macOS ManyCam Virtual Webcam not detected

On MacOS (Mojave) I have installed ManyCam.
I have Skype, Camfrog, Facetime, Photo booth etc.
I can select ManyCam in Skype, but it is NOT available in Camfrog, Facetime, Photo booth - they only display the Default FaceTime camera in the dropdown.

I have installed the ManyCam app on my mobile, it connects and displays in the ManyCam desktop app fine. (although my face is blue - wierd)
All I am trying to do is use my Mobile as a second webcam for my Macbook. (later maybe even an ip camera)

Anyone know why this does not work? Driving me crazy!

Hi @camwood,

The reason of problem with camera visibility is the sandboxing, that Apple intentionally use in their software. There is no workaround for this problem. You may try to submit a feedback to Apple and ask to fix the issue with FaceTime, Photo booth and Safari: https://www.apple.com/feedback/macos.html The same is true for Camfrog and any other software where manycam doesn’t work.

As for the blue face problem, try to logout/login on both your devices.

for me, as of Beta 3.0 it doesn’t work in Skype anymore either

update: it doesn’t work anymore period. Not after uninstalling and re-installing either, not any version. I spend too much time on the forums these days.

It doesn’t work yet - that really sucks!
I don’t blame the ManyCam-Guys. Its the Apple Policy, that sucks. Hopefully there are enough complaints, so they see the crap and handle it right

Hello everyone,

Here’s a quick update with known workarounds:

  1. Skype. Try using the web version (best use it in Chrome): http://web.skype.com/
  2. Webex join from browser: https://help.webex.com/en-us/nrbgeodb/Join-a-Webex-Meeting#id_135013
  3. Zoom: virtual webcams now supported in the latest Zoom update.
