Webcam Freezes after about 30 minutes

Hi, I have been using a Microsoft Lifecam HD-3000 webcam and while live streaming to Facebook and Youtube it freezes about 30 minutes in. The mic still works, just the video freezes. I am using it as a picture in picture layer on top of my powerpoint presentation. Any tips as to how I might fix this? The resolution is set to 720p at 30FPS. ~Thank you

Hi @bitterroot98,

At first, please make sure you use the latest version:

When/if it freezes next time please open Task Manager, right-click on ManyCam and select “Create dump file”. It will create a (big) file and show you its name. Please upload the file somewhere and send the link using our contact form


I am having a similar problem on MacOS X Catalina. I am unsure how long, but ManyCam just freezes the camera input. HELP!
