Save capture device shortcut to file (VLC)

Any way to save a shortcut to my webcam in VLC to the desktop? I just want a 1 click open. 

Thanks! 

 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really. 

I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast. I don't know everything.

 

My systems:

Main: 

Spoiler

Xeon e5-2690 v1, HP z620 workstation board/case/800w PSU. EVGA GTX 980 SC, 8x4gb ECC DDR3-1333, 128gb NVME, 240gb SSD, 1tb SSD, 2x2tb HDD, 2x1tb HDD (too many)

Added Sound Blaster Z (2020), PCIe NVME card, USB 3.1 card, and front bay HDD dock

Retro:

Spoiler

Pentium 4 HT 661, GT 730 1gb, 4x1gb DDR2-667, 80gb Spinpoint HDD in a DC7600 SFF board/case. Sound Blaster Audigy SE sound, Trinitron Ultrascan 15 monitor, Altec Lansing PC speakers.

Render farm:

Spoiler

Optiplex 760, Core 2 Quad q9550, 4x2gb DDR2-800, Radeon HD 6350 (Cinema 4D needs OpenGL 4 to run and it isn't GPU rendered so this lets me just see the image), 80gb/500gb Seagate HDDs

Linux/2000s testbench:

Spoiler

Core 2 Quad q9650, Asus board, 2x2gb DDR2-800, GTX 670 2gb, 500gb Seagate HDD, 64gb AliExpress SSD, cheap Rosewill case

Yes, when you go into Capture Device click on the tick box for "Show more options" and it will give you the command line parameters you need to add to create a shortcut using the current options you selected.

If you only have a single capture device then simply "dshow://" should work on Windows to use the defaults.

Router:  Quotom-Q555G6-S05 running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak)

Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, Netgear MS510TXPP, Netgear GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen VDSL (~74Mbit) + VOXI 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)
