Search vic sources for grabber-x11.cpp (vic can be configured to transmit a
live stream of a X11-root/single window via rtp, if i remember right).
Or have a look how grabbing works in scrot and ImageMagick:
Search imlib/imlib2 sources for "Imlib_create_image_from_drawable" or
ImageMagick soucres for "XImportImage".
