dpy
Specifies the display screen on which the Xv Server is to accept requests from Xv clients. If the display option is not specified, Xv uses the display screen specified by your DISPLAY environment variable. The display option has the format hostname:number. Using two colons (::) instead of one (:) indicates that DECnet is to be used for transport.

motion
Specifies True if the destination size needs to support full motion, and False if the destination size need only support still images.
vw,vh
Specifies the size of the source video region desired.
dw,dh
Specifies the size of the destination drawable region desired.
p_dw,p_dh
Pointers to where the closest destination sizes supported by the server are returned.
