View Full Version : Webcam video capturing

14th January 2009, 12:48 PM
Hi all!

I recently moved to Australia with my family still back in Europe. As a new user to Mac I'm desperate to find a SW that allows me to capture webcam video/audio streams. Hopefully this will allow me to record and replay my son's updates from home.

Any advice is very much appreciated!

There might be software that integrates with the screen cams, but the only software I know of (limited knowledge) is screencam software like ishowu or screenflow which will capture information as seen on the screen, including system audio.

ishowu is an app that will record your screen with audio too.

quicktime pro?

or do you want to capture the live streams from your son? How would they be streamed, through Skype?

Your webcam -> Quicktime Pro.
Someone else's in an iChat AV chat -> Isn't there an option in iChat to save the video chat (and have it turn up in iTunes I believe).
Some Other Program -> Screenflow (http://www.telestream.net/screen-flow/overview.htm) is a pretty good app I find for Leopard for capturing what's on the screen and any audio streams too.

Hi lenman74. Yes I would like to use it to capture it through Skype.
