       Xv - X Window System video extension

       The  Xv	extension provides support for video adaptors attached to an X display.  It takes the approach that a
       display may have one or more video adaptors, each of which has one or more  ports  through  which  independent
       video streams pass.

       An  adaptor may be able to display video in a drawable, capture video from a drawable, or both.	It translates
       between video encoding (NTSC, PAL, SECAM, etc...) and drawable format (depth and visual-id pair).  An  adaptor
       may support multiple video encodings and/or multiple drawable formats.

       Clients	use Xv(3) to gain access and manage sharing of a display's video resources.  Typically, a client will
       use XvQueryExtension(3) to determine the status of the extension, XvQueryAdaptors(3) to get a  description  of
       what  video  adaptors  exist,  and XvQueryEncodings(3) to get a description of what video encodings an adaptor

       Once a client has determined what video resources are available, it is free to put video into  a  drawable  or
       get  video  from  a drawable, according the capabilities supported.  Clients can select to receive events when
       video activity changes in a drawable and when port attributes have changed.
