XvGrabPort(3X)      UNIX Programmer's Manual       XvGrabPort(3X)


     XvGrabPort - lock port for exclusive use by client


     #include <X11/extensions/Xvlib.h>

     XvGrabPort(dpy, port, time)

     Display *dpy;
     XvPortID port;
     Time time;


     dpy     Specifies the display screen on which the Xv Server
             is to accept requests from Xv clients.  If the
             display option is not specified, Xv uses the display
             screen specified by your DISPLAY environment vari-
             able.  The display option has the format
             hostname:number.  Using two colons (::) instead of
             one (:) indicates that DECnet is to be used for

     port    Defines the port to be grabbed.

     time    Specifies the request timestamp.


     XvGrabPort(3X) grabs a port.  Once a client grabs a port,
     only that client can make video requests to that port.

     If the time is before the current port time, the XvGrabPort
     request is ignored and XvInvalidTime is returned.  If the
     port is already grabbed by another client, XvAlreadyGrabbed
     is returned. Otherwise it returns a status of Success.  The
     port time is updated when the following requests are pro-
     cessed: XvGrabPort(3X), XvUngrabPort(3X), XvPutVideo(3X),
     XvPutStill(3X), XvGetVideo(3X), XvGetStill(3X).

     If the port is actively processing video for another client,
     the video is preempted, and an XvVideoNotify event with
     detail XvPreempted is generated for its drawable.

             Returned if XvGrabPort(3X) completed successfully.

             Returned if requested time is older than the current
             port time.
