I'm trying to record some league matches, but instead of using fraps and uploading them to youtube, I want to select the webcam option so I can just stream them (to save space). How would I do that? I've tried webcammax, video2webcam, and VHScreencapture, but none of them seem to be working. Any help is appreciated.

Youtube has a built-in webcam upload feature. You need the free/shareware program (meaning the main part of it is free, but there's paid features too) called manycam. Once you download/install it and set it as default (tutorial here), do the following:

  • Go to youtube
  • Click upload
  • Click "Record from webcam" (picture)
  • Allow access
  • Record your screen!

Yes but that doesn't answer my question. I want to record/stream my desktop, not from my webcam. Many cam offers features for webcams but I want to turn my screen INTO a webcam. – sfxworks Aug 10 '12 at 20:53
Have you tried camtasia? – Frank Aug 11 '12 at 0:40 How do I stream this to youtube? Again, trying to turn my screen into a webcam. – sfxworks Aug 12 '12 at 3:38
Sorry, try manycam, like I said earlier. Here's an example of how it works: – Frank Aug 12 '12 at 4:50
