Accessing or locating webcam on your Windows OS can be pretty difficult and sometimes you may not even find it. Thus making it absolutely necessary to install a third-party software to be able to use it. ManyCam solves such problem and gives you access to a couple of nice features to enable you enjoy video chat etc.
Without Manycam installed you are unable to use your Webcam in more than one application at a time. This program solves this problem for you by splitting one video stream into several video streams. All you need to do is to choose Manycam virtual Webcam as the video source in your webcam applications. You can also add some features to the video stream by using ManyCam (for example, funny animations, time and text). Right click the Manycam icon in your bottom right tray to access these features.
ManyCam has some nice features including allowing you to broadcast quality videos with your choice of background image and appear to be anywhere. The program also boasts of a feature that enables you to add amazing effects and custom graphics; change your face, eyes, add accessories, and more.
ManyCam is pretty to use — but it’s a shareware, so be ready to spend $29.95 for a Standard version.
