Can someone running FreeBSD 8.2-RC1 with more than one or external USB webcam
or DVB-XXX devices verify the following:
1) Install /usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd
3) Check that character devices are created for your device(s) under /dev
/dev/videoX for webcams
/dev/dvb/adapterX for DVB devices
3) HAL should show your device.
lshal | grep -i video
lshal | grep -i dvb
4) Hot replug the USB plug of your USB webcam/DVB device, perform checks 1,2
and 3. If same result everything is OK.
