    You may want to try to reinstall the web camera drivers and software.

    Find your model (look on the bottom of your laptop for the exact model number)
    -Then download drivers and software for your laptop.
    -Once that is downloaded uninstall the software on your laptop
    -Reboot your computer
    -Reinstall the software and the drivers again

    Then test out the software and let me know if you are still having problems with it freezing.

    Check for a software update for the web camera software you are using. Otherwise try a different program such as
    Windows Live Movie Maker 2011:
