[gst-devel] Can 2 directshow sources with the same name be used?

I have 2 directshow capture sources that have the same "Friendly Name", and
I want to be able to put both of these devices side-by-side in a videobox.
What I need to know is how to address the two devices to gstreamer, since I
cannot use the 'device-name' property, which seems to be the only thing that
probing is supported for. I tried using just the 'device' property by
passing it the DevicePath as seen by GraphEdit, but it doesn't seem to work.
I don't know if the dshowvideosrc element code is incomplete or I'm just
doing something wrong... could someone shed some light on this? Been
searching around the net for a while now and nobody seems to know much about
this element at all.
