how to use HP webcam 50 while offline for taking pictures and/or making videos?

Hello, I would greatly appreciate learning if my HP webcam 50 can be used while offline for taking pictures and/or making videos?  If this is indeed possible, can the procedure for using the webcam while offline be outlined.  Thank you.

What do you mean by offline? Not connected to a computer like a standalone digital camera?

Hello.  By 'offline' I mean 'not connected to the internet'.  Can the built-in HP webccam 50 be used for taking pictures and/or videos while not connected to the internet?  Thank you.

Yes it can. The user interface software such as Youcam has a "capture" button which can capture and store still shots or video clips on the hard drive.

Thank you very much for your reply.  Are you aware of a reliable (and safe) site to download this software from and the approximate cost of this software?  Thanks again.

It might be available here for free. The name of the publisher of the software is Cyberlink and I am sure you can get it for $30-40 on their site but it is offered for several computer models here as a free download.
