ManyCam Mac Is Currently Not Compatible with Mac OS 10.10.3

April 10th, 2015

01

We want to warn our Mac users that unfortunately ManyCam Mac is still not compatible with Mac OS 10.10.3, which was officially released this week. Our team has been working on fixing the compatibility issue on the beta version but were not able to find a solution in time for the official release.

Several users have reported kernel panics in ManyCam when upgrading to 10.10.3.  Please make sure to uninstall ManyCam in safe mode and reboot your computers.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and want to assure you that our team is working hard on rectifying the compatibility issue, and are in contact with Apple so this can be solved as soon as possible.

We will notify our users as soon as we have a fix.

Sincerely,

ManyCam Team

 

How to add an animated GIF image to ManyCam

March 18th, 2015

Animated GIF

Many of our users ask us if they can create animated GIF effects and logos when using our Custom Effect Creation tool on our website. Unfortunately effects can only be created from PNG/JPG images, however we do have an easy way for you to add an animated GIF to your live broadcast by using the picture-in-picture mode.

Here’s how you do it:

  • In the Image tab, select the second Picture-in-Picture mode.
  • Add your animated GIF as your video source by selecting Media Files.
  • You can then move the animated GIF or logo anywhere you want on the screen.

It’s as easy as that!

Make sure to check out our How-To videos to learn how to use other cool ManyCam features.

ManyCam Mac not compatible with Beta Version of Mac OS 10.10.3

March 5th, 2015

A few users have let us know that ManyCam Mac is not compatible with the latest update from Apple – Mac OS 10.10.3. The system crashes and only removing the ManyCam Mac application in safe mode will restore the system.

Our team is investigating this case and are working on a way to fix it. In the mean time we suggest that our Mac users either don’t install the latest Mac OS 10.10.3 or uninstall ManyCam before doing so.

Thank you to the users who have reported this to us. We will notify everyone as soon as we have a fix!

 

UPDATE: Please note that Mac OS 10.10.3 is a beta version.

Antivirus False Positives Reports for ManyCam

January 29th, 2015

We’ve received a few comments from users saying that their antivirus program is falsely flagging ManyCam as malware or as an unwanted program. These false positive reports happen occasionally, where your antivirus thinks a program is harmful when it is actually safe.

One way to know if your antivirus is giving you a false positive report is to use VirusTotal. VirusTotal lets you scan a downloaded file with 45+ antivirus programs so you can compare the results. If most antivirus programs report a virus, then you know the program is malicious. If only a few antivirus programs report a problem, then it is likely a false positive.

Also, many antivirus companies are now classifying toolbars as PUA (Potentially Unwanted Software), PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program), or simply as Toolbar. All toolbars are classified as such even if they are not actually malware. From time to time, we can bundle a toolbar in our product, which we know for a fact doesn’t contain any malware. If you do not wish to install the toolbar please make sure to un-check the boxes or click on “Decline” in the dedicated offer page in the installer.

It is also important to make sure you are not downloading any ManyCam cracks, as these versions can contain Trojans and malicious viruses that can harm your computer. Not only do ManyCam cracks contain viruses, but they don’t even work.

Make sure to keep your ManyCam software secure and download directly from our website.
