How to Record and Send a Webcam Email

"How can I record and send a Webcam email?"

There are several different ways you can send Webcam videos via email. If you have software like YouCam, you can record the video in the software, then send the video as an attachment to your email message. While sending a video attachment works, I don't recommend that method because video attachments in email are frequently rejected by the email service provider of the person you are sending the email to. A better alternative is to sign up for a free video email service designed to store the video for you and then email a link to the message recipient. More specifically, I recommend the free version of Eyejot.
