"How to record webcam videos?"
"What is a good free program I can use to record videos from my Web cam?"
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, Skype etc.
One excellent choice is Supertintin, a webcam recording tool. But it can only support Windows. If you are using Mac, you can try Ecamm Skype call recorder. They record your Webcam and also include a bunch of great features that extend far beyond basic Webcam recording.
- Record MSN/SKYPE/Yahoo webcam streams along with optional sound recording
Including audio from microphone, line-In, CD etc.
You can record any webcam streams (e.g. the fun movies broadcasted in webcam by your chat partner as well as the video conversations, etc.)
- Real time compress recorded webcam streams
You can use this function to get a smaller file size of your record videos so you need not to worry the pc disk space is not enough when recording for a long time.
- Save recorded webcam streams into AVI format files
You can use any player (e.g. Real, Windows Media Player) you have to play back the recorded videos. And you can share with friends also.
- You can browse other web pages or videos during recording of MSN webcam
That means you can minimize or hide the MSN/Skype/Yahoo Messenger window while recording.
- Easy to use
You just press the record and stop buttons in the software to complete recordings. No need to learn the recording technique when you get start recording.
- Other cool features you would prefer
Adjustable FPS and frame size (for you to adjust your output video quality) and user defined save-to directory.
