There are times when you want to kick back and make long leisurely Skype video calls and times when all you need is to record a quick clip of video and attach it to an email message or something. Unfortunately it’s not easy to find tools on Windows to do the latter, which is where this small free utility comes in.
Kamerah is a free webcam recording tool which does what it says on the tin. Just install it, fire it up and select your choice of webcam. Once done, all you have to do is hit the big red button and you’ll instantly capture video from the webcam which is stored in an .avi file for you to use as you wish.
There’s nothing fancy about the program, that’s the beauty of it. You can, however, tweak your video resolution and compression settings if you’re interested in optimizing the output, but apart from that it’s the big red button or nothing. Oh hold on, you can change the background to green or blue.
Hey, it may be basic, but it works. And it’s free. Works with most versions of the Windows operating system.
