Best (FREE/VERY CHEAP) video capture software for integrated webcam on Dell Latitude E6410, running Windows 7?

I seem to only be able to use my webcam when I am chatting online. I would like to be able to record and playback video. I am on a very tight budget, so cannot afford something like Camtasia (~$300), and even something like Debut Video Recording Suite (at $70) is too expensive. Anyone know of free or very cheap options available? Thanks!

Mom's first grandchild-cam

I'm looking for a webcam setup for my technophobic mom who lives half a country away from me. She will be using it primarily to see and communicate with her grandchildren. Strangely for a technophobe, she works from home so she has reliable internet access but she is uncomfortable with complex installations and configurations. I'm looking for make/model webcam recommendations and also any hints on other accessories she might need.

Quickcam with OSX?

At one time I had the URL for a website that provided a patch/driver that allowed you to use a Logitech USB Quickcam Messenger -- the ones with the good Christmas rebates? -- with OS X. But now I can't find it, whether via Google or Sourceforge or Google Groups (which appear to be down). Can anyone help? I'm about to belatedly give one to my sister for her Powerbook, and I'd like to be able to, you know, make it work.
