Default Laptop + webcam = DIY dashcam?

Anyone done this?

Any idea how much data per second/minute/hour a 720p or 1080p webcam would use while capturing?

Or the system requirements to record without too much lag?

I have a dual core netbook with 4gb ddr3, an ati HD 6250 video card, HDMI output...

1080p playback on the netbook itself is smooth, with a constant 59FPS in windows media player (VLC is very laggy)

Hard drive is about 320gb. At a recording/capturing rate of 1gb per minute, or ~16mb per second, I would be able to store about 5 hours of video.

Any insight on anything related to anything I've mentioned is appreciated.

Why not get a car dock for your phone and record with that. I do it all the time and it works great. Like having a gopro on ur dash.

Best cam i have is my ipod touch 4th gen, and its limited to 8gb, with nothing on it (and i typically have it full). Although i suppose i can just record in short interals and delete if nothing happens.

Long story short. Buy something that's meant for that. Webcams are for you to Skype and show ur balls to people at ur house.
