Technical question: recording by webcam?

Post by Anyanka » Sun May 12, 2013 4:10 pm

Ben asked a question about a particular tune's bass & how to play it/fingering. It would be easier to show this than to write it out, but I can't figure out how to record a video with the webcam (I don't have Movie Maker, which was the recommendation that th'Internet threw up). Surely that should be easy?

You can download it free from here:

Hohner Vox 4P, Hohner Tango II, Galotta Continent. I just wish I could play them!

Hi Anyanka - What set up did you use in the end? It turned out well :tup:

I got the Fettler to record me on my lovely Canon Ixus... I'll have a play with the webcam & my freshly downloaded Movie Maker one of these days, but the microphone on my webcam is rubbish...

My lappy has a built in webcam so it relies on the PC mic - so rubbish, too. Hence me asking. I do have a decent condenser mic but its a lot of faffing about setting up stuff, software and cables etc.
