The point is that for the dshow we don't need quotes.
Do we need them elsewhere ?
I think quotes mean: take the hole following string including spaces.
As long as the delimiting is done correctly i am not sure that we
actualy need the quotes inside psz_data.


:adev="Create sound blaster" :vdev="vid1" :type=pal etc

here psz_value for adev should be
Creative sound blaster
and not
"Creative sound blaster"
