NAME
       XvQueryEncodings - return list of encodings for an adaptor

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

       int XvQueryEncodings(Display *dpy, XvPortID port,
                            unsigned int *p_num_encodings,
                            XvEncodingInfo **pp_encoding_info);

ARGUMENTS
       dpy     Specifies the connection to the X server.

       port    Specifies the port whose adaptor is to be queried for its list
               of encodings.

       p_num_encodings
               A pointer to where the number of encodings supported by the
               adaptor is written.

       pp_encoding_info
               A pointer to where the list of returned encoding information is
               returned.  XvEncodingInfo has the following structure:

                   typedef struct {
                     XvEncodingID encoding_id;
                     char *name;
                     unsigned long width;
                     unsigned long height;
                     XvRational rate;
                     unsigned long num_encodings;
                   } XvEncodingInfo;


       encoding_id
               Specifies the encoding-id of the encoding.  The encoding-id is
               used to identify an encoding when a port's encoding attribute
               is changed.

       name    A pointer to a formatted string that identifies the encoding.
               The string has the format "timing-signaltype".  For example
               "ntsc-composite".

       width,height
               The width and height, in pixels, of the decoded video image.

       rate    The field rate of the decoded video.

       The XvRational structure is used to specify a fractional number.  It
       has the following structure:

           typedef struct {
             int numerator;
             int denominator;
           } XvRational;

       The numerator and denominator fields specify the appropriate parts of a
       fractional number.

DESCRIPTION
       XvQueryEncodings(3) returns encoding information about an adaptor.
       Each encoding is described by the XvEncodingInfo structure described
       above.  The encodings are identified by an encoding-id, which can be
       used to set or get the encoding attribute of a port.

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

       [XvBadExtension]
               Returned if the Xv extension is unavailable.

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

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