Many streamers use a green screen to avoid obstructing too much of whatever they're streaming. If you don't have space for a green screen setup, XSplit VCam can help you achieve the same effect. The software is capable of separating a focused subject and the background without the need for a green screen. You simply turn on your webcam, run the application, after which you can blur, remove or replace everything that's visible behind you.
The software is free to try without any functionality limitations. It works on all modern Windows systems, and it can be installed in just a few seconds. You don't have to install any prerequisite tools or services, and you don't have to worry about the hardware requirements.
If you have a webcam connected and running, you only need to select it in a drop-down menu on the application's compact user interface. Additionally, you can pick between blurring the background, replacing it with something else or removing it completely. If you keep the original background or replace it with one of your pictures, you can also move a slider to blur it.
Removing the background is a good way to show yourself in a live stream without taking up too much of the footage you want to show your audience. It's also a good solution if you didn't clean up your room and you don't want everyone to see your mess. The program shows a preview of your live feed on the same interface, so you can always see how everything will look before you start streaming.
The program is optimized to work seamlessly with all popular chat and stream applications, including Skype, Discord and OBS. It picks up your webcam feed immediately, and it is capable of separating you from your background just as fast. When everything is in order, you can select XSplit VCam as the webcam input in the program you intend to use for your live stream.
Rather than going through all the tedium of setting up a green screen, XSplit VCam delivers the same effect with nothing more than one click.
You can remove or replace the background in your webcam feed without the need for a green screen. The software lets you pick between three options for dealing with the background. Its controls are well organized and easy to understand.
You will need to try the application with a good webcam before you buy it to make sure it works well for you.
