The 1st one belongs to a Bavarian Leutnant, probably 5th Bavarian Infantry regiment before 1915 or 5th field artillery (thanks Andy!).

The 2nd is an other ranks shoulder strap of Infanterie Regiment 92 from Brunswick.

Wrong, it's IR 116. IR 92 had a "round" W see 365221.jpg.

I agree with Bavarian 5th field artillery (active or reserve). Even though 5th Bavarian Infantry may in principle be possible, I haven't seen many gray officer's boards (instead of the silver thread) in combination with the pre-war piping.
