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
       input, and then loads it on the root window.  It does this by  figuring
       out  which  frame-grabbing  programs  are  installed on the system, and
       invoking 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.
