Xv - X Window System video extension 

Description

The Xv extension provides support for video adaptors attached to an Xdisplay. It takes the approach that a display may have one or morevideo adaptors, each of which has one or more ports through whichindependent video streams pass.

An adaptor may be able to display video in a drawable, capture videofrom a drawable, or both. It translates between video encoding (NTSC,PAL, SECAM, etc...) and drawable format (depth and visual-id pair). Anadaptor may support multiple video encodings and/or multiple drawableformats.

Clients use Xv(3x) to gain access and manage sharing of a display'svideo resources. Typically, a client will use XvQueryExtension(3x) todetermine the status of the extension, XvQueryAdaptors(3x) to get adescription of what video adaptors exist, and XvQueryEncodings(3x) toget a description of what video encodings an adaptor supports.

Once a client has determined what video resources are available, it isfree to put video into a drawable or get video from a drawable,according the capabilities supported. Clients can select to receiveevents when video activity changes in a drawable and when portattributes have changed.
