it still will crash at boot up it never really completely boots up it will show just the frame and out line of all the boxes in the window and thats it no buttons no way to use it for your video camera

why cant we loop a single video in the movie section like the older version?


Can you email our helpdesk with some screenshots? They’ll then ask if you’ll email us some logs to help us solve your problem. We’d really appreciate it.


You should still be able to loop single movies as usual. Thanks.

I have not gotten my reply yet…. i had a problem in ManyCam installation… i cannot run it because there is an error message ” Initialization Error”… what can i do?

it doesnt loop the same video over and over when you have more than one video in the movie section. it just goes back to the bargaining to the first video.

I already asked this once. I’m having the same problem as why, videos are not looping.

We plan to change how looping works in the next release.

hey there always were somebody who wanted to loop all movies in a playlist and others wanted to loop single video so dont complain about this issue

just hoping the next release will suggest more convienent loop as admin told us

Why doesn’t the new version of manycam support MP4 files anymore? Past versions have been able to play many different video formats. Now I have to re-encode all my video files just to use them for manycam.

SYN u can play mp4 maybe u need to install the right codecs. trye out the k-lite mega codec pack and play with decoding mp4 in “ffdshow video decoder configuration”.

And developers please fix that that loop problem im so tired of using the old 2.4 version that craches all the time. Cant u just make a quick fixes this problem. You had it working before so how hard can it be to fix it….
The “resent played” is not a playlist thats what the playlist tab is for why else have??

Hey I use this for mac, The program its self works fine.. I use it on omegle, It’s recently stopped working.. it doesn’t come up on the list of cams to choose, on omegle or any website.. it works with photobooth though.. can you help out?

Due to changes on loop working, i need to reinstall older version (2.4.69). Where can i get it? Thx

Getting the “Initialization error” crash whenever I launch ManyCam.

Have submitted the bug report using the form generated by the prog at the time of the crash but have heard nothing and have been unable to use cam since before the holidays.

Will I have to go back and find an only 2.4 version is is there a fix for whatever is going wrong?

cool software, thanks. Amuses my 9 year old.

Non technical question. When I am using background effect, I frequently get a request for a new snapshot. I’m green-screening out the usual clutter you’d associate with an office or basement. Is there a place where people share tips on keeping the effects stable? I was wondering if I put up a screen or changed the lighting some-way if I could get a better experience.

I am also curious as to if this is a hobby/company/blend of the two. Feel free to email me if you want to answer.

Again, thanks for the tool.

I’m very aggravated with manycam, I love the software and I use it everytime when I’m on webcam.. but WHY DOES MY SNAPSHOTS ALWAYS GETS ERASED? Seriously.. I take snapshots quite alot, and for them to get erased on every shutdown I do on my comp, urks me.

Can’t really use manycam for everything, and ofcourse I save some snapshots, but not all of them. I had like 3 week old snapshots, with important events.. now its all gone.

and I can’t find any folder, that programs should have with data/cache of your snapshots.

I have installed the latest version on a windows 7 machine. when I go to select sources and movies and select a movie file…manycam just crashes.

would it be possible for manycam to stream videos in at least 360p? i streamed a 720p movie and a anime on tinychat and the quality is crap. the subtitles are unreadable.

I have latest version installed on windows 7 machine. everything else seems to work but when I go and select sources and movies and select a movie file…manycam just freezes up.

Is there a way to get your video feed to be a picture-in-picture function? Like you’re chatting on google hangouts and have your video within a picture? If not, can we expect this update or at least this feature for Mac OSX soon?

Love ManyCam !!!!
Can you add custom resolution in the future ? I mean custom forced size where we can choose the resolution we want.
Or at least more resolutions that stretch the image vertically a bit, to make the image look thinner/slimmer/longer ?
Thank you !

I have downloaded, installed, rebooted, and ran ManyCam on my computer for the first time and I get an “Initialization Error”. I have opened up ManyCam in a debugger to step through the code and track down the bug. The error happens when ManyCam attempts to Load the ManyCam Logo using the CxImage library (ManyCam\Data\effect_data\logo\logo.png). In short, I think the CxImage library thinks that the image is a BMP instead of PNG and tries to read it as that. I am not sure why this happens, but I will try to briefly break it down.

First, this is called from ximaenc.cpp:
CxImage::CxImage(const TCHAR * filename, DWORD imagetype)

Example of its usage in ManyCam code: CxImage LogoImage(L”…\\ManyCam\\Data\\effect_data\\logo\\logo.png”, CXIMAGE_FORMAT_UNKNOWN);

Following where the error occurs, we enter the Load function in ximaenc.cpp:
bool CxImage::Load(const TCHAR * filename, DWORD imagetype);

Then we follow the code in the Decode function (inside Load):

There are several Decode functions, but this is the one that gets called:
bool CxImage::Decode(FILE *hFile, DWORD imagetype)
CxIOFile file(hFile);
return Decode(&file,imagetype);

Inside that next Decode function call is where the exception occurs. I have sent the detailed bug report via helpdesk email and also through the crash report dialog in ManyCam.

I’m having problems with outgoing sound on movies. No idea where to start. Any suggestions?

Great product.

Only one issue.
How set up to use 16:9.
I have two cams (MSFT Life Cam Studio) connected and can view them in Lync, Movie Maker and other software.
But no 16:9 resolution. It’s allways cropped to 4:3 and in smaller resolution than the source. Force resolution don’t work either.

when will there another update for both windows and mac ?

anyone else having an issue with video smearing when rezing pic in pic? the new version lets you rezise but then has video arifacts in the space that the video once was in the frame….

next version, please let us have up to 4 different feeds, and the abilty to switch or create a working video studio type enviro….

I cannot play .mov files: windows player(W7 ultimate) does play them

I downloaded the latest version of ManyCam on my new Macbook Pro. When I go to load a video into ManyCam the area is greyed out. I can’t load any video. I’m not sure why. I don’t know how to fix this. What can I do?

ManyCam is causing Internet Explorer to crash when I go to a site that uses the webcam while in InPrivate mode. Regular mode seems to work fine. Any idea how I can fix/workaround this? Uninstall/reinstall did not help.

I ve installed manycam 3. Now i can´t open it, only worked the first time, nice upgrade by the way.

I have this error using it in windows 7 64 bits

“Error initializing localized strings.”

Danhere 4 years ago

I have tried 3.0 it was good but I think since my machine at the time is running at 1.92ghz don’t think it can handle 3.0 2,665 works fine though
how about just giving us a new free version with out the extras the 3.0
the muti-pip was great in 3.0 I think if you do a bare born feature like 2.665
and add the muti-pip feature that would be great

ok i downloaded manycam to get a banner to another website i webcam on how do i transfer the scrolling text over to the other website i cant get it i see other people using it but idk how too help out pleaseeeee ive been tryin for hours

Guardiola 4 years ago

I´ve downloaded 3.0.53 version. Still have the “Error initializing localized strings.”

Come on guys is this a joke? You pretend sell your crappy software to anyone?

Guardiola 4 years ago

Finally, 3.0.62 version fixed my problem

The new version of ManyCam doesn’t working with ¨PSEye whereas the old it works. Why ?

Why cant i move the PIP screen outside the screen? So i can make it full screen and move it to the right? (so a part is not visibale, cause its outside the screen)

I need it to make manycam any usefull to me.

Hope you can add it, it should be easy and asked about it more then a year ago.
