    Question Video recording software that will record for days

    Hello. I'm after some software that will record over the weekend so pretty much just over 3 days worth. Need to record nature stuff. I have a sony cam with USB stream output connected to a laptop - pretty much like a webcam. 30GB free on hard disk.
    Don't mind if it splits the file to chunks - that would be better for processing, and some control over file size/bitrate too ideally.

    Tried VLC - file size way to big and no options to change. Also tried camtasia - didn't work at all with the camera - must be a driver issue.

    So any ideas guys?

    You would be better using a security recorder no problem with any of the above and it will only record on movement.

    A DVR security unit would be ideal, but this was a last minute request for an event this weekend.
    In a sorta compromise though I've tried webcamXP which has CCTV like features - good so far. Fingers crossed it works OK.
