Add iChat style special effects to your webcam

This program can no longer be downloaded. You can look for alternatives in Chat & Communication.

One way to spice-up web chats is to add special effects to your webcam chats. ManyCam does exactly that offering you a range of free iChat style special effects and backgrounds to make your video chats more fun.

Special effects are categorized such by type ranging from wigs, sunglasses, hats, distortions, animals etc. The effects are not always well placed or positioned however and a watermark saying "manycam.com" appears permanently at the bottom of the screen.

You can also add things such as flags (although not many), the time and date or a text of your choice. The most fun part is changing the backgrounds however which range from a beach, pool or mountain to classic black or white and sepia. The effects don't exactly look realistic, but it's fun all the same.

If you get bored with the default effects included in ManyCam, there are plenty of others available on the developer site for free.

If you're just looking for a good laugh or a bit of online video fun, ManyCam is simple and easy to use.

ManyCam now works with the Mac OS X Snow Leopard operating system.ManyCam has also had other miscellaneous bug fixes to benefit all Mac users.
