========================================
It's an older program but if your system has a webcam,
it's possible that someone thought it could be used with
that.

Basically it is used to edit/convert/encode video and
audio files.  Also it can do screen capture.

If you do want an encoder, the latest version from Microsoft is Expression Encoder 4 which is a free download.


The free version includes the following: 

  • Multi-core encoding
  • Crop/scale/de-interlace operation
  • Multi-clip editing
  • Up to 10 minutes of screen capture
  • Multi-channel audio import and export
  • Photo or video overlay (good for picture-in-picture, photo insets or logo/watermarks)

While support for WME 9 ended in 2011, you can still use it. Just don't expect any patches or updates.

WME 9 is also used to record live video and audio from any source installed on your computer. While we are now getting rid of WME9 in favor of newer software, it has served as our only capture on 24 boxes recording live classroom video and audio in HD since 2009.

MS expressions encoder 4 is a great replacement.
