ManyCam for Mac issues on Flash websites

01

We’ve recently received a few emails and comments from users about our ManyCam for Mac software not working on some Flash based websites such as Omegle. We are still working on an update for our Mac software, however in the meanwhile if you are having trouble viewing ManyCam as a video source, or if it shows up as a black screen on some websites, you can  try using different browsers like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Sometimes using a browser other than Safari will temporarily solve the problem. Thanks for your patience!

    it works perfectly on a mac under mountain lion and with the latest version. Not working with Mavericks and the latest version of Manycam.

  2. gour says:

    No, it doesn’t work. Tried chrome and firefox and still doesnt work. Too bad cause I was ready to buy the pro version. now I’m not!

  3. Jarrett says:

    Actually own 2 licenses and can’t use it because I’m on mavericks. Tried all Safari, Chrome, Firefox.

  4. robot13 says:

    i mean, with the previous version (not the latest) sorry…

  5. JonSnow says:

    Any word on when this will be solved?

  6. admin says:

    We are still working on this, and will hopefully have an updated version soon!

  7. jorge says:

    Hi, I have the Pro version in few pc I can use?

  8. Jarrett says:

    Any estimate on mavericks issue being solved?

  9. GuTu says:

    Hello, when can we expect to have an update solving this issue ? Actually, ManyCam is useless on a Mac, this is not acceptable on a 50$ software.

    Best Regards.

    Getting restless waiting for a mac update…

  11. John says:

    Its been 6 months, I think the hopes of this program being fixed are slim to none, anyone know of another program I can use?

  12. Max says:

    any update or any suggestions on an alternate software to use?

  13. Adam says:

    It’s taking so long for that update. We need it working on mac and the “custom source name” too. I paid for pro and until now it feels like i throw my money on trash. Please release a new version!

  14. JonSnow says:

    Can ADMIN at least just tell us whether we should keep our hopes up or not? Everyone has a Mac this is getting ridiculous!

  15. admin says:

    Hello, when I updated my Skype and Manycam to its most current versions, Manycam causes Skype to crash 2 minutes into the video chat. Any reason why?

  17. Klock says:

    I just got manycam for mac yesterday and was puzzling over why it wouldn’t work. Kind of a bummer to finally find out it just doesn’t work. Keep at it Manycam, I’d really like to use your product. Think of all the ‘Pros you will sell when you fix it :)

  18. Echo Z says:

    I purchased ManyCam Pro before I discovered it will not work on any of the sites I planned to use it on. In theory, I liked this product….but Months later it still sits on my computer unused, day after day. Kind of a bummer.

  19. Jarrett says:

    Still no response from your company!

  20. Amber says:

    I am also having issues with Skype calls – it crashes a few minutes in. Please provide a fix for this.

  21. craig says:

    I bought the Pro version not realizing how far behind the PC version it was. I needed to PIP and other features, but feel like the Mac version is given ‘when we get to it’ status. I wouldn’t complain publicly about free or inexpensive software, but for $50 software, it is ridiculous. :-(

    I’d prefer smaller releases more often rather than once a year. Please update on the latest status of the Mac release or should I ask for a refund?

  22. Jarrett says:

    Still no response to my email from your company. Amazing customer service!

    The problem came from the last version of adobe flash player.
    1) Go here to unistall your version of flash http://helpx.adobe.com/fr/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-mac-os.html
    2) Install a old version and it work http://helpx.adobe.com/fr/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html#Flash%20Player%20archives

    In my mind, i used the version 11.9.900.117 appeared the 08/10/2013

    Jarrett – we don’t provide customer service on this blog, you would need to contact helpdesk@manycam.com as listed on our contact page on our website.

    It does not work for streaming websites using flash.
    I would like th option to change the source video name and do not know how to do so, I looked everywhere.
    Please help.

    Was going to buy Pro. Does many cam work with OS X Yosemite Version 10.10?

    Let me know, I’m waiting.

  27. Liam says:

    Awaiting for a fix for Yosemite 10.10

  28. Tony says:

    We have one more month until comments are closed, can we get an update soon? Was going to buy Pro but perhaps not anytime soon.

  29. mwelch says:

    I have my mac and it doesn’t list the manycams as a program to use. Is this a common error cause I bought the pro thinking it would work. If I cant get it to work can I get a refund.

  30. JK says:

    Very disappointed. Just bought the PRO now and discovered it’s not working with Flash camera settings in Yosemite 10.10

  31. Echo Z says:

    I was hoping when I upgraded to Yosemite that ManyCam would finally work on flash sites. The answer was a big letdown. Manycam is still not working. Why is this so hard to fix? Why release a new Mac version of your software and have it still be broken?? I am so frustrated with this situation & software.

    PLEASE fix this!

  32. mwelch says:

    still waiting for a answer. I posted this on Nov 15th and the admin still wont answer.

  36. admin says:

    Hi Don – this might be due to the problems we are having with Yosemite, our team is working on a fix for this. We hope to have a new version ready soon. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you have any other inquiries or need further assistance, please contact us at helpdesk@manycam.com. Thanks.

    Does downloading Manycam 4.0.97 fix this problem? I’m having the same issue of Flash Player not recognizing Manycam as a video source. I’m using my mac (Yosemite 10.10). I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling a few different Flash Player versions, installing and reinstalling Manycam, using Firefox, Safari, and Chrome, I’ve tried starting Firefox in 32-bit mode. Nothing has worked :(
    Someone please heeeelp.

  38. Dave says:

    Hello,

    Same here manycam is not working anymore with yosemite. When will there be a fix ready?
