Five tools for recording web camera output

Webcam Video Capture 1

3. Webcam Video Capture

Webcam Video Capture is a basic tool for capturing the output of a Web cam. The software lets you set the output frame rate and choose the video codec to use, and you can also set the capture area. Aside from that the software doesn't have a lot of features. Even so, the software does one thing and does it well.

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.
