I was wondering which is a good webcam app that works? I have a built in webcam on my laptop and used to create videos and post on Youtube. So I'm looking for a app that can record and can do some editing. Can somebody suggest which would be a good one? thanks.

possibly vlc
i open a video capture card like this
vlc /dev/video0

you can then select advanced controls and you get a red record button.
it records mpeg2 video with sound.

I have not tried with a camcorder device.
also mplayer could capture it, read this thread
