    Are you shifting focus away from Photo Booth? If you do, it will stop recording.

    solution: QuickTime Broadcaster

    To record Movies with your iSight-Cam use the free app QuickTime Broadcaster. Its great
    - its free
    - it lets you record small lowres movies or high qualitiy movies
    - you can stream movies over internet but also save them directly to your harddisk.
    read this to learn about the settings for harddisk recording: (the most important settings are "Transmission," which should be set to "Manual Unicast," and "Address," which should be set to By entering these settings, you're telling Broadcaster to save to hard disc instead of transmitting over the Internet.)

    download the app here:
