This platform.cfg setting controls where the contents of the display buffer are stored, when such request is issued. This includes the visible contents of the video/application graphics planes as rendered in the GStreamer pipeline.

To trigger the snapshot, telnet into RI on localhost on port 23000, then select (d) for Display, then (s) for snapshot display. Each invocation creates an new snapshot, which is timestamped and places it into the RI.Platform.SnapshotDir directory.
