4 Good tool, but almost too simple. I really wanted to change the microphone for video / webcam recording but couldn't. Ended up recording audio seperatly with Audacity and merging video and audio together with Kdenlive

5 For those having the problem - There was an error playing video from webcam -> Try gradually lowering the capture resolution. The bug is when capture resolution from program setting is over the capabilities of your device. Cheese->Preferences->Photo resolution-> set for example 640x480 -> Close -> restart Cheese; If you see this error again: Cheese->Preferences->Photo resolution-> set for example 640x360 -> Close -> restart Cheese; And so on. The idea is to set the capture resolution of the program to match your device capabilities.
