VIDIOC_ENUMINPUT - Enumerate video inputs
.. c:function:: int ioctl( int fd, VIDIOC_ENUMINPUT, struct v4l2_input *argp )
File descriptor returned by :ref:`open() <func-open>`.
Pointer to struct :c:type:`v4l2_input`.
To query the attributes of a video input applications initialize the
``index`` field of struct :c:type:`v4l2_input` and call the
:ref:`VIDIOC_ENUMINPUT` with a pointer to this structure. Drivers
fill the rest of the structure or return an ``EINVAL`` error code when the
index is out of bounds. To enumerate all inputs applications shall begin
at index zero, incrementing by one until the driver returns ``EINVAL``.

* - __u32
- ``index``
- Identifies the input, set by the application.
* - __u8
- ``name``\ [32]
- Name of the video input, a NUL-terminated ASCII string, for
example: "Vin (Composite 2)". This information is intended for the
user, preferably the connector label on the device itself.
* - __u32
- ``type``
- Type of the input, see :ref:`input-type`.
* - __u32
- ``audioset``
- Drivers can enumerate up to 32 video and audio inputs. This field
shows which audio inputs were selectable as audio source if this
was the currently selected video input. It is a bit mask. The LSB
corresponds to audio input 0, the MSB to input 31. Any number of
bits can be set, or none.
When the driver does not enumerate audio inputs no bits must be
set. Applications shall not interpret this as lack of audio
support. Some drivers automatically select audio sources and do
not enumerate them since there is no choice anyway.
For details on audio inputs and how to select the current input
see :ref:`audio`.
* - __u32
- ``tuner``
- Capture devices can have zero or more tuners (RF demodulators).
When the ``type`` is set to ``V4L2_INPUT_TYPE_TUNER`` this is an
RF connector and this field identifies the tuner. It corresponds
to struct :c:type:`v4l2_tuner` field ``index``. For
details on tuners see :ref:`tuner`.
* - :ref:`v4l2_std_id <v4l2-std-id>`
- ``std``
- Every video input supports one or more different video standards.
This field is a set of all supported standards. For details on
video standards and how to switch see :ref:`standard`.
* - __u32
- ``status``
- This field provides status information about the input. See
:ref:`input-status` for flags. With the exception of the sensor
orientation bits ``status`` is only valid when this is the current
* - __u32
- ``capabilities``
- This field provides capabilities for the input. See
:ref:`input-capabilities` for flags.
* - __u32
- ``reserved``\ [3]
- Reserved for future extensions. Drivers must set the array to

- This input uses a tuner (RF demodulator).
- 2
- Any non-tuner video input, for example Composite Video,
S-Video, HDMI, camera sensor. The naming as ``_TYPE_CAMERA`` is historical,
today we would have called it ``_TYPE_VIDEO``.
- 3
- This input is a touch device for capturing raw touch data.

appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the
