.TH rootv 1 "(c) 2000-2002 Gerd Knorr"
.SH NAME
rootv - display TV using the Xvideo extention
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B rootv [ options ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B rootv
puts a video to some window.  By default it creates its own window,
but you can also ask it to use the root window (thus the name) or any
other window.
.B rootv
needs the Xvideo extention.
.P
.B rootv
itself provides no way to control video/audio/tuner.  You can use
v4lctl to do this.
.SH OPTIONS
.B rootv
knows a number of command line options to modify the behaviour.
.TP
.B -help
Print a short description of all command line options.
.TP
.B -verbose
Be verbose.  That will dump some debug messages to stderr.
.TP
.B -root
Put the video onto the root window instead of creating a new window.
.TP
.B -id <win>
Put the video into the window <win> instead of creating a new window.
.TP
.B -station <st>
Tune station <st>.  This just calls v4lctl, which in turn will look up
the station in your ~/.xawtv config file.
.TP
.B -no-mute
Don't toggle mute.  By default rootv will unmute the TV card when it
starts and mute it on exit.  It does this using the XV_MUTE attribute
(if available).
.TP
.B -port <n>
Use Xvideo port <n>.  Try the -verbose switch if you want to know
which ones are available.
.TP
.B -bg
Fork into background.
.TP
.B -wm
Print WindowMaker menu (set stations using v4lctl).
.SH SEE ALSO
