Fake Webcam works as a virtual camera that lets you add effects and overlays to the output image. The application supports connecting to a real webcam, playing videos as well as displaying static pictures. Fortunately, it supports various video and image formats. In addition, it also lets select a specific area on your desktop.

The application has a nice and intuitive interface, which will allow you to use it from the start without much difficulty. After selecting any of the types of input mentioned above, you can pick the effects that you wish to apply. Various effects are available, including blur, brightness, colorize, and emboss. Likewise, you can add overlays, such as frames, funny faces, images, animated GIFs, and flags. Unfortunately, they are not very nice and you cannot customize them.

Fake Webcam can add fun to your video chatting experience by using pre-recorded videos. It is compatible with applications like Skype, Gtalk, and Yahoo Instant Messenger. The program is relatively light and easy to install. However, it does not work very fast and the changes you make will probably take a while to preview.
