As far as I remember the Windows-thingy there is a possibility to get all
devices listed - afterwards the user can choose one. I think there is no big
difference between setting /dev/video1 or WinDeviceXY explicitely using
command line parameters. Beside of that at least for audio Windows offers
the possibility to select the best device automatically using the option
WAVE_MAPPER during opening the device.

Btw: are there any Solaris ports offering capturing support out there?
