    The idea of webcam chatting is exciting, but I have a real paranoia about it. Seems like it would be easy to record on the other end and I'd have no control of someone uploading the video somewhere.

    Is this a realistic fear, and are there things you can do to make sure you don't end up on xtube? Advice is welcome.

    Don't do anything on the internets you don't want recorded and bouncing around the world. It is possible you could be recorded, if unlikely.

    Sexual urges pass, but internet clips live forever. And ever. And ever.

    Yes, because it's really your mother testing to see if you're a good son or not. If you do it, she will cry.

    yea, might sound hot but before you do anything really do think about it. The other guy on the other hand could record you. Especially with the new Macs that can record screens into video capture.

    But honestly if you want to risk it, go ahead.

    even thought i have never done it before, im sure if you google how to record someone webcam on yahoo, skype or any of the such youll get thousands of hits.. so im sure it can easily be recorded. sadly i have done it so much when i was younger that at this point im sure thoudands of people could have videos of me so ... oh well at this point.

    of your scared of it yet you want to do something naughty, dont do naughty things and show your face as same time or while it could be recording which seem to be the common way people do it

    Good advice, do it as your own risk.

    Technical note : if someone see your video, it's possible to record the video, even if the software itself don't allow recording. If it goes on screen, it can be saved, more or less difficult to do but always possible.

    Security (encription, VPN etc...) can make it close to impossible from someone to capture your vid between you and the guy you send it too (on the internet pipes), but the guy receiving it can always save it if he is determined to do so.

    On the Mac there is software that will record a Skype video call. Assume there is similar software for the PC. Can be saved as a movie, and can also make stills. Best advice - be careful.

    LOL-- you've got plenty of people saying "well just don't do anything on cam that would embarrass you if it were to be recorded and shared without your consent." If I could offer a counterpoint to the puritans-- if you do want to do stuff on cam that would embarrass you were it recorded, just make sure that you can't be identified by anything you put on cam ;) Keep yer face out of frame, cover up any tattoos or birthmarks, make sure you don't have the same backdrop as in any of your 'clean' pictures, and then have at it!

    agree with the points he makes, if the fear exist makes sure you cant be identifty from anyelse who might look similiar (FACE!!, tattoos birthmarks or noticable differences in your room from any random persons room) not really hard to make happen keep the shots low and locked on and notice your movement... tattoos are iffy as a ton of people have similar tattoos so its easier to say no that not me...

    I don't have a webcam but I have a program called camstudio that makes it possible to record anything on screen. So in other words, your junk, with face. Webcam "activities" are fine if you want your cock all over the internets but for anyone who's concerned about that, it probably ain't worth the risk.

    So reasonable obfuscation (never get to use that word icon_smile.gif ) of one's appearance is a way to go? What about a fake stache and aviators :p ? does that kill the mood?

    Here's a general rule you should apply to your online behavior: if you would not, and, should not, do it in a public venue, then, don't be an idiot by doing it online.

    Understand, EVERYTHING on The Internet is just a data stream. It's that VERY SIMPLE. Data streams can be recorded, and re-distributed.

    That's the obvious answer to what any clear-thinking person should realize.

    Once something has been broadcast to The Internet, you've lost any control, imagined, or otherwise. That's the facts of the technology.

    Don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar to know this stuff; just have to think for 10 seconds.

    I'm using CamStudio to record this.... :-)

    THAT'S JUST HOW EASY IT IS.

    Kapeesh? More properly spelled, capiche.

    not really sure what your refering to but if you talking about using some of the camera build in features then ... hey its your cam you can do what ever silly things you want with it, each person has difference views on it
    but in the end you get to choice what to do on, it who can see it, and what you show.

    as a added note: i would see it as a compliment if i had happen to be recorded by such a program, not really that serious of a deal to me, if i make it to 90 and find out for year people have been spreading around pictures or webcam streams of me i would be proud, in a way.. lol

    Dude, get a spell checker.

    Once whatever it is has left your computer, it's open to whatever folks choose to do with it, like it, or not.

    The smart money says: if you wouldn't do it in Real Space, then, you're nuts to do it in Cyber Space.

    Well, don't scream that folks are ..... if they think you're an idiot.

    I understand, you do the bare minimum possible. That's very telling, and, of course, folks will form opinions about you based upon that information. Your fault, too.

    I suppose it's just who you are.

    indeed! 'capisce'- usually in the form of a question; the standard Italian form should be "capisci" (second person, informal) or "capisce" (third person, formal). In the American form the last vowel is dropped, but in Italian all vowels are pronounced.
