NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade manycam -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade manycam -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

Live Video Made Better

ManyCam is the go-to software to enhance your live video on streaming platform, video conferencing app and distant classes.

Add multiple cameras and video sources, such as mobile and PowerPoint, use virtual backgrounds, create layers and presets, screencast desktop, and more.
NOTE: This package installs a printer driver. If you have UAC prompts enabled, you will need to confirm the driver installation.

Virtual Backgrounds

Blur, remove or replace your background with images during web conferences, video chats, and virtual classrooms without a green screen. If you have a green screen, activate the Chroma Key for an even more professional virtual background.

Stream to Facebook and YouTube Live

Streaming has never been easier! Quickly set up your RTMP stream and broadcast to your chosen streaming service or go live on multiple platforms at once to increase your online reach.

NDI® Source

With NDI® Input, users can add NDI-compatible software and hardware as a video source within ManyCam. Skype and Microsoft Teams are two examples of potential NDI® sources. In other words, your meeting or one-on-one video call interview can be broadcasted live with ManyCam.

ManyCam also offers NDI® Output, which enables users to add ManyCam as an NDI® source on any compatible product with low-latency.

Network Device Interface (NDI®) is a free protocol for Video over IP developed by NewTek that allows video-compatible products to communicate, send, and receive high-quality videos with low-latency - ideal for live productions.

NOTE: The uninstall on some earlier operating systems is not silent as it requires answer to what data you wish to uninstall.

NOTE: Please note the system requirements particularly if you want to use virtual backgrounds.

NOTE: This is an automatically updated package. If you find it is out of date by more than a week, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
