You cannot do that from QML. You need to have some C++ glue for that.
You create a C++ class inheriting QObject which gets passed Camera::mediaObject from QML

Then request QVideoDeviceSelectorControl control. Use that to switch the devixe.

Don't bother with camera plus. It does not use QtMultimedia. It uses
GStreamer directly. Is that what you need?
