Ok so what your going to want to do is on your desktop there should be an icon (if you installed software) click it and you will get a screen with what ever your pointing the webcam at (make sure you pluged it in) and at the top you will see three circles one has a camera in it click that and you will be recording it will save to your computer video folder. and if you wanna put it on youtube you would have to create a youtube acount fill out the video info once you hit the upload button and hit quick capture and you'll be on your way. For windows movie maker go file capture video fill out that info and your good to go hope this helped andywarhaul

I have an acer 5330 aspire. The webcam gives you an option to capture shots but is there a way to record a video. please help


To record a video, you must have a software that can do so.
If you go to http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=52 and go under the "Applications" tab, you will see "Acer WebCam Application". Download one of those and install it and look for a record option. If that is not available, you can always use an application that is not built by Acer. Examples of those free applications are listed here: http://download.cnet.com/windows/video-capture-software/?filter=licenseName%3D%22Free%22'&filterName=licenseName%3DFree'&tag=narrow

How do i record video?


If you have a Windows XP or Vista machine, you have software already to do this. Windows Movie Maker will allow you to capture video from your webcam. Open the Program and select the Capture video option.

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:

I have a Mikomi DC-7130 Webcam with Mic but cannot get any sound when I play back recordings. after re-loading the software twice I now find I cannot play the recorded video back with sound. I am now...


Click the 'Devices' menu and you should see a tick next to the Webcam name (USB 2.0 UVC Camera).

Underneath this should be the same name (USB 2.0 UVC Camera), select it and a tick will appear next to it.

This means that you are using the webcam as the mic for your video/webcam (instead of a seperate microphone).


Now click on the 'Capture' menu and the option 'Capture audio' will be available (previously it was greyed out)

Tick this/select it and your webcam will pick up the audio.

I hope this helps.

Also, if anyone finds the image a bit blurry, it can be sharpened bv rotating the webam lens.
