     -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.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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).
