How to Use Webcam as Spycam

That's what DiffRec does. Its a free software that converts your cheap webcam into a spy camera. DiffRec works by recording any changes in movement in the webcam. Here's how to set it up -

1. To use it, install DiffRec and start it.
2. From the 'Select Webcam' menu, choose 'Device 0' (You can choose any item here. Just make sure the webcam starts working). This should start the cam.
3. Click 'Camera Positioned' button, followed by 'Start Detecting Changes' button.
4. Hit the 'Save Differences' button to make DiffRec take photos of any changes it detects.
The recorded photos can then be sorted by time to get them in order.

Tested with Windows Vista on a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop.
Note: Dotnet Framework 3.5 is required.
