Hey guys,

So I've found my webcam but don't really know how to use it. I thought (or figured) I had software on my computer for it, but that doesn't seem to be the case after searching around. I haven't used the camera in a couple of years, so....not really an expert on this stuff. I was hoping some of you who have posted videos before could help me get started. Do I need to DL software so I can record onto my computer?

Any help would be great. Now that I've found the camera, I'm excited to get posting some videos on here. Thanks in advance. :smile:

PS - if it helps, it's a Logitech webcam.

If you are using Windows XP, you should have a program called "Windows Movie Maker", which will capture direct from your camera. You can also download it here:

Your camera should have come with some software that would do the same thing. I have a logitech and it works with the Movie Maker.

Let me know if you have XP and Movie Maker and I can give you some more tips.
