Free webcam software

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been working on a laptop for a friend. I bought it new from Dell, and as I expected, it was full of bloatware that are worse then viruses.... but that's another story.

Anyway, to get rid of all the bloatware and other things, I reformatted the laptop. To make a long story short, I need to find some webcam software for the laptop. One that you can load up and it will take pictures and videos. I know the webcam works, so I just need some free software to take advantage of it.

Can't you download Dell's software from their website?

They don't offer any webcam software. Or at least they don't make it obvious. I couldn't find it in the downloads and drivers section or searching on their site.

I found a program called WebcamMax on Download. I don't think he'll mind watermarks on output...

Would Skype take pictures and record from the webcam without the need for an internet connection?

Other then the giant watermark, WebcamMax does it's job with many effects, something I don't think Skype does. Yes I'll install Skype on there for chatting, but I need something for goofing around.

You can try Manycam. Has effects and stuff, works with multiple programs at once, etc. Should probably also give you the options to record and snap pictures too.

Give it a shot.
