I'm trying to stream web camera and microphone in Windows using FFmpeg. First, I get my devices names (to specify -i parameter in streaming command) using a command like this:

ffmpeg -list_devices true -f dshow -i dummy

The problem is in wrong encoding of my microphone name: enter image description here

How can I add this device to "audio" parameter (Copying this name into "audio" gives no result)?
