-
- <para>The <constant>VIDIOC_STREAMON</constant> and
-<constant>VIDIOC_STREAMOFF</constant> ioctl start and stop the capture
-or output process during streaming (<link linkend="mmap">memory
-mapping</link> or <link linkend="userp">user pointer</link>) I/O.</para>
-
- <para>Specifically the capture hardware is disabled and no input
-buffers are filled (if there are any empty buffers in the incoming
-queue) until <constant>VIDIOC_STREAMON</constant> has been called.
-Accordingly the output hardware is disabled, no video signal is
-produced until <constant>VIDIOC_STREAMON</constant> has been called.
-The ioctl will succeed only when at least one output buffer is in the
-incoming queue.</para>
-
- <para>The <constant>VIDIOC_STREAMOFF</constant> ioctl, apart of
-aborting or finishing any DMA in progress, unlocks any user pointer
-buffers locked in physical memory, and it removes all buffers from the
-incoming and outgoing queues. That means all images captured but not
-dequeued yet will be lost, likewise all images enqueued for output but
-not transmitted yet. I/O returns to the same state as after calling
-&VIDIOC-REQBUFS; and can be restarted accordingly.</para>
-
- <para>Both ioctls take a pointer to an integer, the desired buffer or
-stream type. This is the same as &v4l2-requestbuffers;
-<structfield>type</structfield>.</para>
-
- <para>Note applications can be preempted for unknown periods right
-before or after the <constant>VIDIOC_STREAMON</constant> or
-<constant>VIDIOC_STREAMOFF</constant> calls, there is no notion of
-starting or stopping "now". Buffer timestamps can be used to
-synchronize with other events.</para>
