I just installed YouCam9 (Essential) to see if the basic version works for me or if the paid version will give me additional useful features.

However, I've been unable to find the differences. Other posts where this question is asked invariably link to the main page that show ALL the features, but never identify which are in the basic version and which are in the paid version.

It makes no sense to say "pay for the better version" but never identify what you get.

My second question pertains to installs. I generally use two computers (each with two user accounts) and the software will be used primarily for business calls.

Would I need to purchase a license for each computer and user? How do I install the free version? I can clearly use two separate email accounts but it would seem to make sense if I could install the version on multiple computers without using multiple email accounts to install the software.

This reminds me of the original Cyberlink software of 20 years ago that made you jump through a zillion hoops to register software.

The Essential version lets you try the "premium" features for free for 30-days. After that, they won't be available in the app.

You can find the detailed list on the CL webpage. Here it is below:

Oh...and when you buy the software, it is a license to install on one computer only.

Thanks for the quick reply. Perhaps the question I should have asked is "What features are left after the 30 days are over?"

Also, since I have two accounts on the same computer - one personal, one for our non-profit, do I have to buy two licenses? Reinstalling the software on the second account does not allow me to log in using the same credentials, but allowed me to "transfer" the account. I guess I could do that forever but that seems a bit of a pain.

Thanks again - most helpful. The website is (intentionally?) quite cryptic about the "essential" features.

Ha...probably intentionally. To answer your question, there is no list of what is availablle, just what won't be available after 30 days. I see there is an FAQ about it as well: https://www.cyberlink.com/support/faq-content.do?id=25207

If you mean that you will install on a single Windows computer that you log into with two different accounts, that should be fine. If you have admin permissions, you can just choose to install for all users. It usually does this by default.

Exactly what I was looking for, Thanks!

Yes, one computer with two different accounts and I have admin rights. I guess I'll try to reinstall as admin. I don't know why I didn't think of that.



Most sites have a list of features that are available in the free and paid versions. I guess that would be too easy.

Thanks again
