Five tools for recording web camera output

Arcsoft Web Companion 2

Another cool feature is something called Masque, which lets you morph your face into another. The Fun Frame feature lets you capture a Web cam image and place it within a decorative template frame. Finally, the Monitor utility lets you use your Web cam as a motion detector.

The software sells for $34.99, but a free fifteen day trial is available for download.

Be carefull, that company has sent in the past bundled driver update with their updates that have proven to be messing user's systems.

bad enough that crooks can record screen capture, let alone me helping them do it. However, these would be essential especially if you are trying to use a web-cam as a security apparatus. Programs such as these sometimes come with the cost of a security camera system, and sometimes you have to pay for them after the hardware purchase. I could see a lot of folks who want to use their web-cams as an impromptu surveillance cam, doing trials on these software. One of those mentioned here, is already being used by sec/cam companies.
