AMCap is a webcam video capture program which records what your webcam sees and saves it directly to your hard drive.
Support both AVI and MPEG video saving, AMCap makes recording webcam videos so easy. Some additional features include applying special effects (like alpha-blending, transparency, overlays) and can take still screenshot images on the fly.
Newer features include DV camcorder and TV tuner support, better compression, zooming and full-screen support.
Overall, this is a very simple video capturing tool and doesn't feature very many advanced functions. It doesn't really work as a viable surveillance tool because video files take up so much space without much needed compression. It also does not take automatic screenshots, which was a let down.
With that said, if you do just want a simple utility to record from your webcam, AMCap might be what you're looking for.AMCap 9.22
