    Default Using two webcams at once

    Hi all,

    So I have two separate Logitech C920s that I want to use for two different purposes simultaneously.

    I can have both of them plugged in and running at the same time without problem, but the problem IS that I can't change the settings for both of them. I can select either webcam in the Logitech Webcam Software but moving the sliders only applies to one webcam and not the other. And of course if I plug one webcam out the white balance settings for that webcam resets.

    Has anybody found a workaround to this?

    Yeah it's the shitty Logitech software that's the problem really, maybe there's some other software that could be used?

    Its a problem with microsoft windows where in most cases it won't assign a different name for each webcam. Like c920-1 and c920-2. For me 2 c920's are interchangeable in windows 7 but not in recent editions of 10, until I went into the registry and changed the "friendly name" for each device. And even then it doesn't always work in windows 10 because it reverts back after the next update. In cases where I needed to do this I just use a c920 and a c922 and call it a day.

    Go very very carefully if you attempt this https://www.eightforums.com/threads/...manager.15321/ When I get home later I will look on my computer for the more recent bookmark.

    when they are plugged into one machine. they don't response well to many setting changes.

    only way to control their settings is with a remote control or them being on two separate computers.

    I broadcasted with 2cams because of a site who requires exclusivity. The trick for me was using a c920 and a BCC on the same pc. The c920 would work by changing up down zoom in zoom out and settings in the Logitech software and for the BCC I used the remote control and changed the settings into my splitter-Verysoft Webcam Splitter.
