I tried using "kamoso" to record webcam videos. It was unusable. After _much_ effort installing this or that library, I went to askubuntu.com, it recommended "cheese" instead. Installed that, recorded a short webcam video and played it back with another program.

I'm setting it up for someone who will need to record a video for a course in a few months time and was facing the prospect of buying a £400-£500 laptop in order to do that, something she can ill afford.
