SoftCam is an excellent, free trial version Windows imaging software, being rather part of the freeware category of software. It allows you to create Windows Movie scenes from your webcam by plug-in to your Windows computer. You then have the ability to view and edit them on your Windows desktop using Microsoft Windows Movie maker. You will find several other types of camcorders on the market today, so I suggest that if you need a basic model of this type, Softcam should be able to satisfy your needs.
There are several websites that offer this product for download, but my recommendation is to download Softcam directly from the manufacturer's web site. This is one of the easiest methods to protect your computer from harmful viruses that can infect your entire hard drive if you accidentally download any viruses from these sites. Softcam also provides real-time protection against spyware, adware, Trojans and malware, which means that it is an excellent program for internet security. The program features a Windows Update button, which means that users can also install any updates for security patches as quickly as possible.
My primary use for Softcam is in recording live video streams of my laptop to share on my blog. It has been a real asset to me in this regard because of the built-in screen capture feature that allows me to easily record an event without having to manually start recording the video. With the majority of the other programs for camcorders, it is necessary to download and install the actual software to the computer in order to record the images. Since softcam has a one time fee for the software and one time fee for its operating system, I feel that it is worth the cost to purchase this software in order to protect my family from harm on-line. With this product on my laptop, I never forget to record everything that happens around me, and my live streams are continuously being viewed online by my friends and family.
