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

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.
