    Looking for a hardware solution that allows one to plug multiple USB Webcams, with a single USB out, to use as a video "switcher" to change between the cameras.

    ANything out there like that?

      I'm pretty sure you won't find it. If you switch which USB camera is hooked up with a hardware switch, then it would be the same as unplugging one and plugging in the other. The software would suddenly miss the one it was using, and it wouldn't know to start using the other one until you told it to.
      Why not have multiple ones hooked up at the same time, and then switch between them? I use Wirecast to do exactly that. Boinx does that too, I believe.
