"Good for general purpose capture."

May 03, 2013

 |  Version: AMCap 9.21 build 156.3

Pros

Will capture most connected video devices.

Cons

Would have gotten 5 stars if it could do time lapse still captures and capture more than one device at a time.

"Tight, efficient, Windows-friendly utility"

October 20, 2012  |  By Ignatius_Reilly

 |  Version: AMCap 9.21 build 156.3

Pros

- interface closely adheres to IBM/Microsoft Windows conventions so that it is extremely intuitive for Windows users
- windows can be sized and dragged exactly as expected
- quick setup, quick program start, quick video acquisition
- can run multiple program instances to monitor multiple video streams
- videos can easily be run "full screen" with no Windows borders

Cons

IMO, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this software although I recognize that many people are dissatisfied because they assume that it is something more than it is. It might be regarded as more of a "utility" than a full-featured program.

Summary

I have only run AMCap on Windows 7, where it has performed flawlessly. I have had great difficulties with more elaborate programs. I considered just using the software from my hardware manufacturer, a leading vendor of webcams, mice, keyboards and such. I was amazed that their software allows only a smallish window in which to view their 1080p webcam image! And with the vendor software, there is no way to view the output of more than one webcam at a time. AMCap beautifully overcame both these limitations. But it is not the solution for advanced features such as launching an unattended recording session based on movement within the image. Yes, I feel that the rock-solid basic features of AMCap should be standard from the hardware vendor and the base upon which more sophisticated programs are built. Unfortunately, AMCap is the only package I have found that even does these basic things really well.

"Fastest way to test a webcam. Otherwise useless."

April 01, 2011  |  By Bubba_Gump

 |  Version: AMCap 9.20 build 132.2

Pros

A tiny FREE program that requires no installation, that can quickly confirm whether or not your webcam is functional.

Cons

No other programs use/require this software, and other than the mediocre built-in capture functions, it basically has no other use. Maximum supported resolution appears to be 640x480, regardless of your camera's capabilities.

Summary

Unless you purchased a $5 webcam from China off eBay that came with no software, or found an old one where the software is no longer available, you probably won't have much use for this program after the initial installation to test to see if your camera is working.

But, since it doesn't record until you tell it to, it can be handy if you get creative. I sometimes use it to check to see what my pets are doing behind my back w/o turning around. :)

"Didn't work, couldn't fully delete."

February 27, 2011  |  By petepal55

 |  Version: AMCap 9.20 build 132.2

Pros

Never found any.

Cons

Error on second run, had to reload it in order to delete it's shortcuts and folder. It locked up Windows Explorer if you didn't delete them before removing the program.

Summary

Maybe it'll work on your machine but I won't even think about it again, I hate sloppy programming.

"This Product is Pretty Great..."

June 26, 2007  |  By Jotts

 |  Version: AMCap 9.11 build 109.4

Pros

I have 8.(something) version (which came with my webcam on the CD) but i have checked this out too... it has 18 filters, great options, can write up to 1200x(something,not sure) at least for my webcam and this version allows to actually configure still image options. This comes for a good price, about the price of an average webcam and its features make it a good deal.

Overall this is more customizable and more configurable and its worth an upgrade from versions 8(includes 8) and down since this fixes loads of bugs and for a good price. If this came on the drivers CD for your webcam then check the version and update if its under 8(includes 8) because its worth it, trust me.

5 Stars product, must try.
