Synopsis

xscreensaver-getimage-video [--verbose]

Description

The xscreensaver-getimage-video program is a helper program for the xscreensaver hacks that manipulate images.  Specifically, it is invoked by xscreensaver-getimage(6x) as needed.

It grabs a single frame of video from the system's video input to a file, and prints the name of that file on stdout. It does this by figuring out which frame-grabbing programs are installed on the system, and invoking the first one it finds.

Options

xscreensaver-getimage-video accepts the following options:

--verbose

Print diagnostics.
