    can you record a webcam feed on the pc?

    my digital camera doubles up as a pretty good quality web cam...

    ..but can you record video on a pc somehow and save as avi or wmv files? there must be some bit of software that can do this but i dont even know what to search for.

    basically i want to send some video messages to people but the card i have for the camera will only store 1 and a half minute of video and i need longer really.

    thanks for any advice

    did your camera not come with some software that allows you to do this? I remember a mate bought a digital camera and it had some software with it for d/loading and also recording.

    It is possible though.

    If i remember I will look into it for ya [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    You can purchase screen capture software. It's not quite the same as a direct feed, but basically u can record sections of your screen and capture the output to avi files.

    It's used for creating trainning material and such like, but I guess it would do the trick.. Im not sure what the quality of playback would be like for a camera tho, maybe 10FPS. Might be adequate for what you require.

    Google "hypercam" might help.
