Debut runs silently in the background and can record a movie of your desktop screen or it can capture live video from the webcam. And the software weighs less than half a MB.
Once the video is captured, Debut can send you the recording via email attachments using the default email program on your desktop.
Alternatively, the software can upload the recorded video to any web server via FTP access. And if you are on a network, you may ask Debut to automatically copy the video recording on to another network folder.
Debut Video Recorder is available as a free download for all editions of Windows including Vista.
Debut may also be used as a spy camera for monitoring the desktop screen or even your cubicle from a remote location. If the recorded movies are too big in size, consider reducing the screen capture rate to something like 5 frames per second.
