5. How to use Amcap tool
AMCAP is an application that let you capture video (with or without
audio) form video device in your system. It captures video (and
optionally audio) to an .AVI file. Below is a description of AMCAP’s
various options and features.
File/Set Capture File - where you indicate what .AVI file to capture
the data into.
File/Allocate File Space - capturing will work better if you capture
into an .AVI file that already exists on your local drive. Here you
set how much space to reserve (how big your file needs to be).
It also helps if you defragment your hard drive before beginning
capture, and have the capture file near the beginning of the
physical drive.
File/Save Captured Video As - Use this to copy the captured
data to another file, so you can reuse the same preallocated
file for your next capture.
