  1. Hi guys,

    I'm new to the forums but have been subscribed to the RSS feed for a while. Apologies for creating a thread as my first post, but I deemed this the best place to ask this question.

    I recently bought a laptop with a built-in webcam (MSI GX620 for the curious ones). It initially came with Windows Vista, but I quickly formatted and installed Windows 7. Unfortunately, Windows Vista came with a decent webcam software called CrazyTalk - it allowed capture and video recording, as well as editing and image warping - a la Mac's Photo Booth app.

    Now I have no good software to utilize my webcam. Does anyone know of any decent open-source webcam capture/record software?

    Thanking you in advance for your help,
    Aaron, Ireland.

    Thanks for letting us know
    Contact MSI here:
    They surely must have software for Windows 7 Webcams, even if they have to give you some software from another model ;)
