Windows 7: a decent webcam program

a decent webcam program

i had hp mediasmart webcam and it does work, but video recording disables the "Stop Recording" button -_- and taking pictures, the resolution is down to 320 x 240 and it's unchangeable.

i've been getting issues with the hp camera switching resolutions (unchangeable) by itself from 176 x 144 to 320 x 240 and then to 640 x 480 (<- this one i want) but luckily i found it at 640 today!

so all i am asking for is a webcam program that is decent and can take pictures / videos. live stream/upload/extra web features are really not necessary for what a simple web cam program.

video compression would be nice :) since hp has video compression

Better and Really FAST DECENT Search program works on both X-86 and X-64 all builds.
Actually isn't it a bit confusing calling X-86 the 32 bit version whilst X-64 (a lower number) refers to the 64 bit version -- it's a bit like counting in Chinese (sorry any chinese folks reading this). I know historically it referrs to the Intel 8086 processor and all its subsequent developments...
