Hi! I try to make an script for some video recording using ffmpeg. I have an Microsoft webcam model LifeCam HD-3000. This camera is show in control panel like this: Microsoft® LifeCam HD-3000. When i list devices with ffmpeg a got some strange character because of registered trademark sign. I want to make an simple script to start capture but cannot specify camera because of this character. What solution can be done? It's possible to create an alias for this device, something with simple name? What i try'it until now: 1. make batch script encoded as UTF-8 but no success. I try'it different escape sequences like "\", "%", "^" but without result. 2. i change some windows registry where appear friendly name of this camera, but i found to many entries, so not practically. I have many computers where need to do that.
