rootv



rootv(1)                                                              rootv(1)




NAME

       rootv - display TV using the Xvideo extention


SYNOPSIS

       rootv [ options ]


DESCRIPTION

       rootv  puts a video to some window.  By default it creates its own win-
       dow, but you can also ask it to use the root window (thus the name)  or
       any other window.  rootv needs the Xvideo extention.

       rootv itself provides no way to control video/audio/tuner.  You can use
       v4lctl to do this.


OPTIONS

       rootv knows a number of command line options to modify the behaviour.

       -help  Print a short description of all command line options.

       -verbose
              Be verbose.  That will dump some debug messages to stderr.

       -root  Put the video onto the root window instead  of  creating  a  new
              window.

       -id <win>
              Put  the  video  into the window <win> instead of creating a new
              window.

       -station <st>
              Tune station <st>.  This just calls v4lctl, which in  turn  will
              look up the station in your ~/.xawtv config file.

       -no-mute
              Don't  toggle  mute.   By  default rootv will unmute the TV card
              when it starts and mute it on exit.   It  does  this  using  the
              XV_MUTE attribute (if available).

       -port <n>
              Use  Xvideo  port  <n>.   Try the -verbose switch if you want to
              know which ones are available.

       -bg    Fork into background.

       -wm    Print WindowMaker menu (set stations using v4lctl).
