    "Waste of time.."

    May 6, 2010  |   By rmf919

    Version: Magic Camera 6.4.0

    Pros

    Frame rate selection for play video mode
    Less resource intensive than webcam max
    Nice GUI
    Easy to use

    Cons

    The rest of the product (literally)

    Summary

    I could really care less about using effects, as the only thing I want to be able to do is stream games & movies at a reasonable frame rate. Doing this on any other virtual webcam software other than magic camera seems like a waste of time. Webcam max is too bloated and it causes my CPU to heat up too fast, and the frame rate is nothing to be proud of; and Super webcam only allows a limited frame rate for playing videos. Magic camera used to stream videos quite well, and I never once received a complaint from any of my stream viewers. Then in comes something that ends up plaguing virtually every decent program -- program updates. There is not one decent program that I've used that has not gone to absolute crap because the company felt the need to change something on their program; not once. And frankly, I think that's where magic camera is headed. First off, right out of the box, if you try to stream a certain area of your desktop, it gives you an error message saying that you need to download a codec. The website provided makes everything appear to be fine, but it's really not. You download the codec, follow the instructions given to configure the codec you've just downloaded and the same error message pops up. You can't stream specific video files, broadcast your own webcam -- anything. The software is basically unusable (for me, at least; and I've tested this on two computers). I'm thoroughly disappointed (and frustrated) with this new update and I hope shining morning takes the steps to make this software what it once was.

    "Well worth checking out (I use it on XP_SP3)"

    March 10, 2010  |   By L_Scott

    Version: Magic Camera 6.4.0

    Pros

    Magic Camera was a great treat compaired to programs like webcam which I still like. There are a lot of well thought out addins you can use and being a user of CamFrog Pro I found it integrated well. It also works with MSN Messenger Live.

    Cons

    Has various plugins to create different effects but you can not remove the plugins unless you actually visit the catagory the plugins are and clear them. There have been times where some of the plugins caused computer to freeze where I had to reboot.

    Summary

    I decided to register it, that is how much I liked it. I'm using XP Pro SP3 and generally have little or no problems with Magic Camera. There have been times though where I have managed to lock up my computer using several plugins at the same time. Other plugins can be very memory intensive and can really drag down the speed of the computer. YES it does work well with Camfrog Pro (I use the latest versions) and with MSN Messenger Live.
    The only other thing which I consider a problem the plugin definitions and discriptions. Thy are a bit vague at times.

    "Terrible Software"

    September 24, 2009  |   By IceDragonAL

    Version: Magic Camera 6.4.0

    Pros

    Lots of effects, multi-cams option

    Cons

    - Can't get it to work with camfrog
    - Hard to add/remove the effects live
    - Does not remember your playlist
    - Crashes easily
    - Lack of documentation
    - Can't play real media videos despite codec installed

    Summary

    Coming from webcammax, I was caught by its multi-cam feature. But nothing seems to work properly and easily like webcammax. Sorry but I am going to pass on this software for now, maybe check on it again next year.

    Version: Magic Camera 6.4.0

    Pros

    It is the best virtual webcam tool I ever used, with full functionality and some exclusive features than others. Another reason is mc integrates webcam effects,webcam record,webcam splitter,virtual webcam into single software. It's much easier for me

    Cons

    Do not know yet.

    Summary

    My experience on this software is good.
