createCapture(VIDEO) way to select webcam?

Is there a way to select which webcam to capture video from when a computer has more than one video source available? I’ve looked in the source code but there doesn’t seem to be any way to list available webcams or indicate which you wish to use.

Might want to look at this thread https://stackoverflow.com/questions/34206480/capture-video-from-multiple-cameras-in-processing. Also it was confirmed that you can switch cameras as long as the computer sees the other camera
