NAME

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

       int XvQueryAdaptors(Display *dpy, Window window,
                           unsigned int *p_num_adaptors,
                           XvAdaptorInfo **pp_adaptor_info);

ARGUMENTS
       dpy     Specifies the connection to the X server.

       window  Specifies a window of the screen for which the adaptor
               information is desired.

       p_num_adaptors
               A pointer to where the number of adaptors for the specified
               screen is returned.

       pp_adaptor_info
               A pointer to where the list of returned adaptor information is
               returned.

DESCRIPTION
       XvQueryAdaptors(3)
        returns an video adaptor information for the screen of the specified
       drawable.  The XvAdaptorInfo structure has the following organization:

            typedef struct {
              XvPortID base_id;
              unsigned long num_ports;
              char type;
              char *name;
              unsigned long num_formats;
              XvFormat *formats;
              unsigned long num_adaptors;
            } XvAdaptorInfo;


       base_id The resource ID of the first adaptor port.

       num_ports
               The number of ports supported by the adaptor.

       type    A bit mask with the value XvInputMask asserted if the adaptor
               supports video input, and value XvOutputMask asserted if the
               adaptor supports video output.  In Xv protocol 2.2 and later,
               there are 3 new bits defined - XvVideoMask, XvStillMask and
               XvImageMask indicating that the adaptor is capable of video,
               still or image primitives respectively.

       name    A vendor specific name that identifies the adaptor.

       num_formats
               The number of depth/visual id formats supported by the adaptor.

       formats A pointer to an array of XvFormat structures.

       The XvFormat structure has the following organization:

            typedef struct {
              char depth;
              unsigned long visual_id;
            } XvFormat;


       depth   A drawable depth supported by the adaptor.

       visual_id
               A visual-id supported for the given depth by the adaptor.

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

       [XvBadExtension]
               Returned if the Xv extension is unavailable.

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

DIAGNOSTICS
       [Drawable]
               Returned if the requested drawable does not exist.
