Ease CPU strain by making presets “idle”

ManyCam is CPU hot especially for screen sharing. It would be so much easier on the CPU to have only the current preset working and taking resources. If I have a desktop screen capture it might boost the CPU usage by 20%. Even if I’m using another preset that uses a single webcam, the CPU load is still so high because of another preset. Would it be that much to only “activate” the preset and it’s items when in use?


Hey @Robert

Thanks for putting this forward. We’ve been considering different ways to lower the CPU usage. The one you described is one of them.

Considering this has been a long time I think. What year will we see improvements on high CPU usage? This is the only thing I hate about ManyCam. Can the improvement move along please.


This seems like a great idea, so when?
