"A practical utility to be able to use your webcam in various applications at the same time."
As you might be able to work out just from its name, SplitCam is an interesting tool, which works as a driver for virtual capture, and which clones your video source. This consists of the following: what you get with SplitCam is that your video entry (webcam, digital camera, video, TV ...) is multiplied and can be used in various programs at the same time.
This way, with SplitCam you can connect up to 64 client programs that use your webcam ... or for example view the video source from various programs, and even capture it from another application.
This way, SplitCam becomes a very interesting application if you want to establish conversations with the webcam with various contacts in your instant messaging program, for example. Also, if you want to give your SplitCam a different look, you can find different skins on the author's website.
