Is there a script or flash app that we can run one of our pages that allows a visitor to click, open up their webcam, record a brief video, and then automatically upload to us?

(Similar to how one can record a quick webcam video on Facebook, minus the display portion.)

We want to use this for recording testimonials directly from our site. I know there are paid services for this that have elaborate features, but I just want something cheap and quick.

There is a toolset called imagekit that would support this, I believe.
www.imagekit.com
You would have to do a little coding, though.

Use the url below to record from your webcamera. This is completely open source solution.
In the example it is getting save locally using FileReference. Instead use FileReference to save the data on to a server as flv and they may play it back later.
