Editors' Review

Say you use both ICQ and Camfrog for video chat, and you'd like to keep both open at the same time. That doesn't sound like an unreasonable request, but your Webcam may feel differently about it. Don't argue with it; download ManyCam. This free app replicates your camera signal and feeds it to any and all of your video chat apps simultaneously. It starts automatically with your Webcam when you start your chat app, and it feeds streams to new apps as you open them. No more conflicts, at least with your Webcam (your cranky uncle is your problem). ManyCam works with most clients.

ManyCam is mostly automatic in setup; we knew the program was configured when we saw our Webcam feed in ManyCam's Live Studio Mode display. ManyCam's user interface is anchored by a Firefox-style start button that opens an extensive main menu (including Help file) plus a tabbed toolbar with entries for Video, Audio, and more. Under the Audio and Video tabs we found submenus for configuring Effects and Sources as well as extras such as playlists, text over video, draw over video, and camera and screen effects. ManyCam does more than replicate your video stream: it also includes lots of great audio and video effects that you can apply, such as ridiculously addictive cartoon eyes in the Face Accessories as well as Objects, Filters, and Background Effects like flames. A series of thumbnail previews help you choose effects. ManyCam's integrated Image Settings use sliders to adjust color balance.

We clicked Sources to configure ManyCam with our chat apps. The program correctly identified our camera's specs, but we could change it to other sources, such as Movies, Still Images, and even our Desktop. Changing sources is easy; for example, we quickly browsed to an image file and selected it as our source display -- a handy feature for voice chat since you can display a logo, playlist, and more when you can't use video (or prefer not to). Best of all, we could keep multiple chat apps up and running with our current feed. ManyCam handled it all and then some.

"I find it very helpful, yet it slows down my computer."

July 29, 2010  |  By MCtheGirL

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 2.5.48

Pros

I can add simple effects to my live broadcast on blogtv and many people like the effects, including myself. Easy to use, easy to show how to use, easy easy easy!
The simpleness of the organization of where things should be, if great.

Cons

When you use it to broadcast what's on your screen, it slows everything down and my mouse cursor flickers on and off. It's the main reason why I needed it, but also the main reason to why I don't use it much anymore.

Summary

If you need simple effects or need to broadcast what's on your screen, then it's worth the download. I recommended it to some of my friends already, same experience.

"Good but be careful"

July 16, 2010  |  By wolverine486

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 2.5.48

Pros

I like the effects you can add to your webcam. I wish Logitech's software offered the option to add text to your video.

Cons

Sometimes when I right click the icon in the system tray and choose exit, it crashes my PC. It brings up the shutdown option.

Summary

If they fix the bug with closing the program, then the software is pretty good.

"Good, stable video converter--and it's free!"

July 05, 2010  |  By rsbeaver

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 2.5.48

Pros

Easy to use with an intuitive interface. Can convert many formats, and is perfect for taking a saved and edited video file and "streaming" the file to sites like Justin.tv

Cons

No way that I've found to set quality for the streaming output. Sometimes the output has very low frame rate and the quality can suffer.

"Does precisely what it say's"

July 03, 2010  |  By hp4d

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 2.5.48

Pros

Small concise product, if you look at all instructions when loading you can avoid any add ons. People whom say that other things are loaded, are not reading when installing, if you get add ons, it's your own fault.

Cons

Everything works well with windows 7

Summary

Found none other than logo on all snaps and visible during use.
