NAME
       xscreensaver-getimage-video - put a video frame on the root window

SYNOPSIS
       xscreensaver-getimage-video  [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose]
       [--stdout]

DESCRIPTION
       The xscreensaver-getimage-video program is a  helper  program  for  the
       xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images.  Specifically, it is invoked
       by xscreensaver-getimage(1) as needed.  This is not a  user-level  com-
       mand.

       This  program grabs a random frame of video from	the system's video in-
       put, and	then loads it on the root window.  It does  this  by  figuring
       out  which frame-grabbing programs are installed	on the system, and in-
       voking the first	one  it	 finds.	   Then	 it  runs  xscreensaver-getim-
       age-file(1) to load that	image onto the root window.

OPTIONS
       xscreensaver-getimage-video accepts the following options:

       --verbose
	   Print diagnostics.

       --stdout
	   Instead of loading the image	onto the root window, write it to std-
	   out as a PBM	file.
