NAME
       XvGetVideo - capture video from a drawable

SYNOPSIS
       #include <X11/extensions/Xvlib.h>

       int XvGetVideo(Display *dpy, XvPortID port, Drawable d, GC gc,
                      int vx, int vy, unsigned int vw, unsigned int vh,
                      int dx, int dy, unsigned int dw, unsigned int dh);

ARGUMENTS
       dpy            Specifies the connection to the X server.

       port           Defines the port to which video output is sent.

       d              Defines the drawable (window) from which video output is
                      to be obtained.

       gc             Defines the graphical context.  GC components are:
                      subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-
                      mask.

       vx,vy,vw,vh    Define the location and size of the video region is to
                      be written.  vx and vy define the xand y coordinates of
                      the upper-left corner of the video region; vwand vh
                      define the width and height, in pixels, of the video
                      region.

       dx,dy,dw,dh    Define the location of the source drawable from which
                      the video image is to be taken.  dxand dy define the
                      xand y coordinates of the upper-left corner of the
                      drawable region; dwand dh define the width and height,
                      in pixels, of the drawable region.

DESCRIPTION
       outputs video from a drawable.  The position and size of the
       destination rectangle is specified by vx, vy, vw, and vh.  The position
       and size of the source rectangle is specified by dx, dy, dw, and dh.

       Drawable data is clipped to the bounds of the drawable, scaled to the
       requested video region size (or the closest size supported) and clipped
       to the bounds of the video encoding.  The contents of any region not
       updated with drawable data is undefined.

       If video is successfully initiated, an XvVideoNotify event with detail
       XvStarted is generated for the drawable.  If the port is already in
       use, its video is preempted, and if the new drawable is different than
       the old, an XvVideoNotify event with detail XvPreempted is generated
       for the old drawable.  If the port is grabbed by another client, this
       request is ignored, and an XvVideoNotify event with detail XvBusy is
       generated for the drawable.

RETURN VALUES
       [Success]
               Returned if XvGetVideo(3) completed successfully.

       [XvBadExtension]
               Returned if the Xv extension is unavailable.

       [XvBadAlloc]
               Returned if XvGetVideo(3) failed to allocate memory to process
               the request.

DIAGNOSTICS
       [XvBadPort]
               Generated if the requested port does not exist.

       [BadGC] Generated if the requested graphics context does not exist.

       [BadDrawable]
               Generated if the requested drawable does not exist.
