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
       elementary  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
       below.	 For   a   complete   description,   see  README  and  FAQ  in
       /usr/local/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
	      options 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
	      selected.

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>.
