NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     mvGetParams, mvSetParams, mvAddUserParam, mvSetMovieDefaults - get	and
     set the parameters	of a movie or track

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <dmedia/moviefile.h>

     DMparams* mvGetParams( MVid movieOrTrack )

     DMstatus mvSetParams( MVid	movieOrTrack, DMparams*	params,
				   DMparams* paramsSet )

     DMstatus mvAddUserParam( const char* paramName );

     DMstatus mvSetMovieDefaults( DMparams* params, MVfileformat format	)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     mvGetParams returns the parameter list associated with a movie or track.
     For movies, the parameter list contains the file format, looping mode,
     etc.  For tracks, the parameter list contains information about the
     format of the data	in the track.

     The parameter list	pointer	returned points	into the internal data
     structures	of the movie.  Any values from it that are to be kept should
     be	copied,	because	the movie library may change the structures if the
     movie is changed or closed.  Do not call dmParamsDestroy on the returned
     list, since it is owned by	the movie library.

     mvSetParams changes the parameters	of a movie or track. params is the
     list of parameter/value pairs that	you want to change.  Some parameters
     cannot be changed,	and some parameters are	not recognized by the movie
     library.  The parameters that were	recognized and that could be changed
     are placed	into paramsSet if it is	not NULL.

     mvAddUserParam tells the movie library about a user-defined parameter
     that is to	be stored with a movie or track.  This addition	is global and
     applies until the process dies.  mvAddUserParam is	called automatically
     by	the movie library when loading a movie that contains user parameters.
     If	this function is not called, any extraneous parameters passed to
     mvSetParams will be ignored.  User-defined	parameters can only be stored
     permanently in movie files	that have the MV_FORMAT_SGI_3 format.

     Names for user parameters must have 15 or fewer characters. The values
     stored in user parameters are restricted to being null-terminated strings
     with a length less	than 32K bytes.

     mvSetMovieDefaults	is used	to construct a parameter list that will	be
     used to create a movie.  It takes the desired format for the new movie
     file, and sets the	rest of	the movie parameters (such as loop mode) to
     their default values.  The	parameters set and their values	are:
