ManyCam 2.6.25 Released (Windows)

ManyCam 2.6.25 is now available for download.  This new ManyCam update allows the ability to give a custom name to the ManyCam video source plus it has many small fixes and stability enhancements.

If you want to give the ManyCam video source a custom name you can do so by right clicking the ManyCam icon in the bottom right notification area of windows and choosing “Custom Video Source”.  To change back to the normal video source name right click ManyCam again and uncheck “enable custom video source” under the same window.

Be sure you exit all webcam applications you are currently using before changing the source name.  If you are using a web-based webcam system like Youtube you may need to refresh your browser before using the new ManyCam source name.

Thanks for using ManyCam and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.

    how about a mac update been over a year now

  2. This has always been a wonderful program, version 2.6 goes even farther. My family in the UK really appreciate it.

    It would be of enormous advantage to me if ManyCam had a “Configuration Save/Load” button. I use many effects, camera settings, PIP etc. and it takes quite a time for me to set them up each time I have to reboot windowsXP. Any chance you could do a myname.cfg file for it?

    I DLed the v2.6 that was realease in december (2.6.25 i believe?) so as long as thats the newest version i believe i have. I DLed it from Download.manycam.com on the 12/15/2010, so as long as the DL from the site is up to date then yes.

    It would be nice if, when we have a movie file playing as a source, we could set the driver the audio plays through. Theres a program called Virtual Audio Cable that allows you to make virtual cables, and I’ve managed to get manycam to play the videos output through the input of a virtual cable.

    What would be better is if we could create a dedicated mic driver to stream the sound through, but that would require modifying the audio driver cards.

    Ok, i thought I would update anyone reading this. Manycam support team found a way to fix my problem (not sure if i will be the only one besides the guy that said he as well had this problem, but if any one does hope this helps :) )

    So, The problem was that the display output for my manycam was about 1/16th the size of the maximum screen, and when i tried using it, all you would see is a small box surrounded by black. I tried deleting many cam and reinstalling (both manually through the control panels ‘uninstall’ option, and by allowing manycam itself to do so) and neither of these worked. What I had to do was use the ‘Uninstall Manycam’ program, and click to “delete many cam settings.

    Hope this helps any who struggle with this problem :)

    I have tried everything listed here that was relevant I can not get the new manycam 2.6.25 to work correctly on my pc. I am using win 7 64 bit. I have removed all traces of previously used manycam even went as far as completely reinstalling a fresh version of the OS. The issue is that no matter what program I use for my manycam, manycam is not listed as a source. I can use any and all so far such as yahoo, live messenger, skype and others and the manycam will not show up as a video source. What can we do to resolve this or is there a fix on the way?

    I am able to use manycam 2.4.69 without any issues.

  10. Dude says:

    got the same Probkem like fishpoodle

    pls fix the video loop thing..

  11. Vicky Vette says:

    Will your software ever work with my sony handycam? It’s an amazing tool, but I don’t use a webcam because then I can’t record and edit my shows. So I broadcast all my webcams using my sony handycam. Sadly manycam does not work though… any plans to change this in the future?

  12. Aaron Prothero says:

    @Aussie

    In one of the previous posts, someone asked the samething. I believe the reply is that it’s a copyright issue at the moment, and they are working to fix it.

  13. Joe says:

    Great program… BUT, manycam has a BIG BIG prolem, if you use manycam (the new version) as a spiltter, and you broardcast your cam to a site, then, it zoom in VERY VERY much automatic, i have tryed with a lot of webcams, and all with same results. hope it will be fixed

  14. John Hobbs says:

    Bugs On Windows 7 64 bit:
    1. Crashes Yahoo Messenger anytime you start the YM cam…stop and restart on Windows 7 64 bit. Must shutdown and restart ManyCam after YM crashes.
    2. Zoom is activated when ManyCam feed is split into multifeeds.
    3. Latest version doesn’t work with YM Video Call feature.

    Annoyances:

    1. When STILL IMAGES is selected as the source there is no option to sort by date. Alphabetical sort is selected. Pictures play back in wrong order…1,10,100,1000, etc.
    2. If pictures are renamed in STILL IMAGES source folder a confirmation box pops up that says ”the file can’t be located and will be removed” for each pictures. OK or RETURN/ENTER must be pressed for each picture. WHY IS THIS NECESSARY??????

    That’s just off the top of my head. Please resolve these issues. Thanks for your hard work and Happy New Year.

  15. sky says:

    This latest version of manycam does not work with yahoo. Yahoo version 10.0.0.1270 (latest version for windows xp) does not show manycam as an available webcam option.

    The last version of manycam that i can get to work with yahoo is 2.4.69.

    Why won’t manycam show up as an option in yahoo?

  16. andy says:

    some software doesn’t show manycam in the camera list :
    1. ustream producer web version (flash based).. it detected on desktop version but i got problem with ustream producer desktop version, so i hope it works on web version
    2. yahoo messenger 10.0.0.1270
    3. flash based webcam application

    i’m using manycam 2.6.30

  17. andy says:

    okay it seems like my problem related to Flash webcam application is because of Flash version 10,1,103,22 that comes with latest Chrome browser : http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=64356

    Firefox and IE8 can detect manycam.

  18. Phil says:

    I am running manycam 2.6.30 and for some reason the my webcam camera in the preview is always zoomed in. When I say zoomed in, I’m not talking about the digital zoom that the software is capable of, but rather my cam looks like a box inside of the preview window. This box can move around just like the objects in the effects tab. Can i fix this to show my preview in its full window? Thx!

  19. Phil says:

    i left the last comment. another post about half way up solved the problem. uninstall and select the option to remove manycam files. reboot, and reinstall and voila! the problem is fixed. manycams is back to my fav softwares again!

  20. MaxGuncel says:

    It would be great if manycam can show “file names” automatically to viewers. For example, when I play my lecture video “Chemicals.avi”, viewer can see the subjects name as “Chemicals” as text. Can you make this?

  21. jim ray says:

    any gurus in here that can tell me how to make a restart script for manycam. our internet service ocassionally drops out,, then manycam looses the axis capture driver,,, its source. have to right click on tray icon,, exit, then start manycam,, then select source.. this is not really a manycam problem,,, but when i ran the webcam using windows media encoder someone wrote a restart script..

    thnx
    jim ray

  22. jim ray says:

    forgot to mention we have to use flash media encoder to stream to wildearth.tv and the axis 214 will not produce h264 stream,,, so i run manycam in between and send stream to wildearth via manycam source

  23. Melinda says:

    I had the same problem as mentioned above by Phil, where the view from the many cam screen was fine, but when broadcast it was zoomed in. I tried everything to rectify but nothing worked. Then I tried the tip above and worked great. Thanks so much for posting and sorting this out for me, you guys are the best!!! xxxx

  24. Robin says:

    Could you perhaps add a record function on the next update, and if there is already a record to save button, pleas may you make it easier to find? Thanks.

    Hello

    Manycam is working very fine with my webcam, photos and videos. The trouble is about my capture card (encore ENLTV-FM3 – Device: 713x BDA Analogue Capture). Do you know why doesn’t work (Error: Can’t connect to video source Please check another video capture)?

    Obs.: i’ve already installed the lastest driver and software for this device.

    Thanks
