I don't think so, how many people use it really ? (without launching troll),
you use this method only in the last resort, when the STUN/udp nat traversal
doesn't work. If you limit the bandwidth to 128Kbits, you can have ~500
clients at the same times. Think about some french users can have 100Mbits in
upload at home. So i don't think it's impossible ...
If you don't allow video, just limit to 32kbps ...

Hum, i don't kile the current dialog, because most users have only one
device. So he can be annoy to have many steps ... to select nothing because
it's doesn't have the choice ...
We must select by default, the first sound, the first webcam found (in v4l2
first, then v4l1), and after that, if the users want to change the settings,
they can do it in preference.
Testing sound can have a advanced button to allow the user to choose the
device, but by default just guess the good device ...
