Device Enumerator for OpenCV
This project contains a C++ class that allows the enumeration of devices using DirectShow in Windows, in order to select and obtain the ID that needs to be used with OpenCV when creating, for example, a VideoCapture object to grab frames from a camera. I decided to put this up as "How to get the ID of a device to use inside OpenCV?" is a question that pops up continuously. The maintainers of OpenCV don't include this functionality in the library because it is very operating system dependant.
The project contains the class itself (DeviceEnumerator.h and DeviceEnumerator.cpp) and also an example of how to use the class (OpenCVDeviceEnumerator.cpp)
