Description Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2020-04-01 19:00:30 UTC
One webcam is shown twice in the device list because it creates two /dev/videoN devices, one of which is V4L metadata only.

See bug#245245 for details.

Report upstream. There're no downstream patches affecting WebRTC, and I don't have a webcam to play with the code.
