    "Abysmal Cam"

    February 21, 2013  |   By promytius

    Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.1.43

    Pros

    I really can't think of many - it WAS in English... it did DL and install!

    Cons

    I'm not exactly a tyro when it comes to PCs or webcams, and this is software you can safely skip - you will miss nothing. The program as it downloads is empty of effects, unclear as to procedures, not intuitive, and like the growing "FREE" MMOs you still got to pay to play.I downloaded some free effects, but they were not available when I ran the program and I did not see install instructions for them. Mostly the program is designed to get you to BUY the PRO version, making "free" a freely interpreted concept.

    Summary

    Difficult to comprehend; equally difficult to use successfully. Bottom line: DON'T bother.

    "frustrating"

    February 11, 2013  |   By fannyfernackerpanz

    Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.0.80

    Pros

    it's mildly amusing to play with the effects and take snaps of yourself

    Cons

    There is a huge problem as it will not record sounds so if you want to upload a video onto youtube and say something, or make a video blog, you'll capture the video but it'll be silent.

    Summary

    hundreds of thousands of people have issues with sound recording with manycam. A google search shows this and there is apparently no resolution. I've spent 2 days trying one thing and another all to no avail. The best part of manycam for me will be uninstalling it!

    "Too Unstable"

    February 7, 2013  |   By Richard_HC

    Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.1.41

    Pros

    Older free versions work well but with limited features.

    Cons

    Persistent hangs with the paid version on both my computers (Win7 64Pro laptop and Win7 64Ultimate workstation). Very disappointing for $50 software

    Summary

    I bought the Pro version as I'd been happy with the older version (2.49) of Manycam I'd been using and wanted the features of Manycam Pro. Unfortunately the $50 was wasted as the program hangs and crashes if you try to use the Pro features. This occurs pretty much the same on both my computers Both computers are fast machines (i5 and i7 and both have plenty of RAM - 16GB on the workstation). I'm afraid I don't hold out much hope that the pro version will be much use to anyone with a Win7 64 bit OS.

    Updated on Feb 7, 2013

    Just re-read the review, given that the Editor gave this SW a far higher rating than the users have and I now wonder if he/she actually tested the Pro features?

    "INSTALLS TOOLBARS & CRASHES COMPUTER"

    January 1, 2013  |   By Markus644

    Version: ManyCam Virtual Webcam 3.1.21

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    After installation, my computer crashed and wouldn't restart. Eventually it did restart, whereupon I found that A) This program had installed a toolbar I didn't ask for, and B) It won't let you save video in a usable format without paying money to upgrade to the pro version.

    Summary

    Absolute garbage.
