A new YouTube video of the leaked Windows 8 M1 build circulating on the Internet. The video demonstrates a webcam UI for configuring webcam settings, application settings, and allows users to take timed or instant still shots and short video clips.

"The application has a Metro-esque feel to it, with a dark background, spacious UI controls, and large fonts. The settings for the app allow one to specify a webcam, audio source, video resolution, frame rate, and an audio recording level. On another tab, users can let the webcam driver automatically determine picture settings, or they can manually adjust the brightness, focus, exposure, and zoom levels, as well as the flicker refresh rate."

"Users may snap a video or still shot by clicking on one of three icons to the right of the application. In either mode, the user is offered to keep or throw away the captured output. It also appears that basic frame cropping functionality is there, in addition to setting a zoom level. For still shots, users may crop the preview output before saving.
