NAME
       xscreensaver-getimage-video  -  grab  a	video  still  frame for	use by
       screen savers

SYNOPSIS
       xscreensaver-getimage-video [--verbose]

DESCRIPTION
       The xscreensaver-getimage-video program is a  helper  program  for  the
       xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images.  Specifically, it is invoked
       by xscreensaver-getimage(6) as needed.

       It grabs	a single frame of video	from the system's  video  input	 to  a
       file,  and prints the name of that file on stdout. It does this by fig-
       uring out which frame-grabbing programs are installed  on  the  system,
       and invoking the	first one it finds.

OPTIONS
       xscreensaver-getimage-video accepts the following options:

       --verbose
	   Print diagnostics.
