videoout - Video Library video output from screen tool
videoout [-nocontrol] [-borderwidth bw] [-n devnum] [-h] [-o
outputnodenum] [-I] [-f] [-geometry geometry-string]
-nocontrol Don't map controls window.
-borderwidth Set width of window border to bw.
-n Use video device number devnum.
-h Display usage message and exit.
-o Use output node number outputnodenum.
-I Print node and path IDs.
-f Disable forking.
-geometry Specifies size and placement of the output window. See X(1)

The application videoout, on hardware that supports the screen to video
path, puts video out from a rectangular or full-screen area of the screen
to the external video recorder or display.
It uses two windows: the first window is used to control what data to
send to the external device. The second window is just an outline that
shows what portion of the screen is sent to the output device. It can be
moved using the standard window manager methods, or by using the mouse
button number 1 on the border of the region.
The first window has a menu selected using the right button. This menu
contains two screen size options; send full screen or send screen. The
first will remove the outline region, and send the full screen (within
the scaling restrictions of the hardware.) The second, send screen, will
reinstate the outline region.
The application's default mode is to send a region of the screen.
There are two other menu choices; flicker filter (a toggle button) and
quit. The flicker filter button toggles the video hardware's function
that produces interlaced video output from a non-interlaced screen
Quit exits the application.
If -nocontrol is specified videoout does not put up the controls window.
If -borderwidth is specified videoout sets the width of the output window
border to bw. If this option is not specified the border width is set to
If -I is specified videoout prints the node and path IDs on stdout. These
are required when using the command line interface tool, vlcmd, to get or
set controls on the video hardware.
If -f is specified videoout will run in the foreground rather than
spawning a child and returning immediately.
If -o is specified observe the valid set of output nodes and there number
by using vlinfo(1).
