There are times when you might need to snap a photo or record somehome video with your PC's webcam. Mac users have PhotoBooth at theirdisposal, while Linux users can always count on the amiable Cheese.Unfortunately (and surprisingly), Windows users are left in the dust.Most of the purchased laptops and netbooks do come pre-installedwith Cyberlink Youcam, but it's not free and you won't have it once youformat your system (unless you've an HP computer). For the rest of us, there are some very unusual yet useful tools that'll do the job just fine.
Windows Live Movie MakerWe start with unusual tool #1 - Microsoft's own Windows Live MovieMaker. As its name suggests, WLMM allows you to create casual moviesand personal videos from an input stream of photos , music and videos.For what it's worth, it can also record and create videos from yourwebcam.
Download and install Movie Maker from here,and launch it from your Start menu. Now click on the "Webcam Video"button on the ribbon, and Movie Maker will turn on and show yourwebcam.
moviemaker.pngrecord-webcam.pngYou can then record to your heart's fill and Movie Maker will createa nice video for you. To get photos, you have to split the video intoframes and extract the required frames from it.
Media PlayersThe 'geekier' media players, like VLC and Media Player Classic, canstream directly from your webcam which you can then record usingbuilt-in functionalities.
Media Player ClassicLaunch Media Player Classic, and press Ctrl + V (or go to File ->Open Device). Choose your webcam, set your audio source to "Videocapture device" (you can use your built-in microphones, but I alwaysgot a very loud static-like noise from it), and click OK. Media PlayerClassic will now stream your webcam, which you can then record usingCapture Settings (press Ctrl + 8, and tweak your settings).
media-player-classic-webcam.pngcapture-settings.png VLC PlayerIn VLC, press Ctrl + C (or go to Media -> Open Capture Device),and choose settings as shown in the screenshot. As with Media PlayerClassic, you might want to turn off the audio to avoid the irritatingnoise. Once VLC shows your webcam, you can either record it (asdetailed in this post) or simply take snapshots using Video -> Snapshot.
vlc-webcam.png Windows (Itself!)When your webcam is connected via USB, Windows will show it as aseparate device under Computer (My Computer in XP). You can also findand launch it from Devices and Printers in Windows 7. Windows allowsyou to take snapshots from USB connected webcams.
Cameroid (all platforms)Cameroid is an online webcam appthat offers PhotoBooth-esque effects and allows you to save yoursnapshots, or share them online. The app is Flash-based, yetsurprisingly lightweight and easy-to-use. There must be numerous othersimilar webapps, so do let us know if there is anything else that youuse.

To do this, follow these steps:

  • You must also select the video input line you want to use for capturing your webcam video.

  • 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 don't know how to access my webcam


Hello:
For the majority of webcam uses, you would use a separate program that accesses the webcam. Examples include: If you only want to record videos and take pictures, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. You can download it at http://explore.live.com/windows-live-movie-maker?os=other

How to record on my webcam


Camtasia or Windows Movie Maker should ought to do the trick
OR
There are a number of good free tools for recording Webcam videos. You can use Windows Movie Maker, which comes with Windows XP and Vista, but I prefer to download apps that are geared specifically for integrating with the various chat apps like MSN, Yahoo, etc. One excellent choice is Broadcaster StudioPRO, a freeware webcam recording tool. It records your Webcam and also includes a bunch of great features that extend far beyond basic Webcam recording.

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:

Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.

Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.

Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.

good luck

Making video


Hey cheekybum27,


If you have Windows XP, you can use Windows Movie Maker!

Start > All Programs > Windows Movie Maker

Just go to Capture from device, and voila! You can pick the webcam. You can also record sound if you have a mic.
