Video Booth is an application that is able to take photos and record video clips, provided that you have a webcam installed on your computer. It features built-in special effects and provides direct access to your favorite websites for image and video uploading processes.
It packs a clean interface that allows users to perform several actions on the go. There are three recording modes available, and you may opt for the first one, which takes multiple snapshots, while the “Continuous Shooting” mode takes four pictures in succession. The last mode enables recording options, as it is possible to create videos pretty quickly.
Of course, the quality of the generated files or videos pretty much depends on the webcam installed on your computer, and it is recommended to use one with a high video resolution.
The application is also able to display a preview with the taken photos. There are several special effects that you can choose from, and you can easily apply them on your pictures or videos.
The program enables the direct uploading of your files to YouTube, provided that you have specified the user name and password of your YouTube account. You can add a title, description, tags, and select a category. Uploading images to different websites is also possible, as long as you provide your login credentials.
This tool doesn’t provide many advanced features, and we would have liked to see support for the possibility of creating multiple photo albums, email photo options integrated in the app, encryption mode, full screen, and hotkeys.
In conclusion, Video Booth is a tool that can help you take photos and record video clips, provided that you have a webcam installed on your computer. It cannot be considered the most powerful tool on the market, as it lacks many advanced options.
