If a DirectShow device fails to initialize, OBS crashes from numerous uninitialized memory reads.

Code:
diff --git a/DShowPlugin/DeviceSource.cpp b/DShowPlugin/DeviceSource.cpp
index 0d95239..c7632cb 100644
--- a/DShowPlugin/DeviceSource.cpp

     String strDevice = data->GetString(TEXT("device"));

Ah, thank you! Putting in the diff. If you want full git access some time, let me know. Will always give credit where credit is due as well. Sorry that you're having to rummage around in my not-always-so-clean/documented/commented code, with all my ancient custom written-from-scratch classes and structures.
