NAME
       darkice - an icecast / shoutcast	live audio streamer

SYNOPSIS
       darkice [options] -c config.file

DESCRIPTION
       DarkIce as a live audio streamer. It records audio from an audio	inter-
       face (e.g. sound	card), encodes it and sends it to a streaming  server.
       DarkIce can record from:

	   * OSS audio devices
	   * ALSA audio	devices
	   * Solaris audio interface
	   * Jack sources
	   * PulseAudio	sources

       DarkIce can encode in the following formats:

	   * mp3 - using the lame library
	   * mp2 - using the twolame library
	   * Ogg Vorbis
	   * Ogg Opus
	   * AAC - using the faac library
	   * AAC HEv2 -	using the libaacplus (3GPP reference code)

       DarkIce can send	the encoded stream to the following streaming servers:

	   * ShoutCast
	   * IceCast 1.3.x and 2.x
	   * Darwin Streaming Server

       Darkice runs on the following operating systems:

	   * FreeBSD
	   * Linux on intel and	PowerPC
	   * MacOS X
	   * NetBSD / OpenBSD
	   * SUN Solaris

       DarkIce	uses POSIX real-time scheduling	to keep	up with	sound card in-
       put.  POSIX real-time scheduling	is only	available if  the  program  is
       run as root.  Therefore it is recommended that DarkIce is run as	root.

OPTIONS
       -c config.file
	      Specifies	 what  configuration  file  to use.  If	not specified,
	      /etc/darkice.cfg will be used.

       -v n   Sets the verbosity level,	between	0 and 10. 0 is silent,	10  is
	      loud.  Defaults to 1.

       -h     Prints the help page and exits.

BUGS
       Lots of bugs.
