Best software program to record webcam sessions?

Hi all,
Looking for a free program to be able to record webcam chat sessions.
I used to have a good one a few years back but I forget the name of it.
I Googled and there seems to be a lot but I don't know whats decent or crap. (or spyware)
I want something that can record in decent quality as well.
I have Windows XP home.
I trust the opinion of GUG'rs so hopefully I'll get some good advice.
Thanks in advance.

Well for starters, its illegal to record a live cam stream without the permission of the other person (or site, if you are trying to record webcam shows you have bought online) Most cam sites allow you to archive your OWN shows (ones you have paid for)

If you are trying to record your OWN webcam stream, of YOURSELF, nearly all webcams come with the software to do that. If you leave me your webcam make/model I can help you with that.

Its pretty much never, ever ok to use anything to capture a live stream of someone else on cam- unless you happen to have explict rights to the material, and all the corresponding paperwork.

Whoa hold up!
I don't know what you were thinking but its just for simple chat & yes I would have permission of the other person(s).
I have relatives that moved overseas so I would like to record the session then show family later.
I have the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 but haven't hooked it up yet.
So, A.E. or anybody else ... any good, free software to do this?

Hubby, please try Camstasia from download.com however the recorded file sizes 'd be large as compared to one from another software - webex which is not free though you can't hunt for a free version.

Camtasia Studio

I agree with this post! Camtasia studio is by far one of the best screen/window recording programs I have ever tried, out of at least 20 others. No watermarks, easy to use, and results in great quality. What you see is exactly what it produces (with proper rendering of course). A major upside is that it also allows editing (ie: remove cursor, frame clipping/transitions, & audio editing) with its built in editor. You can save video files directly or as a project file to edit later. I immensely suggest this software not just to record with, but as a media creator altogether! I know for a fact that I will not bother using any other.

This is an old message thread, so most likely the past viewers and commenters will not be seeing my message. However, this message isn't for them, it's for YOU.

Actually, AE is right, she should think the worst in people!.........that's why I'm here :) I'm looking for software to record webcam shows just for that purpose! Now, I probably should let the person know that I am going to record the webcam show but,....... since I'm paying this person for this webcam show I should have the right to record it. Plus, this person lives a continent away and doesn't speak a lick of English and probably wouldn't give a flying crap if I recorded the show. Its not like I'm going to sell this recording or try and make a profit, its for my own collection. But, for the sake of my conscience, I will let this person know that I am planning on recording the webcam session. AE, you sound like someone that use to perform on a webcam or worked for a site that catered to that type of business. What do you care if people decide to record a webcam show? If I recall the visual imagery in my head, should I pay for that too?

Re: Best software program to record webcam sessions?
hi joe you hit just right - feel the same way, i wanted to discuss this in private with you. its like scores of guys go to cam girl sites constantly just to see a good deal of the women act like arrogrant beeeiotches so hard pressed for money like ive never seen before, from all over the world. now its one thing to join any of these cam girl sites, but to pay the outrageous amounts of money they are asking is pathetic. I'm sure theres ways to get anything for free in a legal way on the net-hackers would know, after all, when society becomes the thieves, the government, web sites, etc. -and they have been for decades, its no longer 'stealing' to get what you seek in a fair way. These real thieves-all stores, economy, IRS, -the whole system, would have the average person think it is, - when in truth they are stealing from us. So the word 'stealing' and 'piracy' are just relative words, 'euphemisms' for this whole thieving worldly system to use to try to justify their evils and their REAL stealing, from us. Just because they are a big majority and have lots of resources doesnt make them right. Robin hood was never a thief, he just took back what was already the people's, STOLEN by sheriff-note 'a sheriff'-thats all your corrupt dirty cops out there, amidst the good ones-probably the minority. by the sheriff of nottingham on prince john's behalf-obama and government. I love the movie 'Falling Down' with michael douglas, I don't fully agree with certain means and details etc. but overall the FALLING DOWN is society and america which has fallen down a long long time ago, to produce characters like the one michael douglas portrays-and the government, society, etc has no one to blame but itself. Of course they portray douglas' character as the one who's 'fallen dowwn' which is a total lie-if you listen and watch thoroughly all the words he says, you easily see the hypocrisy of the way everything is-courtesty of scores of years of government and all kinds of shit, organizations, etc. who's the real thief? its not shoplifting or stealing when they charge you an arm and a leg for something ridiculous-they are attempting to rob from you. So its enough we pay for the cam girl show, we have the right to record it, because its personal, for us, WE PAID FOR IT, and well have it to save. Some stupid idiot 23yo woman from some country asked 'why do you want to record it'? like, duhhhhhhhhhhhhh who wants to pay a ridiculous amount just to watch a SHORT show - shit i can get better table-lap dances for 5 bucks live in person than some of these 'shows', and then if you really liked the woman and show-its over! stupid. in an age where practically your farts are recorded this makes no sense. This kind of behaviour from any and all programs, sites, on the web etc. and in society is only going to produce more people who WILL find ways to get what is fair. The real enemy of the people of the u.s. is the government and tons more secret, unknown, hidden, evil organizations-that have been around for centuries-including 'members' people in these organizations and 'disposable' people and the whole lot-who carried out 911 -the murder of 3000 people, jfk, pearl harbour, waco, texas, oklahoma city, jonestown, the list of their evils goes on and on to this day-THEY are the ones causing all the trouble in the usa and around the world. They are evil and deceived to the point where they actually believe they will defeat Jesus Christ! When he comes, with all his saints-the armies of heaven, he will destroy-crush them-all them, including satan that deceived them will ALL be cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity-conscious torment for ever and ever.............
