Record developers' page
Record is the basic rich-media capture activity for the laptop. It lets you capture still images, video, and/or audio. It has a simple interface and works in both laptop and ebook mode. An interface for sharing pictures among multi XOs during a picture-taking session is a hallmark of the Record activity.

Using Record with external cameras
If the camera is recognized, a device /dev/video1 will be created. You may need check using Terminal. The internal device is usually /dev/video0, but this is not guaranteed.
To use a external camera, you can apply this patch
diff --git a/glive.py b/glive.py index 9f8c5fa..d2207e7 100644 --- a/glive.py +++ b/glive.py @@ -83,6 +83,7 @@ class Glive: def _detect_camera(self): v4l2src = gst.element_factory_make('v4l2src') + v4l2src.set_property('device', '/dev/video1') if v4l2src.props.device_name is None: return
Supporting more than one camera without a patch is the subject of ticket #4859.
