Embedded Webcam in SnagIt

Mini Mirror is a recently released Chrome App created by +MauroSmokybobSolcia. It basically does one thing and does it well. It embeds a webcam on your screen and it stays put even when you load another window or app on top of it. It basically allows you to keep webcam always on top and move it anywhere on the screen. It appears the borderless mode does not work with Chrome OS.

This allows a screencasting app such as SnagIt for Chrome to record the embedded webcam while capturing a webpage or app. I think the quality of the webcam frame rate is noticeably higher than the default camera app.
