Take pictures and videos with any web cam with MyCam.

This is an easy program to install that is similar to the traditional webcam on any computer system. It's pretty self-explanatory in how to use the program, as all you have to do is basically point and click. Make sure you have the item that you're taking a picture of in the view of the camera, or you might get a result that is less than perfect.

The program works with all types of web cams. You can take a few snapshots of family and friends, or you can record a video, saving it to a file so that you can later go back and edit the footage. You can do the same with the snapshots that are taken, as there are a few editing tools available with MyCam.

One of the best things about the program is that it doesn't rally take much installation. It takes up very little space on your system, so it doesn't really slow down once it's being used. However, be aware that if you are using larger files at one time, it can be a little sluggish if you have an older system. The only kind of images that you can work with are JPG and BMP, which kind of limits that availability of the types of images that can be taken, but these are still quality images that you can take and edit with fun effects that you can find online. Videos can be stopped with the speed of each frame set so that you control how fast each slide progresses. There aren't any special requirements to operate the program.

Pros

  • Simple to use
  • Take various snapshots and videos

Cons

  • Doesn't have a lot of editing tools
  • Only works with certain types of images and videos
