Take photos, videos, and load up media onto MyCam quickly and easily. It’s a fun way to make videos and share them with friends and family.

A better cam for your desktop

This program is an alternative to Windows Cam that is a little easier to use. Make movies and take screenshots with minimal fuss.

Record videos and capture photos on your webcam using this handy software. It acts as a camera for your desktop and offers a range of tools to enhance your media.

Use the camera to take pictures in either JPG or PNG format. A timer option is available so you can take those cool, candid photos. You can also save your pictures to a dedicated folder, which MyCam lets you choose during the set-up process.

Create videos, and use some basic editing tools to improve them. Crop, split, and play around with the audio of your footage. Add some sound effects if you want to make your work more interesting. MyCam allows you to record MP4 and GIF video formats. GIFs are a popular animation that normal webcams don’t normally support, so this software is ideal if you want to play around with this feature.

Don’t just create new media. Check out the photos and videos that are stored on your desktop and open them with MyCam. The program offers different viewing options, such as slideshows and automatic view. It’s a great way to flick back through your digital album and even take screenshots of pictures.

MyCam is very lacking in some areas. The editing tools are limited and could do with some more features. There aren’t any special effects such as filters or text additions, which lets the software down. The setup is easy but is only available in Chinese. If you’re not tech-savvy, you might struggle to follow the instructions or install it correctly.

Where can you run this program?

This software is available on Windows 7, 8, and 10.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Cyberlink has a varied palette of tools and editing features included in its free version.

Our take

MyCam is a restricted program that doesn’t really offer much. It could be massively improved by offering more features.

Should you download it?

No. If you’re looking for something that avoids watermarks and has an affordable price tag, this option is far from optimal.
