ManyCam: Facebook Video Chat & Google + Hangouts

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

It’s easy to use ManyCam with Facebook’s new Video Chat app, and the new Google Plus Hangouts system.

To use ManyCam with Facebook Video Chat go to the bottom left of the video window and choose “ManyCam Virtual Webcam” as your video source.  You are now broadcasting through ManyCam.

While using Google Plus go to the “settings” at the bottom and choose the ManyCam Virtual Webcam.  Do not choose the other ManyCam source or it won’t work.  Next press “Save”.

If you still don’t seem to be broadcasting from ManyCam be sure you choose your video source in the ManyCam software.  Open ManyCam then go to the “Sources” tab and choose the source you want to use like your webcam, a video, or something else.

Thanks for using ManyCam!

ManyCam 2.6.55 Released (Windows)

Monday, May 16th, 2011

ManyCam 2.6.55 for Windows is now available for download!

This new ManyCam version fixes a problem some users were having with Skype, MSN, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Video Chat, and several other applications where the ManyCam source would not appear.  Now ManyCam may have two sources available in some applications.  If you have a choice of two ManyCam sources try using the default and if it doesn’t work for you then you can try to use the secondary source.  If neither ManyCam source will work for you please post to our Blog or email us what operating system you are using, what ManyCam version you are using, and what application you are using that won’t work with ManyCam along with its version.  To see what version of ManyCam you are using right click the icon in the bottom right notification area and choose “about”.

This new version also has many small improvements and bug fixes.

Download ManyCam 2.6.55 Website Passwords Reset

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Due to the possibility of a security breach we have reset all website passwords.  When logging on to the site please click “forgot your password” or “password resent” to get your secure updated password.

If you logon to with Facebook or Twitter then your password never transversed our servers at all, so it is secure.  If you registered a nickname on and you use the same password other places, for example your Email account you should change your password in those other places as soon as possible.

It’s possible that no breach occurred but we felt it was better to be safe than sorry and let you know.

Please note that only a tiny subset of our users registered at because website registration is optional to use our software or download effects.  If you use our software and never registered on our website or if you logged on with Twitter or Facebook then this problem does not apply to you.
