Five tools for recording web camera output

Active Webcam 2

Besides basic recording capabilities, the software offers a number of other nice features. For instance, you can perform motion based recording. If the software detects motion on a camera it can send you an E-mail message alerting you to the activity. The software also has the ability to create Web pages and to do some low end video editing.

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.
