I have a Asus N20A notebook with a built in webcam which works just fine for Skype. However, I was wondering whether it is possible to use it for video capture at other times.
I can't find any program associated with it to start the cam independent of skype.
Vista Home Premium.
Thanks

Of course you can. ASUS has its own cam software, if its not installed get the Driver CD out, its on that.

Windows movie (dvd in vista?) maker should also be able to capture directly from the cam.
