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.

"Great, but installs Ask toolbar without permission"

May 28, 2012  |  By sung3217

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.0.68

Pros

It worked out of the box and is the solution for mirroring my cam feed.

Cons

Lowered resolution, installs Ask toolbar without permission with each update, nags for updates.

Summary

ManyCam is a great piece of free software. It has served me well. But I am giving it 1 star because it is complete rubbish that with each update (and it nags you to update each time) it installs the Ask toolbar regardless of whether or not you uncheck the options for the Ask toolbar, clearly indicating you don't want it.

"Long time user and this new version is great!"

May 16, 2012  |  By RUupTOit

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.0.68

Pros

This program has made web camming a better experience. This program lets you force Higher Definition from your camera, You can play a video from your hard drive for those viewing your cam and type text messages that are scrolled over your image. You can record videos through your web cam and upload to YouTube which are very good quality. You can also take snapshots

The picture in picture feature lets you place up to 4 different images on the screen at once. For example ... Your web cam in one window, A video from your hard drive in another, a still photo in another and a second web cam that captures you from a different angle in the last.

Cons

These are not cons really, its just that i don't use the special effects and can't comment on those

Summary

I highly recommend ManyCam, It delivers everything promised.

"works good, bit too complex, lots of affects gone"

May 07, 2012  |  By Bigbrfother38WimK

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.0.68

Pros

Works good, no errors

Cons

Lots of effects from the past have disappeared on the site,
I am missing the huge database of objects and effects in the past.
Beside contrary to the past more attention should be directed
to creating an 18+ naughty/sexy/sex effects and objects database.
I even think there is an commercial market for that.
I hope an bigger user database entails from this again.
It is a shame that objects and effectmost of the times do NOT adjust to webcam picture format

Summary

Good product and as soon as I have the money I will buy it, but I insist that you will keep develloping effects and objects to make again more fun in the future

"Once upon a time it was great."

May 02, 2012  |  By eezee_cnet

 |  Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.0.68

Pros

Looked nice. New video and audio features.

Cons

Has become nagware. Pro, pro, pro.
No thanks, bro.

Summary

It's a shame to see a nice and friendly program go to waste.

I can recognize the work that has been put into the all new functions and I can understand why they did it the way they did. But, understanding that doesn't mean I'll be using it.

From a nice little free program it has become a behemoth of nagware. All the new cool fun stuff went into 'pro', and some former free functions went out the window (get 'pro' to get them back again, of course). These tactics are not something I get excited about anymore, it's more like 'meh...'. I've travelled this path many times before on other programs and it never ended well.

I wish the manycam team all the best, but from here our paths will go different ways. I'll be using the older version untill it becomes abandonware. Thanks for all the fish.
