The ticket http://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/3154 states that DirectShow
devices containing the # character cannot be used in VLM configs. When using
2 identical webcams, this is exactly what happens.
I think the problem is on line 137 of src/input/vlmshell.c (
134 // Don't escape the end of the string if we find a '#'
135 // that's the begining of a vlc command
136 // TODO: find a better solution
137 if( c == '#' || param )
139 param = true;
140 *out++ = c;
Finding charatcter # does not always mean a VLC command is following.
Replacing line 137 with
if( ( c == '#' && !quote ) || param )
should to the trick, it won't consider # inside quotes as the beginning of a
VLC command. However, I don't know if this could break other stuff, I'm too
unfamiiar with the code.
