Making my 2nd Webcam the default for Empathy

It just so happens that I have two Webcams on my machine, one being a rather poor one built into the laptop and a 2nd better quality Logitech webcam.

Using the 2nd webcam by default in Empathy for video conference calls required a little bit of hackery with gconf-editor by changing /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/videosrc from v4l2src to vl4l2src device="/dev/video1"

This wasn't entirely the most user friendly way to configure the default. Ho hum..
