Webcam Jester 2.5

An application that adds funny distortions and effects to your webcam pictures or videos and also works when you are chatting on Skype with your friends
Webcam Jester can make your video calls much more entertaining by enabling you to apply various effects to your webcam video stream. It seamlessly integrates with applications and websites that support video conferencing and comes with recording and image capturing capabilities.

A rich set of effects

The application comes with a variety of effects that you can use to distort images, include the image inside a frame or place the stream within a scene. Moreover, it features face detection capabilities that enable it to accurately apply accessories such as hats or masks or even integrate faces of some of the most popular celebrities.

The diverse array of filters gives you the possibility to customize the image as you feel fit, while the available drawing tools help you apply stamps or text watermarks onto the image or use the brush to draw anything you want on top of the video frame.

Desktop recording and

webcam snapshots

Aside from capturing and customizing webcam streams, this application can also record the desktop or use a locally stored video file or an image (in JPEG, JPG, BMP, ICO, EMF or WMF format) as its source. However, the range of available filters is a bit more narrow in these cases.

Another feature worth mentioning is that Webcam Jester enables you to take frame snapshots from your webcam (or any other video source you might select) and save them to the hard disk. Alternatively, you can use it to create home videos with the help of its 'Record' function.

A cool application to use during video calls

With Webcam Jester, you can replace the default webcam stream with a video of the desktop activity or a locally stored video file. Additionally, the rich collection of effects it comes with can make your video conferencing sessions much more fun.
