- <para>These ioctls control an audio/video (usually MPEG-) encoder.
-<constant>VIDIOC_ENCODER_CMD</constant> sends a command to the
-encoder, <constant>VIDIOC_TRY_ENCODER_CMD</constant> can be used to
-try a command without actually executing it.</para>
-
- <para>To send a command applications must initialize all fields of a
- &v4l2-encoder-cmd; and call
- <constant>VIDIOC_ENCODER_CMD</constant> or
- <constant>VIDIOC_TRY_ENCODER_CMD</constant> with a pointer to this
- structure.</para>
-
- <para>The <structfield>cmd</structfield> field must contain the
-command code. The <structfield>flags</structfield> field is currently
-only used by the STOP command and contains one bit: If the
-<constant>V4L2_ENC_CMD_STOP_AT_GOP_END</constant> flag is set,
-encoding will continue until the end of the current <wordasword>Group
-Of Pictures</wordasword>, otherwise it will stop immediately.</para>
-
- <para>A <function>read</function>() or &VIDIOC-STREAMON; call sends an implicit
-START command to the encoder if it has not been started yet. After a STOP command,
-<function>read</function>() calls will read the remaining data
-buffered by the driver. When the buffer is empty,
-<function>read</function>() will return zero and the next
-<function>read</function>() call will restart the encoder.</para>
-
- <para>A <function>close</function>() or &VIDIOC-STREAMOFF; call of a streaming
-file descriptor sends an implicit immediate STOP to the encoder, and all buffered
-data is discarded.</para>
-
- <para>These ioctls are optional, not all drivers may support
-them. They were introduced in Linux 2.6.21.</para>
