VIDIOC_G_INPUT, VIDIOC_S_INPUT — Query or select the current video input
File descriptor returned by
To query the current video input applications call the
VIDIOC_G_INPUT ioctl with a pointer to an integer
where the driver stores the number of the input, as in the
index field. This ioctl will
fail only when there are no video inputs, returning
To select a video input applications store the number of the
desired input in an integer and call the
VIDIOC_S_INPUT ioctl with a pointer to this
integer. Side effects are possible. For example inputs may support
different video standards, so the driver may implicitly switch the
current standard. Because of these possible side effects applications
must select an input before querying or negotiating any other parameters.
Information about video inputs is available using the
On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the
errno variable is set appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the Generic Error Codes chapter.
The number of the video input is out of bounds.
