There is a webcam that shows my favourite holiday destination town square. I am going there within the next week and I would like to get some friends to record the footage off the webcam whilst I appear on it.
Please can I ask is there an easy way to record the footage?
I tried this some time ago, but gave up when it would not record sound properly. If memory serves me right, you need to either select the entire screen or set it to frame that part of the screen that shows the web page, then click the record button and leave it running until you have finished the recording and then click the stop button. Be warned if you are expecting sound as well as vision - test it first otherwise disappointment reigns
From what you have put it sounds like you are trying to record from a web page that shows live feed from a web cam. As its a live feed and you have no control there is no simple way.
Your friends could use the program you have downloaded from woolwell link, if you go back to the web page and click on screenshot at the top it will take you to a page giving basic instruction on how to capture the desktop.
