How To Create and Send Video Mail for Free


Today anyone with a webcam can quickly and easily create and send video messages for free. You don't have to record videos with expensive equipment, and you don't have to download software. Best of all no expertise is required. If you can create and send text email you can send video mail.


Most people believe that sending videos means recording very large files with a camcorder, and trying to attach it to an email. It usually doesn't work due to email file attachment size limits. mailVU.com is one solution that doesn't require camcorders or file attachments. They have a free video mail service that doesn't require a software download, and it doesn't require a user account. I tried it and put together this step-by-step process for creating your first video mail.


What do you need for video mail?
  • Computer (PC, MAC, Linux all work)
  • Webcam
  • Microphone, either built-in to your webcam or laptop, or external headset
  • Broadband Internet connection


Begin by opening any browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) and going to http://mailVU.com. You will be prompted by the following request to allow access to your webcam. Select Allow.

Now you should be able to see yourself on the left side under Live Camera. If you don't see yourself click on the drop down list of cameras and select the one that works for you. On the Mac it is typically called USB Webcam. Note that until you record a message the deletion options and email option is grayed out at the bottom of the screen.

Click the red Record button above your image to start the 1 minute recording session. This button will change to Stop after you click it, a notification will appear that recording is in process, and a timer counts down from 1 minute. When done click the red Stop button.


Now that the recording is made the information at the bottom of the screen is available to use. You may play back your message before sending it to someone. To play it back simply click the green Play button above your image. Your recording will now play in the right side window while you still see yourself live in the left side Live Camera window.

If you want to record over your message, click the red Record button again to overwrite it. When you are happy with your recording decide if you want to use an auto deletion function at the bottom.

The default deletion time frame is 30 days, but you can change it to anything between 1 and 30 days. And you could also specify the video to be deleted after a certain number of views. If both are checked then whichever event happens first will destruct the video mail.


You can now click Send this as a Video Mail and you will have the following screen to populate:

You fill in the email address fields, and you have the option of adding a text message to your video mail. You can copy yourself if you click the box at the bottom. When done click Send Email. Congratulations! You have now sent your first video mail!


The user will receive an email which is less than 25kb in size that includes a picture of you linking to your video message. They click on your picture and click play and they will be able to hear and see you. To record a video message back to you they can follow this same process.


By using this process anyone can quickly and easily send video messages to anyone in the world.

There is a chance that your program automatically closed the session on the disc. If it does this there is no further burning allowed. Your best bet is to copy the image from the disc onto the computer, then using your program erase your re-writable disc. When burning the images onto your disc be sure the option is not checked to close the disc.

My dvd-raw ds is not reading on my inspiron 1501. I have a recorded my holiday video on a maxwell dv-raw ds (mini dvd) and I cant play it on my dell laptop. I was wondering if you could help? Many Thanks.


you will have to place the disc back in the computer you used to burn it and "close session" this is a common thing with re-writable discs or where discs ar burnt as a data disc.

the exact method of losing discs varies from burning programs to program.

You should check the options of the program you used and look for "close session" or "close disc" or "end session"
sometimes it is useful to write a very small file and then make sure tha the option is ticked before you do so.

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:

HP Pavilion dv9000 Web-cam problem!


This is a issue recognized in HP Notebooks which are shipped with Webcams earlier. However, latest Notebooks are having this issue resolved.
Basically the issue is that the videos that were recorded using the webcam used to record fast than normal because of which the issue started.
HP had released a patch for this where the Videos recorded using inbuilt Webcam will be solved. However, this is not going to fix the issues with the videos that are already recorded.
You can download the patch from the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=ob-51291-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Download and save the Patch in the Notebook and double click it once the file is saved to install it.
Restarting the Notebook will complete the installation.
Record any video and check by playing it to confirm.
Hope this helps...

Make sure the TV is configured properly first off, make sure it's one of the auxilaries that are selected. Now if you haven't already, you should usually press F-something to get your lappy on dual display mode (F8 usually). If that fails, you may have to ween through some of the display properties, which isn't a big deal, but would require more of a live chat session to go through, or more info on here and some patience :).
