Use the revSetVideoGrabSettings command to restore settings for video capture.

Parameters:

The variableName is the name of a Revolution variable that contains the settings string. The settings string is a block of binary data returned by the revVideoGrabSettings function.

Comments:

You specify settings for video capture in the video capture dialog box, which is displayed by the revVideoGrabDialog command. You can get the current settings with the revVideoGrabSettings function and restore them later with the revSetVideoGrabSettings command. This allows you to make changes to the video-capture settings under script control.

Important! The revSetVideoGrabSettings command works only for QuickTimevideo capture.

Important! The revSetVideoGrabSettings command is part of the Video library. To ensure that the command works in a standalone application, you must include this custom library when you create your standalone. In the Inclusions section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window, make sure that "Video Grabber" is selected from the list of script libraries.

Use revSetVideoGrabSettings in conjunction with revVideoGrabDialog and revVideoGrabSettings. See User note under revVideoGrabDialog.

Note that the settings accessed by revVideoGrabSettings and revSetVideoGrabSettings are all the settings relevant to the video grabber: using revVideoGrabDialog affects some settings, depending on the parameter to it and the platform, but when you use revVideoGrabSettings and revSetVideoGrabSettings this retrieves and sets all the settings at once (video, audio, source, compression etc).
