BTW the probe interface is deprecated; in 1.0 you’ll have to use the device provider interface (not implemented yet for dshowsrcwrapper). To differentiate between devices having the same name, you should use the « device » property instead of « device-name »; it’s the DirectShow device path. Take a look at gstdshow.cpp in the plugin’s sources (for instance the gst_dshow_getdevice_from_devicename) for a sample of how to enumerate those.
