I would like to ask how to use my webcam as a video recorder. I have an Acer 4530 laptop model. Do I have to install an application for this purpose?

Yes, you will need a webcam utility to record a video. You can use any tool from the Software Informer database, but I suggest you try Debut Video Capture application. It is a free utility developed by NCH Software and beside the video recording tool it has many useful features. Once you install and run the program, click the Device icon and wait for the program to detect your webcam. After that, select the output video format, go to Options, choose a destination directory and enter a name for the file. To start the recording process, press the record button or hit the F5 key.
