Satellite A660: how to record video with USB webcam?
I recently bought a Satellite A660 which has a built-in webcam. Using the supplied Toshiba video application I can record videos, but I find the clarity and brightness of the picture quite poor, even in good lighting.
I have a USB webcam that I've plugged in and tested e.g. in Skype, and it produces much better pictures in the same conditions. My question is: how can I tell the Toshiba video app to use the USB webcam instead of the built-in one? I can't find any settings where I can choose which camera to use.
If that's not possible, do I need to install some other video recording software? Windows 7 doesn't seem to have any applications where you can simply record video from a webcam (I thought Windows Move Maker would do this, but it seems not).
I just want to be able to record video from my USB webcam - any suggestions on how best to do this would be welcomed.

I don’t think something like this is possible. Preinstalled “Camera Assistant Software “ is obviously designed to run with build in cam only.
What you need is some third part software that you can use for this purposes.
Google a little bit around and visit some video forums where you can pick up info about this.
