Editors' Review

A great freeware application for laptop and PC users that have a web cam, Video Booth gives users the ability to take snapshots and video clips quickly and easily. Video Booth also has a number of effects so the user can customize their photos and videos and add a personal touch.

Video Booth has the look, feel, and operation of a conventional digital camera. There are icons at the bottom left of the display that let the user switch from still photos to video with one click, and another button to the right for adding effects to photos and video. Video Booth also makes it fast and easy to directly upload photos and videos to YouTube, a website, or social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Exporting them to local folders is just as fast and easy. Videos and photos that have been recently taken are displayed in the form of thumbnails at the bottom so they can easily be recalled and edited. Taking a photo or video is exactly as one would expect from a traditional digital camera. Simply look into the lens to find the perfect shot, and then click the Snap button. Video Booth will count down three seconds before it snaps the shot or starts shooting video.

Video Booth downloads and installs without issues and uninstalls cleanly. Video Booth is an easy to use program that will allow any user to get the most out of his or her web cam.

    "Perfect for kids"

    November 21, 2013   |   By smayher

    Version: Video Booth 2.5.5.6

    Pros

    Easy for kids to use.
    Over 20 effects on the free version.
    Easy countdown feature for camera and video.

    Cons

    Download pictures requires purchase

    Summary

    I'm the Data Technician for a non-profit preschool program and I'm doing a technology tour for our 3 and 4 year-old. We have a handful of kid-sized PC tablet computers just the right size for little kids. The computers have a webcam camera attached. I needed a software package that would take advantage of the webcam feature. After a simple search on the internet, I found Video Booth (www.my-video-booth.com). The site explained that you only get some basic effects and updates with the free version, but I wouldn't be able to export the pictures. The free version would be enough for me to try on the computers and see how the kids would react. It was a big hit! The kids were able to navigate over 20 different effects of photo manipulation, including color schemes, mirrors and warping, and background scenes. The kids were beyond excited to preview themselves and their friends in comical scenes and making silly expressions. The most popular scenes were the movie theater, the art museum and the news room. The different scene effects brought in new vocabulary for the children to try and made reference to their personal lives, like the newspaper or the billboard signs. The kids learned how to angle the camera or move themselves to make the most of the image capture. I saw kids contort themselves, stick out their tongues and strike poses for the camera. Self awareness, self expression and self esteem are all very important at this age of impressionability and self discovery. The children served in our program come from various backgrounds and including knowledge about technology, but they couldn't get enough of Video Booth, snapping picture after picture. The camera button on the program counts down, which helps the kids learn counting in reverse. The screen flashing white informed them that picture was taken and they could review their pictures on the filmstrip below. The computer's 180 degree camera also allowed them to turn the camera on room around them and capture their classmates and teachers in action. The kids have raved to their parents at the end of class and asked me when I could bring the computers back so they could take more pictures. Video Booth on these tiny PCs is helping the children learn math skills and expand their knowledge about technology. It helps build fine motor development as they scroll through the variety of effects and select their scenes and activate the camera. It expands their vocabulary around technology and puts them a step ahead as they learn to use the program on the computer. Video Booth is the best software around.

    "Not Free, keeps prompting to upgrade with every update"

    August 19, 2013   |   By zeke321

    Version: Video Booth 2.5.3.6

    Pros

    Nothing much really

    Cons

    Bad quality video and sound, can't save unless you get a license, if you get a license it prompts you to "go pro" even after.

    Summary

    I had to get something to complete an emergency project I was given at the last minute. Based on CNET's review, which is OBVIOUSLY shilling for the maker, I got this at the Pro level. I wasn't happy with the quality. A year later I was prompted again for an update and to register the pro version. DATPRO "help" is condescending, rude, and no help at all.

    "not free - f**k CNET and VideoBooth"

    July 28, 2013   |   By scla0002

    Version: Video Booth 2.5.0.8

    Pros

    none. This program, company and CNET are pieces of sh*t.

    Cons

    Spent hours looking for webcam programs that takes pic on delay so I can back away for fully body pictures. This program had so many stars I thought it must be good and I didn't read comments. You can't use the pictures it takes without paying.

    Summary

    CNET used to be a reputable site but now it's just another piece of sh*t, filthy, greedy company in our plutocracy desperately in need of guillotines.

    "NOT FREE & FALSE ADVERTISEMENT"

    April 17, 2013   |   By Nilufer

    Version: Video Booth 2.4.8.6

    Pros

    simple, practical

    Cons

    They use the term EXPORT or TRANSFER to mean SAVING a photo/video.
    But these terms already have their dedicated meanings and this is nothing short of FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!

    Summary

    ABSOLUTE FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!
    NOT FREE!! CANNOT SAVE VIDEO/PICTURES.

    "Sleazy and not really free"

    April 15, 2013   |   By pbstewart1960

    Version: Video Booth 2.4.8.2

    Pros

    It appears to work.

    Cons

    Tries to bring lots of crapware along for the ride. If you're not careful, you'll install a bunch of junk you don't really want.

    The "free" version is so crippled as to be useless; you cannot save pictures or videos to your computer unless you pay for the "Pro" version.

    Summary

    Sleazy and not really free.
