ManyCam is a freeware program which lets you play around with your webcam for fun and giggles. You can add effects, different cool backgrounds, tweak the image in real time and generally spice up your boring webcam life.
The other cool trick is the ability to make your webcam useable with more than one application simultaneously (for instance different video chat programs), which is something you generally cannot do with Windows. You can also add your own home grown effects (such as an exotic dynamic background video) to your webcam chat. Nothing serious here, just a bit of fun, think IncrediMail for webcam video.
What is ManyCam? – Use your webcam with multiple programs simultaneously. – Add text to your webcam video window with any application. – Add cool animations to your video window. – Show your local day and date in your video window. – Add live CGI graphics like fire and water effects. You can even make it appear as if it is snowing inside your house!
