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?

go to http://wiki.videolan.org/VLC_command-line_help and search for "filter".

or, y'know, someone could post a real answer here, instead of saying "RTM". -1. –  quack quixote May 14 '10 at 16:00
so the real answer would be to copy all the 30+ "filter" command line options (he asked "for [...] any other filter") from the manual here? which might change between versions? great idea. –  ax. May 20 '10 at 8:15
