DESCRIPTION

XvQueryAdaptors(3)
 returns an video adaptor information for the screen of the specified drawable. The XvAdaptorInfo structure has the following organization:

       XvPortID base_id;
       unsigned long num_ports;
       char type;
       char *name;
       unsigned long num_formats;
       XvFormat *formats;
       unsigned long num_adaptors;
     } XvAdaptorInfo;

base_id
The resource ID of the first adaptor port.
num_ports
The number of ports supported by the adaptor.
type
A bit mask with the value XvInputMask asserted if the adaptor supports video input, and value XvOutputMask asserted if the adaptor supports video output. In Xv protocol 2.2 and later, there are 3 new bits defined - XvVideoMask, XvStillMask and XvImageMask indicating that the adaptor is capable of video, still or image primitives respectively.
name
A vendor specific name that identifies the adaptor.
num_formats
The number of depth/visual id formats supported by the adaptor.
formats
A pointer to an array of XvFormat structures.

The XvFormat structure has the following organization:

       unsigned long visual_id;
     } XvFormat;

depth
A drawable depth supported by the adaptor.
