File descriptor returned by :ref:`open() <func-open>`.
Pointer to struct :c:type:`v4l2_audioout`.
To query the current audio output applications zero out the ``reserved``
array of a struct :c:type:`v4l2_audioout` and call the
``VIDIOC_G_AUDOUT`` ioctl with a pointer to this structure. Drivers fill
the rest of the structure or return an ``EINVAL`` error code when the device
has no audio inputs, or none which combine with the current video
Audio outputs have no writable properties. Nevertheless, to select the
current audio output applications can initialize the ``index`` field and
``reserved`` array (which in the future may contain writable properties)
of a struct :c:type:`v4l2_audioout` structure and call the
``VIDIOC_S_AUDOUT`` ioctl. Drivers switch to the requested output or
return the ``EINVAL`` error code when the index is out of bounds. This is a
write-only ioctl, it does not return the current audio output attributes
as ``VIDIOC_G_AUDOUT`` does.
.. note::
Connectors on a TV card to loop back the received audio signal
to a sound card are not audio outputs in this sense.

* - __u32
- ``index``
- Identifies the audio output, set by the driver or application.
* - __u8
- ``name``\ [32]
- Name of the audio output, a NUL-terminated ASCII string, for
example: "Line Out". This information is intended for the user,
preferably the connector label on the device itself.
* - __u32
- ``capability``
- Audio capability flags, none defined yet. Drivers must set this
field to zero.
* - __u32
- ``mode``
- Audio mode, none defined yet. Drivers and applications (on
``VIDIOC_S_AUDOUT``) must set this field to zero.
* - __u32
- ``reserved``\ [2]
- Reserved for future extensions. Drivers and applications must set
the array to zero.
Return Value
On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the ``errno`` variable is set
appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the
:ref:`Generic Error Codes <gen-errors>` chapter.
No audio outputs combine with the current video output, or the
number of the selected audio output is out of bounds or it does not
