What is YouCam?
is webcam software available on some HP and Compaq computers. This software is used to take individual snapshots and capture short video sequences with the built-in webcam, manipulate these photos and videos for artistic effect, and then share the files with other people. The files can be e-mailed, uploaded to the web manually, or uploaded through an embedded link to the YouTube video sharing service.
