Hi Alexander,
The windows port lack any plugins for hardware interaction currently.
Which means it can do transcoding etc., but not grab webcam or soundcard
input (or output to soundcard etc.). Such plugins are planed, but the
main developer of the Windows port Steve Lhomme has been busy with other
stuff lately. If you would be interesting in writing such plugins both
we and Steve would be very happy of course.
