Default Video recording E Kit covers

Hi guys, wondered if anyone could help me with this.
I want to upload some videos of me jamming to some CD tracks on my Yamaha DTX kit. I am going to purchase a USB mixer (probably a Behringer Xenyx) so the stereo outs of my DTX will go straight into that (it also has 4 x XLRs for future recording of my acoustic kit). I have two queries that I can't get my head around however:
1. I want to try and record the video just with the laptop's built-in webcam if I can.
2. I want to play along to tracks and mix both audio sources together and sync with the video.
How would I set this up to record the video and audio whilst simultaneously playing and recording the backing track?
What (ideally free) software will I need?

Thanks for any help/advice
Cheers
Martin

If you're willing to part with some cash for a Zoom Q3 HD camera, I've found that's the easiest way to record vids when using e-drums (and no need to synch up video and audio as it's all recorded at once).
I simply plug in a cable from the "Line In" input of the camera to the headphone input on my module then dial in a good mix of the song playing on the iPod with the e-drums and it's done.

All the vids in this thread were done with the Zoom (please note that I'm not running Superior Drummer or anything, just stock module sounds so don't expect stellar drum sound quality)!

Andy (Keep It Simple) uses the same camera I believe if you've seen any of his gig footage.

Thanks mate I will take a look. I haven't seen any of Andys videos as I'm quite new here.
