I easily can broadcast my webcam with VLC using command lines like this (I use Windows):

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -vvv -I --dshow-vdev="Logitech QuickCam Express / Go" dshow:// --sout 

When I paste command into CMD and hit enter it starts streaming (all is fine - I can play it).

How can I now for example add brightness or any other filter to that stream from the commandline?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can enable the filters by doing --video-filter=<STRING> , where <STRING> is your filter. So in this case, --video-filter=adjust and then your switches to control brightness.
