This version of ManyCam downgrades the free version.

What the changelog doesn’t tell you is that in order to remove the ManyCam logo, you need to upgrade to PRO now.

I’m sorry, but I already have tons of unresolved issues on why I don’t feel like upgrading to Pro is worth it, but I have plenty of reasons to tell others to download ManyCam as a free webcam program. One of the reasons was the watermark.

This type of behavior doesn’t convince me to upgrade. It just convinces me to not use ManyCam anymore, pro or free.

I’d appreciate if you didn’t pull this sneaky behavior and change this back when possible.

People who can’t pay for a product don’t pay for it for a reason, making their free experience more painful when you upgrade does not entice someone to pay for it or shift their funds towards such a program.

tl;dr: They won’t let you remove the watermark now until you pay.

Completely agree with IceSage. A really bad move to make that change, forcing users to pay an absurd amount of money for a mediocre application. I won’t be using ManyCam anymore unless this is reversed or I’ll just downgrade to the previous version.

I’m agreeing with IceSage on this one

I love the newest version and yeah its annoying that free users cant remove manycam logo anymore. Plus we cannot download an offline installer from website so we can store the setup etc.

Thirdly, i would like to suggest an option for stream directly to ManyCam using your phone. In that we have to hold the phone in a certain way for the images to appear In right way on cam. So i think there should be some upgrade to this so that however any person hold his/her phone camera whether holding it horizontally or vertically. Images should appear correctly on webcam and not upside down. i hope u understand what im trying to tell u. Maybe for this u can add a checkbox under setting saying Auto Correct the Upside Down Images from mobile. So that when its checked it will automatically show the images on cam in right manner even when we hold the phone in any way

Agree with other commenters. why can we not remove the logo in this version?

The webinstaller does not work. After a successfull download, start the webinstaller. It start the program and you click accept.. Boom… Nothing happens after clicking the Accept button. Just vanishes.

I like the version 4.0.97 feature of using smartphone cam but the quality gets lower when u are using it. Also i observed we cannot use our front cam which is sad. So please update it and fix the VIDEO QUALITY from Smartphone and also option to use the Front cam of smartphone.

So, there’s no way to get rid of this watermark anymore???

Can anyone give me advice please! Is there really no way back to an earlier version???

I’m in shock! I don’t want this really…

Hi Karl, the mobile source is a new feature for us and we are working to update it to make it better. Thanks for your suggestions!

manycamuser, we’ve updated the file, can you try again and see if it works?

ilovemanycam 2 years ago

it works good and yeah we need those options what other commenters have mentioned here.

Please fix the upside down images for mobile source or add some auto rotate option. u can take reference from evaer Skype recorder if u want for those options.

Excited for another update, maybe some upgrade option would be added to desktop n some to smartphone app

I love that you can stream youtube I just wish you could stream live events on youtube! That would be so cool if you could.

Brian Hillard 2 years ago

Bring back the option to hide the ManyCam logo.
Otherwise you can forget it, sorry.

I upgraded to the latest free version from the earlier one. Yeah – i also don’t like the fact that I cant get rid of the logo. More importantly, all of my videos now play back in a herky jerky fashion and not at the correct, smooth video speed.

Additionally, if i try to record an mp4 formatted video, all manycam does is save saves a still photograph – no video at all, even though it looks like it is recording a video when I try to record one.

What is up with this? Are you trying to drive users to other brands? This doesn’t make me want to upgrade to pro. It makes me fear that by upgrading to pro, I’m going to spend money on something that doesn’t work right.

Taking away the ability to remove the watermark and hiding that information was a pretty unethical thing to do. I’ll be uninstalling ManyCam because I can’t trust the developers not to engage in other bad behavior.

I seem to be echoing what has already been said. I’m very disappointed to learn now that you cannot remove the logo. Was seriously considering an upgrade pretty soon but, this type of sneaky marketing makes me super suspicious. Very disappointed…

The audio playback is choppy when playing mp3 files.

Just popping in to let you know I uninstalled ManyCam. $50 to remove a watermark? I don’t think so, not when I can do everything I use manycam for in OBS (a free program) itself.

Tester 2 years ago

video files doesn’t work in loop mode. The video always stops at its end.

Bob Marley 2 years ago

Definitely uninstalling manycam until the hid watermark is reimplemented for free users. I will pass this onto my friends who use manycam as well.

Tester – we are working on a fix for the loop mode.

Ace – If you are having problems with video recording, I would suggest contacting our support team at helpdesk@manycam.com so they can investigate the issue with you and find a solution.

Ignored all comments about logo, much like most previous bugs and issues that were not forced to become personal issues. This is a paid program, please stop treating it as a side job. If you have issues with it being a sidejob, develop the marketing more to make it more professional and easier to market.

Some YouTube videos are not displaying correctly on ManyCam. The video gets distorted and appears as diagnal lines.

Also, some YouTube video won’t play and shows “Invalid Source”. Not sure what is causing this. I’m guessing maybe they are copyrighted videos or videos with ads.

Loop mode is a major defect for broadcasters. Hoping that gets fixed very soon.

Logo on free version means I will no longer be upgrading manycam releases.

As this is used just for fun paying for it is out of the question just to get rid of a logo!

Yes, I also agree with IceAge, the watermark makes this app totally unusable for me.

REALLY disappointed with this update (its a downgrade!!!) you should be trying to make your product BETTER to improve sales by providing VALUE to the customer, but you went in the opposite direction.

Forcing us to have the ManyCam logo is a dick move. If there was ever any chance that I was going to upgrade to Pro at some point, you’ve completely killed that.

So long, ManyCam.

This is great and all, but I have one complaint

Why should we be FORCED to pay to remove the watermark
It’s really annoying when stuff does that, I used ManyCam because it was more free, now, i just uninstalled it seconds ago due to this ridiculous thing

Please make it so we don’t have to pay to remove the watermark, your losing allot of users because of this

Sean – please refer to our FAQ on how to get mp4 and other format videos to play in ManyCam 4: http://manycam.com/faq#How to get MP4 (and other formats) videos to play in version 4?

and why now as of today my antivirus blocking manycam from working? says threat found and infected files malsign.vivicom.891 does someone else have that problem?

Luc – we are aware of the issue with AVG, and were working with them to fix the issue. Try completely uninstalling and reinstalling, it should work.

Brian Hillard 2 years ago

You still have not addressed the issues with Windows 8.1 either?

Bring back the FREE option to hide Webcam Logo, removing it was the worst thing you could ever do.

Longtime Manycam User 2 years ago

I simply won’t use ManyCam anymore now that you have to pay to remove the watermark. ManyCam has gotten better with each release, and I’ve been tempted to buy Pro, but I was always afraid this would happen.

At least, *please* make the logo smaller, or more transparent, or perhaps appear every 5 minutes for a 30 seconds to a minute, then disappear (sort of like real life TV channel logos do during shows).

To everyone else, just google “old versions of manycam” if you want to downgrade.

Hey! I have a little issue with my manycam pro software. I recently updated to version 4.0.97, when I add the microphone to the broadcast image when I record I can hear a bit of static. I have tried uninstall and reinstall but nothing seems to work. I run a radio station with professional equipment and need a solution for my issue.

I am pasting a link for you to hear the noise.

Brian – Can you clarify what issue you are referring to for 8.1? Our latest version is now working with Metro apps if that is what you mean. But if you are having other problems please let us know or contact our support.

Jorge – We will have the static issue fixed in our next update.

I had same problem with watermark, do what I did if you have old file re download it and watermark solved

Too much money for this – lets be reasonable ! I would have bought PRO if when clicking the the “BUY” page, I saw some reasonable amount, not 54 or whatever it was – big turn off. Even promo codes to make it reasonable amount would be better even if you could not “reduce price:” !!

Well i just purchased manycam pro ..but whenever i try and play a youtube video its telling me invalid url ….not happy ….

I see MULTIPLE people have commented about the inability to remove the ManyCam logo. All of us will cease using ManyCam if this functionality is not returned to the next update.

Admin, will you address this issue? Nobody has said anything about it since you sneakily added this to a previous update. I know, I personally, will not use any future version of ManyCam unless you can remove the logo. This is why I’m not updating and why most of the time, I don’t even utilize ManyCam.

I love Manycam so much, been using it for ages and was always able to remove that watermark logo. 4.0 comes out and now I have to pay for pro….. I’m sorry but no, I have other things more important to pay for. I don’t want the pro features, I just want the logo gone! Help please?
