  1. I don’t know YouTube can record computer screen, In my mind, it’s just a website for videos, thanks for sharing the experience. I used to make screencast with Acethinker online screen recorder, works quite well. It is a web-based tool that lets you record your screen right from your browser. It doesn’t require you to install any additional plug-ins or add-ons. Share it here as an alternative to YouTube.

  2. Thank you so much. I was going nuts. I’ve had my Laptop for a few years now and never had a need to use the camera until now so I didn’t bother with it. You saved me a headache. Thanks again.

  3. How come my c920 webcam is worse than yours? Mines much more blurry (check one of my videos like the “Stephen saves Christmas” or reacting to “reacting to Dave’s flaveo”) is it possible that’s it’s because of my completed/laptop.

  4. Thank you for doing them all in sync, really helps those, like myself, to get a grasp as to what they think is best for them (others just want to discuss it and not show the quality itself). The tests were a nice addition and, though I wont use them for mics, thank you for putting that in too.

  5. I just downloaded the microsoft camera app but it lumps all my photos and videos together so if I record a video and want to upload it to Youtube I don’t know which ones are pictures or videos, how do you separate the photos from videos on the microsoft camera app. I still have my logitech software but the vid servers are down and I don’t know when they will be back up. Oh I just found out that I can no longer use the logitech software for the C922 pro stream camera, must use the microsoft camera app.
