I mostly use my built in camera for my Yahoo Messenger, as a webcam. But now I'd like to record a little movie of myself. When I launch my Camera Utility, and hit the "Movie" tab, I can't get the record button to become available. That is, unless I click on a still image I once took from the slider bar in the lower navigation. Then the Record button becomes available, but won't actually work. What can I do?

In this matter, it's advised to always keep your webcam drivers up-to-date. You can download the latest firmware / driver by accessing the manufacturer's website and search for your device. If this didn't fixed the problem, try to open the Utility, go to Video tab, press the Settings button and choose Default Settings. By doing this, all the modifications made to the option of the program will be restore to default. The record button should become available.
