A variable that decides what camera backend to use.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3/SDL_hints.h>




By default, SDL will try all available camera backends in a reasonable order until it finds one that can work, but this hint allows the app or user to force a specific target, such as "directshow" if, say, you are on Windows Media Foundations but want to try DirectShow instead.

The default value is unset, in which case SDL will try to figure out the best camera backend on your behalf. This hint needs to be set before SDL_Init() is called to be useful.


This hint is available since SDL 3.0.0.
