I have decided to have a small CCTV kind of a setup on my terrace. I have purchased a "Circle GAZE HD-R 1080p" USB2.0 webcam for this along with a USB 2.0 active extension (20 mtrs) to connect it to my laptop.
The Active extension is exactly like this - http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00KW68XNS/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=
The problem I am facing is, the Webcam gets disconnected quiet often while recording, also at times the systems gives an error as "USB device not recognised/malfunctioned).
Can I solve this issue by using a USB 2.0 HUB in between Cam & active extension. Moreover, once I use a USB hub, will it enable me to connect 2 to 3 USB cams.
Also, please advise a good video/audio recording application that is freely available online
