AAXINE(1)		    General Commands Manual		     AAXINE(1)

NAME
       aaxine -	an ASCII art video player

SYNOPSIS
       aaxine  [aalib-options] [-A<audio-driver>] [-a<audio-channel>] [-R<rec-
       by>] [MRL...]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	explains the aaxine program. Aaxine, is	an aalib based
       frontend	for libxine, a versatile video/multimedia player.

       aaxine is for those who don't have a high end video card, but just want
       to watch	DVDs on	their good old vt100 ;-)

       Like xine, aaxine plays MPEG system (audio and video) streams, mpeg el-
       ementary	 streams  (e.g.	 .mp3  or  .mpv	files),	avi files (using win32
       codecs or ffmpeg), (S)VCDs, DVDs	and  many  more.  In  short,  anything
       that's supported	by xine-lib.

OPTIONS
       The  program  follows  usual GNU	command	line syntax, with long options
       starting	with two dashes	(`-').	A summary of options are included  be-
       low.   For  a  complete	description,  see  README  and FAQ in /usr/lo-
       cal/share/doc/xine-ui or	on the xine home page.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options and available output drivers (plugins).

       A big bunch of these options is provided	by aalib. Please refer to your
       aalib documentation for those!

       The  remaining options, labelled	AAXINE options:	when listed with "aax-
       ine --help", are	explained here.

       -A, --audio-driver _drv_
	      Use given	audio driver. Available	drivers	 can  be  listed  with
	      "aaxine --help"

       -a, --audio-channel _num_
	      Use given	audio channel. Channels	are sequentially numbered from
	      0	for first audio	track.

       -R, --recognize-by [option]
	      Determine	the method used	to recognize stream type. Possible op-
	      tions are:
	      `default': by content, then by extension,
	      `revert':	by extension, then by content,
	      `content': only by content,
	      `extension': only	by extension.
	      If  -R  is  given	 without an additional option, `revert'	is se-
	      lected.

MRLs
       MRLs are	similar	to URLs	in your	web browser. They describe  the	 media
       to  read	from. valid MRLs may be	plain file names or one	of the follow-
       ing:
       file:_path_
       fifo:_path_
       stdin:/
       dvd:/_title_._part_
       vcd:/_tracknumber_
       tcp://_host_:_port_
       rtp://_host_:_port_
       udp://_host_:_port_
       mms://_host_...
       http://_host_...
       cdda://_tracknumber_

       Several MRLs may	be specified in	order to play a	number of  consecutive
       streams.	 Additional  input  plugins will provide additional MRL	types.
       The ones	listed above are available with	stock libxine...
       After a delimiting # you	can add	several	stream parameters:

       novideo
	      video will be ignored

       noaudio
	      audio will be ignored

       nospu  subpictures will be ignored

       demux:_demux name_
	      specify the demux	plugin to use

       volume:_level_
	      set audio	volume

       compression:_level_
	      set audio	dynamic	range compression

       _config entry_:_config value_
	      assign a new value to any	config entry

CONTROL	KEYS
       Many features can be controlled by pressing control keys. The Key bind-
       ings are:

       <RETURN>	/ R
	      Play

       <SPACE> / P
	      Pause

       0      Jump to start of current stream

       1 .. 9 Jump to 10%..90% of current stream

       <PgUp> Jump to previous stream in playlist

       <PgDown>
	      Jump to next stream in playlist

       +      Select  next audio channel (may take up to a few seconds to take
	      effect)

       -      Select prev audio	channel

       Q      Exit.

BUGS
       none, of	course ;-) Well, there are surely a  few  of  those.  You  can
       probably	 best ask for support (and report bugs)	on our mailing list at
       <xine-user@lists.sf.net>.
