Hey all!

I want to leave a webcam capture for 24 hours straight. I am trying to figure out which software is good for this, I have a big hard drive but I don't want to run out of space. Anyone know any good software to capture with a webcam? Settings, etc. To keep it capturing for 24 hours straight.

Do you want a constant video feed, or a program to take a picture with the webcam every X number of seconds/minutes?

Searching around google quick I found a list of webcam software that may interest you:
Dell Inspiron 1520--Intel Core 2 Duo/1.5 GHz--2 GB RAM--230 GB HD--Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family--Windows XP--Avast! AV Free--Spybot S&D--Malwarebytes--Hijackthis--Chrome (primary browser) Firefox and IE (rarely used)
