Issue running 2 WebCams on Raspberry Pi 2

I have a Raspberry Pi 2 with OSMC running. I had a Logitech C350 Webcam which was running fine using Motion for video recording and streaming. Recently I bought a second webcam same model and plugged it to the Pi, I ocnfigured Motion to use 2 threads for running both the cams, but whne I started motion it did not work correctly. Both the cameras did get turned ON as the LEDs on them were on, but when trying to access their video stream it did not work, the page just didn't load. Also I did a NetStat to see if the cameras stream port were running, it just showed one cam's port running.

I have checked each cam individually and they work with Motion but not able to work when both are started. Is this a power issue or performance issue? Any help would be appreciated.
