Recording video from a webcam
Good day, Dear Readers!
In this article, we will talk about how to record video from a webcam.
For example, you want to send a video letter to someone or record some appeal and publish it on the Web on the same YouTube (by the way, here is an article on how to download from YouTube).
The quality of the video still leaves a lot to be desired and not everyone has good cameras that record in high quality. In such cases, it is quite possible to get by with recording from a webcam.
I am often approached by users who still have the Windows XP operating system with requests that it is too early to “discount” this operating system. Therefore, now I will try to show everything on the example of two operating systems. Windows XP and Windows 7.
So, in Windows XP there is a rather handy program for working with video, this is Windows Movie Maker. Although it is considered primitive, in our case this program will be a very suitable solution. over, it is NOT required to install a separate software.
Launch Windows Movie Maker and go to File. “Record video”. Next, we select our webcam. It’s simple.
Now let’s try to record a webcam video in Windows 7. I was trying to remember. in some OS, or in Win7 or in Windows Vista, there was also a built-in Movie Maker Live program, but in my version of Win7 I never found it. Maybe someone in the comments will tell you what system this program was on? By the way, who still DOES NOT know how to reinstall the system, you can watch my video.
Well, since I did NOT find it, I had to resort to a third-party program, namely. VirtualDub. The program is excellent and can do a lot of things, ranging from cutting and pasting video, finishing the overlay of various filters and video capture. Well, and of course, he writes a video from the webcam. You can download the program here. Within the framework of this article, we are interested in, for now, the last point. However, I cannot but name its merits:
- Cuts and glues videos; (How to cut a song read here, and how to cut a song from a video clip I wrote here)
- Re-encodes and converts various video file formats;
- It is possible to work with Multiple audio tracks;
- Works with formats such as.Avi.Dat.Mpeg.Mpg.Divx.
How to record webcam video?
Launch VirtualDub and click “File”. CaptureAVI.
As you can see, the appearance of the window has changed and you can see the image that the webcam captures. If there is, then we need to tell the program our webcam. Click “Device” to the right of the “File” menu and select the model of our camera (in my case, it is Pleomax PWC 4200).
Now we can specify the path in which, by default, our video files will be saved. We go “File”. “SetCapturefile”. Next, specify the path.
It is very easy to record video from a webcam, just press the F5 key on your keyboard and the recording will start. To stop it, press the Esc key.
In my opinion, VirtualDub has proven itself only on the positive side. Being a free program. And I think that I will write about it more than once in future articles. In order not to miss them, we subscribe to updates.
Well, if you want to more seriously master video editing on a computer, then I can recommend you the course of my good friend. Andrei Wilke. The basics of video editing in 115 minutes. The course is very high quality, I got acquainted with it myself before I started getting good videos.
Well, today you learned how to record video from a webcam. Did you succeed? We ask questions and express ourselves in the comments.
Yes, and in addition to this article, I wrote a sequel that addresses Potential Issues with VirtualDub.
