Needed: software for laptop webcam

Postby simplex » Fri Apr 12, 2013 12:48 pm

I am looking for an easy tool that can take pictures (or even films) with the livecam that is built into my laptop.

No, I do not want Skype.

Any hints appreciated.

Thank you! Works like a charm. But what's this .webm format that videos are stored in?
