Use files, images and videos from a personal computer as substitutes for a webcam feed during calls in Skype, ICQ, AIM, Camfrog or in other video chats. All webcam programs are supported, most common media formats are accessible including AVI, MP4, FLV, MPG, WMV, RM, RMVB, JPG, GIF, BMP and PNG.

Video2Webcam lets you create a virtual webcam and show videos while you are chatting. The program works even if you do not have a webcam installed. It has a very straightforward interface but, unluckily, there is no help documentation whatsoever.

When you run the program for the first time, you can set it to work with specific instant messengers. Good news is that it supports multiple services of this type, including Skype, Yahoo Messenger, Paltalk, AIM, Camfrog, Windows Live and some others. The next step is to select the video you want to play. Again, various sources are allowed. In this respect, you can play not only standard files but also DVD videos and even online clips. Likewise, various picture formats are supported. From then on, you can simply choose its fake webcam as a source in any video chatting tool. It is also possible to switch between the real and virtual cam.

There are various adjustments you can make. For instance, you can have the program play video in a loop. Likewise, you can set your preferred webcam source rate and size. Finally, you are allowed to adjust sound volume as well.

All in all, Video2Webcam comes in quite handy when you need to share a video with the people you are chatting with. Likewise, the program can help you pretend it is someone else calling. It works stably and without using too many resources. Fortunately, the product is shareware and can be tried at no cost. However, a watermark is shown in the video.
