with your webcam to capture video and then import it into Windows Movie Maker for editing and enhancements. If your webcam didn't come with video capture software, you're in luck because there are free software appllications available for you to download to do such tasks. You can find a good list of webcam video capturing software from this list:

Use ACER Arcade application.
From User manual:
"Acer Arcade allows you to capture and record video clips from other external
devices, such as a DVD player or camcorder.
Click Capture Device on the video page and then select the source you are using
for your video input. There is a choice between "S-video" and "Composite."
To capture a video clip, you then need to click the red record button in the
onscreen controls.
The destination folder can be set from the "Settings" menu.
Clicking on Advanced and selecting Settings allows you to set the quality of the
video captured. You can choose from "Good," "Better" or "Best." Selecting a
higher quality results in a larger file when capturing video clips.
Snapshot
Snapshot mode is available in Cinema, Video and TV modes. This function can
be used to capture the onscreen image at any time."
