rootv(1)		    General Commands Manual		      rootv(1)

NAME
       rootv - display TV using	the Xvideo extension

SYNOPSIS
       rootv [ options ]

DESCRIPTION
       rootv  puts a video to some window.  By default it creates its own win-
       dow, but	you can	also ask it to use the root window (thus the name)  or
       any other window.  rootv	needs the Xvideo extension.

       rootv itself provides no	way to control video/audio/tuner.  You can use
       v4lctl to do this.

OPTIONS
       rootv knows a number of command line options to modify the behaviour.

       -help  Print a short description	of all command line options.

       -verbose
	      Be verbose.  That	will dump some debug messages to stderr.

       -root  Put the video onto the root window instead  of  creating	a  new
	      window.

       -id <win>
	      Put  the	video  into the	window <win> instead of	creating a new
	      window.

       -station	<st>
	      Tune station <st>.  This just calls v4lctl, which	in  turn  will
	      look up the station in your ~/.xawtv config file.

       -no-mute
	      Don't  toggle  mute.   By	 default rootv will unmute the TV card
	      when it starts and mute it on exit.   It	does  this  using  the
	      XV_MUTE attribute	(if available).

       -port <n>
	      Use  Xvideo  port	 <n>.	Try the	-verbose switch	if you want to
	      know which ones are available.

       -bg    Fork into	background.

       -wm    Print WindowMaker	menu (set stations using v4lctl).
