RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for xscreensaver-getimage-video (redhat section 1)

XScreenSaver(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  XScreenSaver(1)

NAME
       xscreensaver-getimage-video - put a video frame on the root window

SYNOPSIS
       xscreensaver-getimage-video [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose] [--stdout]

DESCRIPTION
       The  xscreensaver-getimage-video  program  is  a helper program for the xscreensaver hacks
       that manipulate images.	 Specifically,	it  is	invoked  by  xscreensaver-getimage(1)  as
       needed.	This is not a user-level command.

       This  program  grabs a random frame of video from the system's video input, and then loads
       it on the root window.  It does this by figuring out  which  frame-grabbing  programs  are
       installed  on  the  system,  and  invoking the first one it finds.   Then it runs xscreen-
       saver-getimage-file(1) to load that image onto the root window.

OPTIONS
       xscreensaver-getimage-video accepts the following options:

       --verbose
	   Print diagnostics.

       --stdout
	   Instead of loading the image onto the root window, write it to stdout as a PBM file.
