Using the Windows Camera App to Record Video

You’be probably used your smartphone to record yourself but you can also use your Windows PC. Let’s face it many of us are having to record ourselves.

The advantage of using the camera in your computer is you probably already have it propped up whereas a smartphone might need a holder or propping up on a pile of books. The disadvantage is the cameras are not always as good as a smartphone camera but nevertheless can do the job. If you are using a laptop the built-in camera might be at a bit of a low angle so it is not the most flattering angle looking up your nose. You could always raise it up, just make sure you put it on something stable and not on something where it can slide off.

This built-in app is easy to use and in the video below I show you how to use it.
