    Sorry if this is a really simple question - but I'm wanting to film a clip of myself on the MacbookPro, using inbuilt camera.

    Whats a good application to do this? It would be good to save file as .MOV, .AVI etc.

    Many thanks

    :)

    Photo Booth, QuickTime Player and iMovie can record from the built-in camera.
    They normally save it as MOV or MP4 using the H.264 codec, AVI is an old container format, that is not supported, but any current and four year old computer can play back MP4 files easily. For MOV QuickTime Player or VLC Player is needed.
