sorry, but this is simply not possible, you can only address webcams using a numerical id (-1,0,1,2,3,...)

If I having two same cameras, How to identify the camera? If open Cam1 using id 0, open Cam2 using id 1. When the PC reboot & restart program, Does id 0 still indicates Cam1? and id 1 still indicates Cam2?
