I have tried with Cheese. But it shows myself though the webcam, but doesn't do recording.
Thanks in advance.
When you will start cheese , you will see three options on the left bottom side, the first one is for photos, second one is video recording, Before starting the recording, check once your mike settings. In my machine, cheese is working fine. Else there is one more way which is obviously not so good way. Install gtkrecordmydesktop, start cheese in full screen mode and start recording through recordmydesktop.
