Yavta

1 Overview[edit]

Yavta stands for "Yet Another V4L2 Test Application". This is a test application based on V4L2 Linux® kernel interface that allows testing, debugging and controlling camera subsystem.

2 How to use Yavta[edit]

/usr/sbin # yavta --help
Usage: yavta [options] device
Supported options:
-c, --capture[=nframes]         Capture frames
-C, --check-overrun             Verify dequeued frames for buffer overrun
-d, --delay                     Delay (in ms) before requeuing buffers
-D, --display                   Display frames
-f, --format format             Set the video format
-F, --file[=name]               Read/write frames from/to disk
        For video capture devices, the first '#' character in the file name is
        expanded to the frame sequence number. The default file name is
        'frame-#.bin'.
-h, --help                      Show this help screen
-i, --input input               Select the video input
-I, --fill-frames               Fill frames with check pattern before queuing them
-l, --list-controls             List available controls
-n, --nbufs n                   Set the number of video buffers
-p, --pause                     Pause before starting the video stream
-q, --quality n                 MJPEG quality (0-100)
-r, --get-control ctrl          Get control 'ctrl'
-R, --realtime=[priority]       Enable realtime RR scheduling
-s, --size WxH                  Set the frame size
-t, --time-per-frame num/denom  Set the time per frame (eg. 1/25 = 25 fps)
-u, --userptr                   Use the user pointers streaming method
-w, --set-control 'ctrl value'  Set control 'ctrl' to 'value'
    --enum-formats              Enumerate formats
    --enum-inputs               Enumerate inputs
    --no-query                  Don't query capabilities on open
    --offset                    User pointer buffer offset from page start
    --requeue-last              Requeue the last buffers before streamoff
    --skip n                    Skip the first n frames
    --sleep-forever             Sleep forever after configuring the device
    --stride value              Line stride in bytes
