"Failed to open dshow:video=Microsoft? LifeCam HD-5000"


So I just downloaded this software and I am trying to record from my webcam, but it fails. Log only shows “Failed to open dshow:video=Microsoft? LifeCam HD-5000” I’m running Windows 10 64bit with the latest version of Shotcut 17.11.07. The camera works fine in other programs (VLC) as a directshow device.


It appears that the special character ® after Microsoft is causing a problem. My devices do not have this, and I do not have a LifeCam. It will be hard to fix without something to mimic it. Sorry, but this may take some time unless someone else can supply a fix via open source.
