Comment (by andrixnet):

 According to http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=27 it
 should be working.

 I just confirmed it to work, based on instructions on that forum.
 While there is room for optimization, it does work.

 It would seem that some documentation, like a new chapter 14.13 be added
 to http://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html
 (I'll try to suggest something after further tests.)

 One thing that is lacking is the ability to list available capture devices
 ffmpeg -f dshow -i list
 does not work (analogy inspired from chapter 14.10). It should.

 The need to appeal to another tool (GraphEdit) to get the device names is
 more like a temporary hack.

 Will continue to test this and report back with more user experience.
 Also watch that forum thread.
