Generally speaking, you won't be able to use your web camera in more than one application at the same time if you connect the applications directly to the camera. Something must be placed between the camera and the communication software. That "something" should split the video signal and send it independently to each video consuming application. SplitCam does exactly this. Plus it adds some video processing: contrast, brightness and color adjusting to enhance your video. With SplitCam you are not limited to taking video from web camera only - you can as well use your existing video files as the video source.
