Making a video call via Whatsapp, Facebook, Snapchat, Google hangout, and all other apps that offer the features used to be fun and genuine, not until people start faking it. People are currently on the lookout for ways to make video calls impersonating other people, mostly celebrities. This article will teach you how to make a fake video call, so you can use this trick to prank your pals.
HOW TO MAKE FAKE VIDEO CALL
I will only explain this video call method for Google hangout, and the method is practically the same across all platforms, so let’s get down to the business of the day. To make this call, you will need a Google hangout account, and once you have a Google mail (Gmail) address, it’s always in this format firstname.lastname@example.org, you need software to help you with video call, I will recommend ManyCam because that is what am going to use for the sake of this write-up.
The first thing to do is launch your ManyCam software or app you should get the screenshot below.
Click on the + button circled below and select media files from the pop-up options.
Select the video file you will like to play via your video call, and it will be loaded to your ManyCam screen. For the sake of this tutorial, I will be using a model’s video. Her name is the Instagram handle is making up with fateema. Our video call is ready, so the next thing is to log on to your Google hangout account and do the following settings.
Click on the video call button on the hangout home page when you’re logged in; n: B this video call can only work on a laptop or desktop as I have not tried it on phablet or palmtop. I tried it on my android phone it didn’t work.
A new screen will pop up showing a box asking you to input an email address to invite someone to the video call. Close the small dialogue box and click on the settings icon.
A new dialogue box will appear on your screen, click on the video option and choose ManyCam virtual webcam. And close the tab.
Now that’s all, so anytime you want to make this call, load whichever video you want to use into ManyCam, open your hangout and dial anyone; once the person you are calling pick up the call, he or she will appear on your screen, but on the other side the video you uploaded in your ManyCam will appear on the screen, but it will remain static, all you have to do head on to your ManyCam app and click on play so the video can start playing and remember to stop the video at the appropriate time in case you have a lengthy video. You don’t intend to play its full length. Simple as that.
ManyCam has many features to play your way around its user interface (UI) to further enhance your video quality and rendering; you can also mute the video and can sure do a couple of other things and have fun.
Hey! There are many more webcam software out there, and you can use any one of your choices as you should get the same outcome, but I choose to ManyCam cause that’s the only one I have used, and it works well for me.
