    QuickTime Broadcaster can record video and set up parameters for encoding and such.

    It will record to disk so as long as you have free disk space it will keep recording.

    If you have Leopard, Photobooth can record video from your iSight. I feel like he was using a "future" version of Photobooth in I Am Legend. Quicktime Pro can do that as well. Why not use iMovie, though?

    For possibly better quality, any MiniDV camera attached via firewire will interface with iMovie or Quicktime Pro.

    I Mac and my guitar

    Please help

    I want to record myself playing guitar. Photo booth works but it dampens the guitar - meaning, there is no ring, reverb etc.. Basically, it sounds like crap. Does anyone know how to record a live performance on the Mac, and make it sound good?

    Sounds like you need to research on HOW TO RECORD LIVE MUSIC, not
    "how to record a live performance on the Mac, and make it sound good"

    On any computer, you would need:

    Guitar amp, USB audio input to mac. It's easier on a Mac.
    griffintechnology makes products like these.
