I use a web cam on /dev/video0 and vloopback.ko module to pass videostream from /dev/video1 to /dev/video2.

When I run motion with video_pipe /dev/video1 option in its config file I can see the pipelined stream with xawtv -c /dev/video2 -geometry 640x480

But when I run linphonec, despite I set the device=V4L: /dev/video0 option in ~/.linphonerc, it cant find specified video device while shows in log:

ortp-message-Registering all webcam handlers
ortp-message-Webcam V4L2: /dev/video0 added
ortp-message-Webcam V4L: /dev/video0 added

How can I make linphonec using /dev/video2 device?
