NAME

ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_TYPE - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

#include <allegro5/allegro_video.h>
typedef enum ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_TYPE ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_TYPE;

DESCRIPTION

Used with al_get_video_position(3alleg5) to specify which position to retrieve. If these get out of sync, audio and video may be out of sync in the display of the video.
ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_ACTUAL - The amount of time the video has been playing. If the video has audio then this value can be ahead of ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_VIDEO_DECODE when video decoding lags.
ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_VIDEO_DECODE - The amount of video that has been decoded. This may lag behind the "actual" and audio positions if decoding is slower than realtime.
ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_AUDIO_DECODE - The amount of audio that has been decoded. This may be the same as ALLEGRO_VIDEO_POSITION_ACTUAL if audio decode is driving the position, which is common to keep audio and video in sync.
