Short info

Add effects to your web cam chats with the CyberLink YouCam.

Detailed information

Cyberlink's YouCam software gives you fun effects for your webcam video.  Load the software while the webcam is on, and just click a button on a panel to choose the special effect you want.  Many effects to choose from (and new ones can be downloaded from Cyberlink's website), including flying geese, flying balloons, smacking lips, knockout, happy birthday, confetti shower.

You can apply the effects while recording a video, or during a IM video chat (supporting Skype, Yahoo, Windows Live and AOL Instant Messenger).  You can also apply the effects to still photos taken with the webcam, Photo Booth style.

Dick has done a demo video of YouCam.  Watch it here.
