Editors' Review


WebcamMax is a program that works with your webcam to add new effects and features whenever you video chat or record videos. Although the sound quality could use some work, we liked this flexible little program.

WebcamMax's colorful interface is a bit busy but it's well-organized and easy to use with just a little practice. In fact, a lot of the work is done during installation, when you can choose which programs you want it to be the default Webcam source for. It supports Yahoo! Messenger, Skype, ICQ and other numerous other programs. There are so many special effects on offer that you might not have time to try them all, but they are fun to play around with and it won't take you long to find some favorites. While you video chat, you can add accessories, draw on the screen, and add animation and special frames, just to name a few. We did find that it was easy to get carried away with the special effects, but that just added to the fun. You can also alter the visual appearance of the images picked up from your webcam and add frames, or use your previously recorded videos and images and dress them up as you please. Our microphone volume seemed to be very low in every recording we made, even when it was right next to us, but we'll admit we don't have the highest quality mic.

If you're looking for a tool to jazz up your videos or images, WebcamMax is a feature-rich option that's easy enough for anyone to use.

"Network Killer and process stealer"

The only thing to like about this product is it potential. I see no real value in it.


As a professional technician I had seen this program on many machines to be the main reason for lost performance and network traffic loss. I had to remove the program to get Windows to run properly and to get the network connection back.


Forget about using this product. You will be wasting time and effort. Eventually you will lose computer speed from the start and may even lose network connection.

"The perfect webcam tool"

 |  Version: WebcamMax


Works with all IM's. Can show up to 4 different cameras at one time. Great effects downloadable or make your own. Can work through other webcam applications such as ManyCam or visa vera.


Sound can only come from once source at a time butthen who wants to hear a clatter.


I love this app. Not only can I stream web cams but also stream live captures my desktop and from my TV capture card.
There are other webcam applications around and some are free but none have the flexibility if WebCam Max.
What I really love it the ease of use and that I can show 4 different screens in one. To have one cam on myself, another on say my pets, showing part of my desktop and running a video at once is just brilliant.

"resource hog."

The only pro that i could discren fromthis program is that you can have multiple multiple webcams.


This program is an absolute resource hog. I have a new build with 4g of ram and a quad prcessor and it drags the system to a crawl. Also, when left up using the interface, it randomly stops broadcasting. Dont waste your money....

"Slow, unstable, not worth it."

Lets you do a few cool tricks with the camera when you are leaving a video message or videochatting.


Slows the computer down to a crawl. You can't use the camera in any application without it opening automatically and slowing everything down. The special effects are very poor compared to others I've seen.


If you are desperate for cool camera effects, you might wanna try this but otherwise, steer clear.
