@chapter Output Devices
@c man begin OUTPUT DEVICES

Output devices are configured elements in Libav which allow to write
5 6
multimedia data to an output device attached to your system.

When you configure your Libav build, all the supported output devices
8 9
are enabled by default. You can list all available ones using the
configure option "--list-outdevs".
10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

You can disable all the output devices using the configure option
"--disable-outdevs", and selectively enable an output device using the
option "--enable-outdev=@var{OUTDEV}", or you can disable a particular
input device using the option "--disable-outdev=@var{OUTDEV}".

The option "-formats" of the ff* tools will display the list of
enabled output devices (amongst the muxers).

A description of the currently available output devices follows.
