This object allows playback of HDMI input or video provided by a video capture dongle. Note that the ifVideoInput methods do not apply to HDMI input, which can be achieved by passing an unmodified roVideoInput instance to the roVideoPlayer.PlayFile() method (see below for examples).
Object Creation: roVideoInput is created with no parameters:
GetStandards() As roArray
GetInputs() As roArray
These return an array of strings describing the various inputs and video standards that the video capture device supports. The following are the possible standards that can be returned: PAL-D/K, PAL-G, PAL-H, PAL-I, PAL-D, PAL-D1, PAL-K, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL-Nc, PAL-60, SECAM-B/G, ECAM-B, SECAM-D, SECAM-G, SECAM-H, SECAM-K, SECAM-K1, SECAM-L, SECAM-LC, SECAM-D/K, NTSC-M, NTSC-Mj, NTSC-443, NTSC-Mk, PAL-B and PAL-B1. Inputs returned are s-video and composite.
SetStandard(standard As String) As Boolean
GetCurrentStandard() As String
SetInput(input As String) As Boolean
GetCurrentInput() As String
Use the above to get and set the input and video standard.
GetControls() As roArray
Returns the possible controls on the input. These include "Brightness," "Contrast," "Saturation," "Hue," and others.
SetControlValue(control_name As String, value As Integer) As Boolean
Sets the value of the specified control.
GetCurrentControlValue(control_name As String) As roAssociativeArray
Returns an associative array with 3 members: "Value," "Minimum," and "Maximum." "Value" is the current value, and the possible range is specified by "Minimum" and "Maximum."
GetFormats() As Object
SetFormat(a As String, b As Integer, c As Integer) As Boolean
GetCurrentFormat() As String
