Editors' Review

ManyCam lets you operate multiple Webcams simultaneously, including both real and virtual Webcams, and customize them with a variety of effects and filters like flames and cartoon eyes. ManyCam can keep multiple video chat sessions open, monitor home security cameras, stream videos, and display still images when you want to chat but don't want to show yourself. ManyCam 4.0 is freeware; a Pro upgrade is available.

Pros

Easy setup: ManyCam more or less sets itself up, identifying and accessing our video feeds, including our live Webcam, and displaying them in a busy but feature-filled interface.

Broadcasting: ManyCam lets you display multiple chat sessions or send one feed simultaneously to multiple chat clients, or screencast your desktop with live narration and onscreen drawing and effects.

More, more, more: The Effects tab has Filters, Distortions, Backgrounds, Borders, Overlays, Objects, Face Accessories, Emoticons, and more. We could add audio, timestamps, text, transitions, playlists, and more. Need more? It's a download away.

Cons

Somebody's watching me: Be careful when using ManyCam (or any cam). It bears repeating: Be aware when your Webcam is on and broadcasting your private life to the Web-Wide World!

Bottom line

ManyCam 4.0 is an excellent multiple Webcam manager, but it's also a security center, a broadcast studio, and a post-production facility in one free and easy-to-use program.

"Doesn't work with Omegle, despite what they claim."

March 15, 2015  |  By OFenby

 |  Version: ManyCam 4.1.1.4

Pros

None that I can see since, despite what they claim on their blog, the latest version is NOT compatible with Yosemite.

Cons

It doesn't work on Mac Yosemite. I think that's a pretty big con. Also, when you download the app, it changes all your search preference setting to MyStart. Very deceptive and annoying.

Summary

Why oh why hasn't someone come up with an alternative to Manycam? Their customer service is so poor and the app so inferior, surely someone can offer a better version?

"Keeps running covertly in the background"

February 20, 2015  |  By BetterShizzy

 |  Version: ManyCam 4.1.0.12

Pros

It's a great idea to incorporate other cameras.

Cons

Cannot adjust size of the screen. I'd like to be able to have a big picture. But, this version just changes the resolution in a tiny portion of the window. Expanding the window to the full-screen mode doesn't help either.

Does not show up when switching applications with command-tab. And it seems to keep running in the background after you exit the program. I found out when I went to install a newer version. I was asked to close ManyCam. At that point, it didn't show up in the Activity Monitor, either. Strange? With all the malware out there, I don't trust applications that run in the background.

"Installer splash screen terminated install with error"

November 08, 2014  |  By miceberg

 |  Version: ManyCam 4.0.110.10

Pros

I did not have the oppty to evaluate PRO's

Cons

The program installer (not to be confused with the download.CNET.com DOWNLOADER which *Precedes* the actual installation of the software) halted my installation with a pop-up error message stating that it " ..could not access the requested page" ( ? ? )

Summary

I don't know what the explanation for the experience discussed in this review actually is. I can't think of any software conflict which would cause an error message like that, since I was only running Firefox, and have done countless downloads and installations (including from right here at download.CNET.com) of this kind. Your guess is as good as mine.

"Auto-protect blocked this Virus."

October 10, 2014  |  By terry.robotham

 |  Version: ManyCam 4.0.110.10

Pros

It has a nice description and by the number of downloads it looks as though this program is trusted by many people however....

Cons

Around 78% through my first attempt at the installation Norton Anti-Virus finds and blocks a file in the temp directory: c:\users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp\disEE99.tmp\wSetup.exe
Then ManyCam pops up this message...'Error: Unable to launch the main installation package. Please try to re-run this program. The program will now exit. The installation is also aborted. To make sure this wasn't just a coincidence I attempted to install the ManyCam software again ... Norton blocks the virus again and a window pops up saying: "Windows cannot find 'C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp\disEE99.tmp\wSetup.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Summary

Failed to pass my anti-virus cleanly and I refuse to disable anti-virus just to install. Please clean up the installer or remove from the site.

September 13, 2014  |  By shardchan

 |  Version: ManyCam 4.0.109

Pros

Still allows you to stream your webcam to multiple locations I suppose.

Cons

But, I'm not going to use a program that watermarks my content.

Summary

Don't bother.
