Hi everybody,

Giving a hand to our collegues at the University of Extremadura, we 
found a problem. Maybe someone knows the solution. The problem arises 
with a one machine node with two capture cards:

They have 2 videoproducer services + 1 videoconsumer. The problem is 
that the videofeeds go to any of the vics (video producer of 
videoconsumer) randomly... so.. sometimes the videoconsumer vic receives 
nothing (but the videoproducer vic does), and it starts receiving the 
feeds only when i close one of the video producer vics.

The only workaround i've found is to add 2 video services (so any of 
them receive the feeds and are unmuted). Both receive all the feeds, but 
i dont like that solution very much. I am afraid it might have some 
impact on performance (the videostreams are delivered to two different 

Thanx a lot in advance,
Kind regards.
