No register webcam show
fswebcam -d /dev/video0 Since my video order swaps around like yours I specify the actual device by it's id rather than /dev/video0 or /dev/video1 So to capture from my Logitech Pro 5000 I use: fswebcam -d /dev/v4l/by-id/usb-046d_08c5_0EE92593-video-index0 -q -S 12 -r 640x480 --jpeg 85 For your 2 webcam their device paths would be: /dev/v4l/by-id/usb-Vimicro_Corp._USB2.0_Web_Camera-video-index0 and /dev/v4l/by-id/usb-_Webcam_C170-video-index0 If your capture program can specify the video device then replace /dev/video0 and /dev/video1 with the above device paths, if that's not possible then the following bash script should help (it replaces the symbolic links): #!
/bin/bash cam_0="usb-_Webcam_C170-video-index0" cam_1="usb-Vimicro_Corp._USB2.0_Web_Camera-video-index0" sudo rm -f /dev/v4l/by-id/$cam_0 sudo rm -f /dev/v4l/by-id/$cam_1 sudo ln -s /dev/video0 /dev/v4l/by-id/$cam_0 sudo ln -s /dev/video1 /dev/v4l/by-id/$cam_1 , so I will try that.
but as I reboot rpi, cameras get assigned in /dev/video* randomly, which does not match my motion cameras configuration files /dev/video* assignment.
I have camera board and 2 usb webcam and I want to use motion, to watch my dogs when I am away.
Inputs does it show your webcam there or anything for the Device Properties or Format Settings?
Also are you using the latest version of Camtasia Studio?
If it is not showing anything you could try uninstalling the Integrated Webcam and then rebooting the Laptop and it should re-install the Integrated Webcam.
You would do this from your Device Manager as shown in your screenshot.
