I'd love it if I could ask for help with Android development. No coding section or such it seems

It's the poor quality of the built-in camera of your laptop that is causing the problem. Not the software. The camera was intended for facial recognition only. If you want better quality buy a remote camera.

The Windows Camera you refer to is an app, it is using the built-in webcam (shown in the device manager) on your computer.  The webcam needs an app to help take pictures, record/stream videos, etc.  Microsoft has built an app called Camera which is available by default in Windows 10.

Thank you, Winchester! I'm really sorry for my silly questions, but I would like to understand some things. :)


Editing software will help, but moving the quality to a higher resolution isn't going to improve the camera.

This is a older software from MS that isn't supported any longer but works well in WIN 10, Windows movie maker.


In fact, I'm not talking about just a bad video quality, that needs to get better. It seems that the video is corrupted, with little squares that dissolve the image. Also, sometimes the video gets stucked, while the sound is OK. This is only when I have the resolution on 1280x720p. When I go to 384x216, no corrupted video, no problems, except the low resolution. The strange is that there was no problem a year ago, since I have many good videos during July 2016, as well as years before. I'm thinking of the Anniversary update and if it caused problems to the camera, but I don't know.

I tried the free version of ManyCam. The resolution is lower than 1280x720, but surely much better than 384x216.  I'm not sure if I will continue with this, as I prefer the Windows app. I hope, there will be a solution.

To be honest you aren't going to get a high definition quality out a laptop web camera. There for basic use such as skpe, etc. The older the laptop model, the lower quality you are going to get. You can find external cameras that are higher quality.

You can find external cameras that are higher quality, even 1080P, but there is no guarantee  it's going to be better. If I was going to buy one I would do some research, and if you look most will not have high reviews.

Examples Here:

Another thing to ask. This camera is the Windows camera, downloaded from the store. Was this camera installed in my computer from the beginning? My computer has its own integrated webcam (shown in device manager), but I can't find anywhere a software related to it, so I can try it. Are these two different things or it is just my computer's camera?

Panos ...

There are other webcam software options besides Windows Camera, some free, some not.  While Camera is easy to use, more advanced users will be disappointed with the simplicity, and will want more manual controls and settings.  You might try different software and see if it makes a difference.

You might also look into external cameras to use for your video purposes, they are fairly inexpensive but much higher quality than your built-in one.

Hello.

I'm writing here, continuing this topic, as nothing changed since I started it.

The problem is that there is a bad video when I record with high definition options (1280x720p). The video is good (as good it can be with this resolution) when the resolution is 384x216p/30fps.
