dpy Specifies the connection to the X server.
port Defines the port to which video output is sent.
d Defines the drawable (window) from which video output is
to be obtained.
gc Defines the graphical context. GC components are:
subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and
vx,vy,vw,vh Define the location and size of the video region is to
be written. vx and vy define the xand y coordinates of
the upper-left corner of the video region; vwand vh
define the width and height, in pixels, of the video
dx,dy,dw,dh Define the location of the source drawable from which
the video image is to be taken. dxand dy define the

outputs video from a drawable. The position and size of the
destination rectangle is specified by vx, vy, vw, and vh. The position
and size of the source rectangle is specified by dx, dy, dw, and dh.
Drawable data is clipped to the bounds of the drawable, scaled to the
requested video region size (or the closest size supported) and clipped
to the bounds of the video encoding. The contents of any region not
updated with drawable data is undefined.
If video is successfully initiated, an XvVideoNotify event with detail
XvStarted is generated for the drawable. If the port is already in
use, its video is preempted, and if the new drawable is different than
the old, an XvVideoNotify event with detail XvPreempted is generated
for the old drawable. If the port is grabbed by another client, this
request is ignored, and an XvVideoNotify event with detail XvBusy is
generated for the drawable.
