Video2Webcam is an app that creates a virtual webcam on a Windows computer, allowing users to show videos during any video chat.
Especially designed to work with the most popular instant messengers on the market, Video2Webcam is more like a fake webcam application, providing just a few tools for a user-friendly approach.
Once installed, the application allows you to pick the instant messaging programs you plan to use from the get-go, with supported names including Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Skype, Paltalk, ICQ, AIM, Camfrog and many others.
The interface is the one that makes everything easy as pie because it only asks you to pick the video to be shown on webcam and start broadcast. Video2Webcam supports all multimedia files, regardless if we’re thinking about videos or photos, including AVI, MP4, FLV, MPG, WMV, RM, RMVB, JPG, GIF, BMP and PNG.
The video can be played in a loop, while Video2Webcam lets you adjust the volume straight from the main window.
There are a few settings to play with in a dedicated options screen, allowing you to configure the webcam source rate, webcam source size and apply the settings either to all users or just to a specific account.
As you can see, it is not at all difficult to use and the lack of a help manual shouldn’t bother you too much.
All in all, it is one of the best tools of its kind that provides support not only for an impressive list of instant messengers, but also for most video and image formats out there.
