Editors' Review

Usually if you use your iSight camera with one program, you can't use it with another. ManyCam Virtual Webcam helps change that as soon as you install it. This handy app removes many iSight camera restrictions and provides multiple ways to enhance the overall Webcam chat experience, with some helpful (and some silly) features you'll absolutely enjoy.

After installing the application, ManyCam takes control of your iSight camera: it will become the video source of the chat programs you use, such as Yahoo Messenger or Skype. Now, if you want to make your video chat more fun, you don't have to select the video in your chat program; instead, you just select ManyCam, and the party begins. We tested with multiple applications, and the first reaction of many was, "Wow, how did you do that?" The reason: ManyCam provides a list of effects you can add to your video chat, and since the camera has you in its focus, it will apply the filter on you or the background, depending on the effects you select.

Using ManyCam is very easy; it provides a simple and uncluttered interface where you can select all the effects you want to apply to your video. The most fun part is that the application uses facial recognition technology, so if you apply an effect such as Vampire face or Carnival mask it will cover your face and follow your movements, which is fun.

However, ManyCam has flaws, too, maybe the biggest of which is that you can't use it at the same time on Yahoo Messenger and Skype -- neither is it compatible with PhotoBooth or iMovie.

Overall, we liked how ManyCam adds its effects to your video, adding fun elements to the conversation, and we liked its user-friendly interface, which applies/removes the magic with a single click.

"Fun and functional"

December 23, 2010  |  By The_Defenestrator

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 1.0.41

Pros

Amusing free utility that does some fun effects that should have been included in Photo Booth.

Cons

Runs a little clunky, and really slows down any other running apps. And could that ridiculous watermark be *any* bigger?

Summary

This could be fun for children who would like fun effects for Photo Booth, and I can see some people using it for chatting. I'm probably going to delete it.

"Good introduction to a fun video conferencing concept."

November 01, 2010  |  By trilarkielf

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 1.0.41

Pros

A good "basic" program if you can't find other options. (Better than CamTwist - couldn't get that one to work at all!)

Cons

Doesn't quit properly. Slows down the camera. Navigating ManyCam within a chat is fiddly. Would like to be better quality - perhaps even be able to sync speech with animations.
