For anyone who uses several instant messenger programs to communicate with friends, using a webcam while chatting over the Internet on multiple apps at the same time can be a hassle. However, with a tool like Manycam you can easily solve that problem. This software solution helps you use the webcam on several chatting tools at the same time and, more importantly, it also enables you to add some shiny effects to the image you're streaming over the Internet.
Manycam has a rather nice looking interface and thanks to the well-thought layout, it can be easily used by beginners and professional users alike.
The application has tons of effects, regardless if we're talking about objects you can place over the image, backgrounds, face accessories, date and time or drawings. A great feature of Manycam we discovered during our tests was its ability to help users personalize the camera image by drawing directly onto it.
In order to customize the software's settings, you can individually configure the audio and video source options. Another nice addition to the functions list is the support for playlists that you can create by adding videos that can be broadcast instead of a live feed from the webcam.
In just a few words, Manycam can work with basically every tool that supports a webcam, no matter if we're thinking about Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Skype, Paltalk, Camfrog, AIM and many other IM apps.
All things considered, this utility can prove quite useful for anyone who needs to use several instant messengers with a single webcam and stream the same video and audio over multiple applications. The very strong feature pack and ease of use recommend Manycam as one of the software solutions that deserve at least a try.
