ArcSoft WebCam Companion
Full user review
"Very user friendly and records and saves videos-"
This is very easy to use and will you can record videos of yourself with your webcam from your computer without going online and save them as well.And because I have an HP Netbook it is included so I did not have to pay for it.
Unless it is included on your laptop when you bought it. You will have to pay to continue to use this program when your 15 day trial ends.
I was lucky because I have an HP Mini 210 Netbook,Webcam Companion 3 was already installed on it so I did not have to pay to use it. for anyone who does not have it pre installed on their new laptop. Then you WILL have to pay to use it after 15 days trial.Until a few days ago I thought that Webcam Companion 3 was my built in webcam. Until some one told me it was not just a video program. I found out my built in webcam is HP webcam 50. A built in web cam driver is hidden and you cannot uninstall it but you can use a plug in external webcam. Like Logitech,I do as this gives a better quality than a built in webcam.Webcam companion 3 or 4 gives you the means to use your webcam on your computer,to record videos or take photos,without going onto a video site(You Tube for eg) to do this. It also saves videos in WMV or MPG format so you can upload them to your site.If you uninstall Webcam Companion 3/4 you will still have your built in webcam and can still use an external plug in webcam. But you will have to go directly onto the video or website,such as You Tube or My Space to record from your webcam.A tool like this by passes all of that so you can record your video in private,off the web and save them on your computer. So only you can watch it or share it on a video site on the web if you want to. But the disadvantage is that you have to pay to use this. It is not free. Andrea Borman.
