BUG: With two web cams conencted the pictures are mixed together in recordings

The two cameras are on different USB host interfaces

Any ideas?

I have the same bug. I am trying to run 2x Logitech C500 webcams on Ubuntu LTS Maverick v10.10 headless server.

I get random horizontal bands that look like they have been copied and pasted from the other webcam image. The bands are on about half of the images. The bands get detected as motion so I get a large number of motion detected images which don't have any real motion.
