Can only capture from a single microphone at a time

Reported by, Nov 15 2012

Issue description

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Capture from microphone 1 via ptrVoEHw->SetRecordingDevice(index1)
2. Capture from microphone 2 via ptrVoEHw->SetRecordingDevice(index2)

What is the expected result?
Two streams of captured data from different microphones would be nice

What do you see instead?
It stops recording the first device (see VoEHardwareImpl::SetRecordingDevice())

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
3.12 branch (stable).  Linux (though this applies to all)

I think this is expected. 
A number of usecases for getUserMedia rely on multiple simultaneous inputs (camera or mic).  Currently, if you want to support more than one stream of a media type using the codebase, you want to create two separate instances of the entire stack, which is sub-optimal and also may make synchronizing them painful (or at least annoying).

It is valid. We cannot do this. Changing type to feature request though.

As stated earlier, it is not a bug but a known (by design) limitation. Assigning an owner but no work is planned currently.
