    Change device /dev/video0 to /dev/video1

    Hi, I my system detects my TV tuner in /dev/video0 and the webcam in /dev/video1

    I need to put webcam in /dev/video0 because some programs, like google-talk takes the /dev/video0 device and don't let me change to another.

    How can I config that always webcam is configured into /dev/video0 and TV tuner in /dev/video1?

    Thanks.

    There has to be a way to specify which device google-talk should use...

    Probably won't help, but look up udev rules.
    It will let you create a softlink that always points to the same device, but I have not found a way to use it to make sure /dev/video0 points at the device I want it to, or even always point to the same device.
    Things not working for me in Ubuntu64:
    Horizontal scrolling on my mouse. USB to Parallel port adaptors, HP 8200 scanner driver, floppy disks, FAX through network attached multi-function printer.
