How to stream a video clip from your desktop directly into a Google+ Hangout

Thanks to +Brandon Campeaux for the tip.

This how-to works for Chrome running on Windows 7

1. Download ManyCam from CNET

Please be advised that the installation also installs “Weather Bug” that you will have to get rid after you are done with the installation.

2. After ManyCam is installed open the application
3. Click on Sources
4. Click on Open New Files
5. Choose your movie file
6. Start an Hangout on Google+
7.*Go to Settings*
8.*On Camera choose “ManyCam Virtual Cam”*
9. On Audio choose “Stereo Mix”
10. Start playing the movie

** Do not close the Settings Window on G+. For some strange reason GTalk is not saving the settings*

Have fun!
